With its 134,620 hectares, the Stelvio National Park stretches out amidst the central Alp ranges. Plenty of well equipped hiking trails start off from Val Martello, hike through the lovely mountain pastures and terraced out hangs to finally reach the park's snow covered glacier.
In a blink you are out of the woods. Brilliant alpine roses are in bloom along brooks and streams. The breathtaking view makes you feel as though you can just snatch at the crosses marking the mountain peaks.
Even the lightest and easiest of excursions will grant an encompassing view of all the most imposing peaks around you.
Ski-track fans that prefer gliding over deeply snow covered woods will find that the Martello biathlon and cross-country ski centre offers you the best.
