There are so many things to do in the winter in Livigno, Italy that we sometimes forget all the advances of a vacation during the summer in this beautiful village. While there seems to only be skiing during the winter, the summers in Livigno have so much more to offer. While the winters are harsh, the summertime is beautiful. Some of the summer activities that you can do are fishing in the river Spol, trekking, climbing, mountaineering, taking your kids to the playground, and yes mushroom picking. All of this is for any age to enjoy, adults and kids alike. So, whether you are having a romantic getaway or a family excursion then there is always something for everyone to do. There are so many places to choose from to stay while you are on this trip. Most of the hotels in Livigno are rated highly. Or maybe you’d rather stay at an inn and have a more personal experience.
If it is your first trip to Livigno and you want to hit the trails on the mountain, it’s recommended to have a mountain guide with you the first time. You would want a guide if you were trekking or mountaineering. This of course is not needed because they have made a sign system where it’s almost impossible to get lost. If you are scared that you are starting to get lost and you find a sign, it will lead you back to the sign nearest the village. Also, if you get tired or feel that you no longer want to hike then there is free public transportation back to the village. If you decide to go with a guide you can choose from a number of different excursions such as taking one day trips, camping, and exploring the highest peaks. Whatever your preference, it’s always there for you to do with the option of a guide. While you are on the trails look around and you’ll see porcini mushroom ready to be picked.
When you aren’t out enjoying the hiking experience, you can stay in town and enjoy fishing on the river. Otherwise, if your kids are with you then there are a number of playgrounds that they can enjoy with just a short walk in town. Maybe you have an interest in climbing either to feel closer to nature or to view the town from higher up, they have help with that as well. Whether you’re a beginner or an expert, anyone can enjoy this activity. There are the natural rock walls for you to climb or if you don’t feel as adventurous then you can climb fake rock walls hooked onto a cable with no worry of falling.
So, regardless if you are planning to stay in a hotel or at an inn, you won’t spend much time there other then sleeping. There is just too much fun to be had and too much beauty to be seen to stay cooped up in a hotel. Book your stay now and enjoy one of the best vacations of your life.
