With the arrival of autumn, the Alps release a symphony of colours and shades that enchant and fascinate visitors, thanks to the warm tones of yellow and orange, which paint the landscape creating an evocative atmosphere not to be missed. In this magical context, Livigno offers a mix of experiences between nature, relaxation, shopping and culture, ideal for discovering the many facets of Little Tibet in a long weekend immersed in the valley, among the colours and scents of its extraordinary landscapes.
During the most romantic season of the year, nature shows its warmest colours and paints a dreamy landscape: as the temperatures drop, the land prepares to welcome winter, the meadows turn yellow, the water begins to flow less abundantly in the streams and the plants begin to change colour. In this period, the green fir trees give way to the warm shades of the centuries-old larches, making the many hiking trails through the woods attractive, to be followed in perfect harmony with nature on foot or by bicycle.
In this resort it is possible to combine outdoor activities with many other experiences: be pampered at the Aquagranda Active You! centre; discover the traditions and customs of the area through the ethnographic objects preserved at the Mus!; devote yourself to the most exclusive shopping along the kilometre of boutiques, specialised shops and single-brand shops that enliven the centre.
Walking and trekking for all levels
The numerous paths that wind through the woods and lead up to the peaks are a true paradise for trekking enthusiasts. All you need is a pair of boots, a backpack and the advice of the Mountain Guides, who offer many interesting experiences suited to the level of physical and technical preparation of each visitor.
In this regard, for trekking lovers, Livigno offers many easy paths to walk in nature and in the meantime enjoy the uncontaminated landscape of the valley, such as the path that takes visitors to the panoramic Val Nera waterfalls, reachable in 1 hour and 40 minutes from the Al Vach car park.
The 17-kilometre-long cycle path that follows the entire length of the valley is also ideal for relaxing walks surrounded by the gentle slopes and the most impressive peaks of Livigno.
The impressive 3000-metre peaks are the perfect destination for experienced travelers who want to push their limits and go where the earth meets the clouds. To enhance the mountain heritage and bring travelers closer to the most desirable peaks, Livigno has launched the project 3000: summit diaries, which allows hikers to access a virtual diary by scanning a QR code located at the top, and leave their thoughts and messages to be shared with other mountain enthusiasts.
