From Alpine ski mountaineering to energetic hikes on snowshoes. Or just the sheer pleasure of winter hiking: the Stelvio National Park has all it takes for an ideal winter holiday in South Tyrol.

With no less than fourteen 3,000 m summits, six of them over 3,500 m, the Stelvio National Park around the Ortler mountain is a true ski mountaineering paradise. On these solitary summits, you can explore a variety of itineraries with breath-taking views. Along the more challenging routes, it’s better to have an experienced guide with you from one of the local Alpine ski schools.

Snowshoe hiking can also be practiced almost everywhere in the natural reserve around the Stelvio Pass. The valleys of the Martelltal/Val Martello and Ultental/Val d’Ultimo as well as the village of Trafoi, provide excellent starting points for long snowshoe hikes through the woods and on the slopes under the winter sun. Several of these itineraries provide spectacular panoramic views of the Ortler and Sesvenna mountains.

With its high plateaus in the Ortler-Cevedale Group, this snowy mountain terrain can also be traversed without snowshoes. Across the slopes and forests, this extensive network of trails leads through the mountains, to the sound of breathing – as hikers inhale the crisp mountain air.
