Valleys you can cross on a mountain bike, historical and naturalistic paths you can walk along, or magnificent alps for all you climbing and mountaineering-lovers, run through by streams ideal for canyoning and rafting.
Valtellina knows how to welcome all sports' lovers: have you ever played golf surrounded by alps and vineyards? The sporting challenge changes with the four seasons, while enjoying the warm hospitality of the Valtellina, one can also practise a variety of sports and hobbies, from skiing both winter and summer, trekking, ski touring, rock climbing to sportive fishing and all today's emerging sports.
The major tourist centres of the valley boast swimming pools, tennis courts, golf courses, sports halls and ice rinks. Bormio and Valmasino offer thermal baths and cures all of which make for a pleasant and relaxing holiday.
The natural scenary of the valley is epitomised in the Stelvio National Park, the largest in Europe ever growing in demand and popularity in this age, for its clean air, pure nature and walks in an uncontaminated area of such beautiful panoramic views seemingly framed for the admirer, which have inspired many artists and writers, who have immortalised this beauty in their sketches, paintings and writings leaving us their "interpretation" of the Valtellina in testimony.
