Perched high in the South Tyrolean Alps, close to the borders of both Austria and Switzerland, the town of Livigno is renowned for its winter sports opportunities, and the Hotel Garni al Plan is a great base from which to explore them.
The hotel offers comfortable and spacious rooms decorated in traditional alpine style, with rooms from singles up to family size, many with balconies offering stunning views of the snow-peaked mountains. All rooms offer Wi-Fi and satellite TV, and guests can enjoy an extensive buffet breakfast every morning.
The hotel is situated in the pedestrianised centre of Livigno, only a few minutes' walk from the main ski lifts to the slopes which have snow for 6 months of the year. Skiers of all abilities will enjoy Livigno's 115km of wide and well maintained pistes, with the highest starting at 3000m.
Livigno is also a well known centre for cross country and Nordic skiing, with over 40km of trails winding their way through the forests revealing spectacular alpine views around every corner. Snowboarders need not feel left out, with the modern snow park featuring jumps and other facilities for a change from the extensive fresh snow runs that the Livigno area offers.
For a less energetic approach to winter fun, snow-shoeing around the pretty winter trails is a great way to explore the beauty of the area. Lastly, the cold of the winter turns the many waterfalls in the area into walls of ice perfect for winter climbing, while the town also has an indoor ice climbing facility for learning or practising this exciting sport.
