Itineraries

Hiking in Stelvio National Park offers several possibilities: from the relaxing walks in the valley bottom to the challenging tours to the highest summits. Here you will find the description of some tours, from the easiest to the most demanding ones.
Some advice: always consider that you are facing mountain itineraries. Before leaving, you should inquire about the weather conditions and plan the route according to your hiking skills and training. It is recommended to wear clothes enabling a quick adjustment to the weather and/or temperature changes, characteristic of the mountain environment.
Wear adequate shoes: hiking shoes and trekking shoes are ideal. It is recommended to bring a rucksack with waterflask and packed lunch, as well as with a first aid kit.
Do not forget to bring binoculars and camera to observe and catch the wonderful moments the Park will offer you.
