In a spectacular alpine environment, within the Stelvio National Park, S. Caterina offers plenty of opportunities: hiking, Nordic walking, and mountain running in some of the most beautiful valleys of the Alta Valtellina, such as the Val Zebrù and Val Cedec, where you can climb up to admire the wonderful panorama of the Forni glacier. Immersed in nature, you can also do excursions on horseback.
Summer is also the season for road cycling, and with it the challenge of the legendary alpine pass Gavia. On the other hand, those who prefer mountain biking will not be disappointed by the large selection of trails for cross country and freeride. For those who want to challenge nature, what could be better than rock climbing and bouldering in summer or ice climbing a frozen waterfall in winter?
Snow sports are of course available here in all variations: Downhill skiing, snowboarding, telemark, freeride and snowshoeing. Also the lovers of Nordic skiing will not be disappointed thanks to the Valtellina slope, with loops for racers and tourists.
