Bormio Italy Ski and Spa
April 1-7 2018
Join us this spring as we visit one of Italy’s premier and historic ski resorts. Off the beaten track, Bormio has long been a destination for well heeled Europeans and ski racers alike. It is also home to two thermal spas, one of which dates to the Roman era when legions would retreat to bathe their weary bodies in the natural mineral thermal springs emanating from the rock fissures above the town.
The skiing here is unmatched in the Alps of Europe. Located in the Stelvio National Park at the nexus of Switzerland, Austria and Italy the region benefits from the weather on the sunny side of the Alps and receives copious amounts of snow. Our guides are intimately familiar with on and off piste routes, affording alpine skiers of all abilities and interests the chance to get the most out of this paradise.
We look forward to introducing you to this special place in the Alps. Our guides are ready to take you on a day tour out of bounds. An overnight tour to an Italian Alpine Club cabin for dinner, a comfortable bed and an early breakfast before exploring some of the remote wilderness in the park can be arranged.
Our lodging is in a wonderful family owned and managed boutique hotel located in this ancient alpine trading and farming village moments on foot from the ski lifts. The village shops offering Italian fashion, crafts, sportswear and ski equipment are open into the early evening. Cafés serve tea, coffee and cakes. Apertivo hour is alive and well in Bormio – from six on, bars serve Aperol spritz and the lower valley’s renowned wines. We dine in trattorias featuring classic Valtalina alpine cooking and the Nebbiolo wines of the region – Sforzato, Inferno and Grumello.
The beautiful facilities of Bagni Vecchi and Bagni Nouva have been acquired by the QC Terme family from Torino and carefully restored. Offering full spa amenities they feature sauna, whirlpool, salt and ice baths and spectacular pools overlooking the valley. Physiotherapists and aestheticians are on staff for more extensive services.
