Madesimo: a dream, a holiday, an experience
When you think of the ultimate holiday, it is easy to imagine far-off destinations, somewhere hard to reach, somewhere daunting. Forget that cliché and see your dreams from a new perspective.
Only 110 kilometres from Milan, or 50 kilometres from Sondrio, is a place that poet Carducci visited repeatedly, spellbound by the beauty of the alpine countryside; there is everything you could ever want and more in Madesimo.
For those unafraid to brave the toughest slopes, start from the chair lift station at Val di Lei and travel 2.5 kilometres, for a total drop of 1,000 meters, to the entrance to the Alpe Groppera. It is the ‘Canalone’, a truly unique experience.
For those who love the snow unconditionally, try the trails for cross-country skiing and for snowmobiling, such as the Ski Area Valchiavenna or alpine skiing at the Baldiscio Pass – and don’t forget the chance to go snow kiting.
