Trekking from Bormio 3000
Bormio 3000 is also the ideal point of departure for a high-altitude excursion, the Tour of the Vallecetta, a walk recommended by locals as a “must do trek” for all mountain-lovers.
After arriving at the Panoramic Restaurant Heaven 3000 with the cable-car, first head towards the Beautiful Lakes, an alluring mountain wilderness area, then towards Sobretta and the Pozzo d’acqua, finally returning to Bormio 2000. (See below for a detailed description of the trek).
On a hot summer’s day, for families wishing to enjoy the magnificent mountain walks available in our area, far from the crowds and the most popular places, we suggest the following excursion.
And before you set off – don’t miss the opportunity for an excellent coffee and a snack at Heaven 3000! We’re waiting for you!
