Bormio and around – color

Junger Steinbock

The decision to travel to Bormio was made more or less out of necessity: At this time, Switzerland required people arriving from Luxembourg to be quarantined for ten days by corona. That seemed to us to be highly unsuitable for our hiking ambitions in the wonderful summer weather.

Monte Gavia

That’s when the idea came up: “Let’s go to Italy!” A destination was found quickly and a nice AirBnB apartment Chalet Casericc awaited us at Andrea’s, on the slope to Bormio 2000.
A little over two weeks with great hikes between Umbrailpass, Stilfser Joch, Passo Gavia and Fuorcla di Livigno!
