Blenio Valley


Blenio Valley

The Blenio Valley, also dubbed the “Valle del Sole” or “Valley of the Sun”, is a paradise for nature lovers and is just waiting to be discovered. In summer the area offers wonderful outings on foot or by mountain bike, immersing visitors in breathtaking landscapes. During the winter months, meanwhile, they can ski or sledge down pistes that seem to be designed perfectly for the whole family, or venture out along snowy trails laid out on flatter terrain for cross-country skiing or for exploring forests and streams.

The area is also steeped in history, which is brought to life in the re-enacted parades of the Napoleonic militias, in the rooms of small and sombre museums, in the ruins of Serravalle Castle or in the workshops of the Cima Norma factory, where the ancient art of chocolate-making has made way for the aromas and flavours of the region.

The valley is also home to hundreds of small rustic dwellings, which offer guests an authentic, quintessentially alpine base for their holidays.
