Snow in the Alps

Snow in the Alps

Experience the Valtellina snow in the Italian Alps and enjoy a glimpse of Lake Como.

7-10 Hours 2-6 People Minibus

Mountains in an amazing way.

We depart from Milan Central Train Station at 8:00 am for an hour train ride to Varenna, a charming little town on Lake Como, where we begin our excursion. After a short walk through this picturesque village we drive to Sondrio in Valtellina, the Alpine valley that begins above Lake Como. From there we drive for twenty minutes to the gondola that carries us to the ski area where we take in the views of the snow-covered slopes and the skiers. We have the option of skiing renting boots and skis! If we choose to ski, we do not attempt anything difficult. The activity is intended more for beginners or first-timers. At some point we can have lunch at a nearby restaurant. At around 3:00 pm we catch the gondola for the return trip to our car for the drive back to the lake and the final train ride to Milan.

Best trip I’ve ever had in Italy! My fiancé found Luca in TripAdvisor and we figured out day to join the tour. Luca is very professional, humorous and friendly. He showed us the best of Como and told us about the history there throughout our journey. And best, he has awesome driving skill. You’d feel super comfortable in his car and we enjoyed our conversations too. LUCA is the best!

I see why Luca is #1. Our private trip was spectacular. Communication before, during and after was perfect. The tour itself was not rushed and the information provided was spot on and endless. Every stop from Varenna to Valtellina has not only a purpose, but showed us "real" Italian living in this spectacular valley filled with vineyards, castles, agriculture, monastery, & small towns.
