Bergamo Valle di Scalve, nature, peace and quiet

A valley with big appeal, thanks to its emerald green pine woods and dolomitic peaks that crown the village of Schilpario. The perfect destination for those who love nature and want to avoid the crowds.

Hiking for everyone on the sheer rocks above Dezzo
The historic Via Mala along the Dezzo River is a hiking trail suitable for anyone, with its vertical rocky walls and deep ravines. This completely safe 2 km tourist route follows the old road dug out of the rock, with an 80-metre sheer drop down to the river and leads to the Travertino waterfall. Another nice excursion starts from just outside Schilpario and takes hikers into Valle del Vò, between Monte Bognaviso and Pizzo Tornello.
 

Cycling adventures
Breath-taking view points, unspoilt nature, rivers to be forded and natural mountain lakes capturing all the shades of green and blue. These are the most beautiful discoveries to make from the saddle of your mountain bike. Of all the routes in the valley, one must-try is the circular trail that starts in Schilpario, and takes in Vivione, Passo del Gatto and the lakes at Veneroccolo before descending once again to Schilpario after 32 kilometres. Another bike ride goes from Colere to the Gleno dam and back to Colere—34 kilometres in 4 hours. Finally, there is the trail up to the Campione mountain refuge from Schilpario and to the Campelli Lake, which returns to its starting point after 29 kilometres.
 

Cliff for climbing
In Colere, climbers can try out the Belingheri cliff, not very long, but challenging, Falesia Piantoni or Falesia Vallone in Castello, more technical and therefore calling for good training, as well as good climbing skills. Finally, there is the Vò waterfall that freezing over during winter becomes a gym and popular destination with climbers.

 

Highlights
1. Culture. A visit to the Museum of Ethnography in Schilpario involves a trip right inside the mountain, discovering mining secrets.

2. History. An easy walk in Bueggio takes visitors to see what remains of the Gleno dam, which collapsed in 1923.

3. Food and wine. Vilmaggiore is a hamlet in Vilminore and home to the Latteria Sociale Montana, the mountain cooperative dairy that produces the famous cheeses and is worth a visit.

4. Nature. A visit to the Alpine Arboretum in Gleno is a relaxing day out and a chance to learn more about the local trees.

5. Sport. Lovers of recreational fishing can catch brown, rainbow and brook trout in the River Dezzo.
