Glaciers in Lombardy

Nine glaciers in Lombardy to discover through spectacular glaciological itineraries

From simple walks to the most challenging treks, here are our tips for discovering nine glaciers in Lombardy!

 

Lombardy is home to some of the highest massifs in the Alps east of the Gotthard, including the Cevedale (3,779 metres), the Adamello (3,539 metres) and Piz Bernina (4,049 metres). These mountains are home to the largest glacial masses of the Italian Alps, and constitute a unique environmental heritage to be defended and discovered with due preparation by following the glaciological paths.

This new and exciting challenge always requires adequate preparation or the presence of expert guides.

The promise? Wonderful views overlooking the forests and pastures below and on upwards to the rocks and glaciers, where there are only the sky and the clouds to keep you company.
