Insider Valtelline and Valmalenco
Seven tips to discover the Valtelline and Valmalenco following the advice of someone who was born and lives there
From the Fellaria glacier to the thermal baths of Bormio. Plus the pizzoccheri of Teglio and skiing in Valmalenco. While awaiting the 2026 Winter Olympics, come and discover our marvellous mountains, which make Valtelline and Valmalenco unique.
Our high altitude Insider is Simone Polattini. Aged thirty-four, self-employed, he is an Enac operator and works in the field of aerial filming with the use of drones. Thanks to his passion for the video and photographic field, he knows every mountain in “his” Valmalenco, where he was born and raised. With his drone he has gone over the whole Valtelline inch by inch, from the peaks to the villages and the splendid vineyards. Here are his suggestions. His favourite place? “The Fellaria glacier: a showpiece of nature”.
To discover other destinations outside the usual routes follow #INSIDERinLombardia on the social networks. With us, apart from Simone, there is a large team of “photo ambassadors” invited to tell you about cities, mountains, lakes, villages, first-hand experiences.
