Val Delle Mine Refuge Out-And-Back Map

Val Delle Mine is a peaceful valley with a great network of hiking trails just outside of the centre of Livigno. This hike takes you up to the Val Delle Mine refuge where you can enjoy delicious Italian refreshments and wonderful views of the San Rocco area. The refuge also has a couple of pet donkeys and outside play equipment, making it a great stop for kids.

Description

From the car park P6 just south of Livigno centre, follow the signs for `L’AL m 1900’, which takes you up the gravel track by the side of a white church up through a forest. The path quickly leaves the forest, opening out into a clearing where you get fantastic views of the San Rocca area. There are a series of hiking trails branching off the main path—stick to the main gravel track, following signs to the Alpe Mine refuge.

After a few kilometres of gentle climb, you will come to the nicely-situated Val delle Mine refuge where you can stop for a panini and a coffee and enjoy the views of the surrounding mountains, complete with the sound of cowbells chiming across the pastures.

When you are rested and refreshed, turn back the way you came to the P6 carpark.
