Our environmental policy.

Why this holiday makes a difference.

By choosing our Cross country holiday you will be helping to sustain the local economy of the Alpine environment; which in modern times has suffered a massive depopulation.  We introduce you to local foods and local artiginal crafts. 

Cross country skiing causes minimal environmental damage  unlike downhill skiing.  At the same timeyou have the opportunity to learn about and see the wildlife in the area as well as experiencing a different view on winter sports.   

Our region is little known to the outside world yet we have one of Europe's most historic fortresses on our doorstep.  The regional authorities are trying to get this fortress recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage Site which would increase the profile of the region and help stem the depopulation and loss of artiginal crafts.

We are in the heart of Europe and we can demonstrate that to have a high altitude exciting experience need not involve costly and damaging long haul flights. 

  Our small group size enables us to adapt and be flexible without causing excess damage to the local environment.



The starting point for your mountain adventures!

Cross Country Skiing

Cross country skiing (nordic or langlauf style) is a very popular and environmentally friendly alternative to down hill skiing. Here in the Italian Alps it is also a popular and growing sport.

You do not have to have super endurance and the skills are easy to master. Ideal for a family holiday! It is inexpensive and you can travel at your own pace. After a morning you should have mastered the basics allowing you to explore unspiolt territiory seeing more of the area than you would on your "average" ski holiday.

We can provide you with all the equipment you need and take you out to explore the mountains and valleys.
