Short break in the Alps
Join us for a short scenic Alps trip. You will travel from Milan to Mathon and then to the Albula Alps, a lovely mountain range in the Alps of eastern Switzerland. Driving this stretch guarantees wonderful views like that of the rough, weathered Albula Gorge. An unspoiled pass, with a wonderful tight run up through the meadows before the wild-romantic Albula Valley quickly opens to some beautiful sweepers and breathtaking peaks. On the north ramps views of the glacier express and some of the wonderful viaduct bridges this amazing railway line runs along.
The journey continues towards the Müstair Valley which is a little-known mountain valley south of the Ofen Pass offering a secluded haven with a mild climate. The trip across the Ofen Pass is an adventure. Together with the Swiss National Park, the valley forms the Biosfera Val Müstair Parc Naziunal, Switzerland’s first UNESCO biosphere reservein the high Alpine region. A visit to this wonderful place is a must for culture lovers because of the frescoes at the monastery of St. Johann, a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site.
Discover Naturno, one of the most popular holiday destinations in South Tyrol and a great location for a nature-based vacation. The locals take great pride in their produce: the fresh fruit, wine, and cheeses of this area are alone worth the drive. On both sides of the Sonnenberg and Nörderberg mountains there are numerous traditional dairy farms.
Walk up through the Tessa Group Nature Park which covers 33,000 hectares and is the largest of South Tyrol’s seven natural parks. Particularly picturesque and rich in history are the surrounding villages of Cirlano, Tablà and Stava and the neighbouring hamlet of Plaus. In the heart of each village lies an enchanting church. One unusual glimpse into the past can be discovered in the walls surrounding the St. Ulrich Church graveyard.
