Nestled near the Swiss border in the Italian Alps north of Milano, Livigno – is an enchanting snow resort with 110km of fantastic trails to enjoy for all levels on both sides of the wide and sunny valley. There are off-piste options for days for those who like to light it up in the backcountry.
Livigno’s high altitude (1,816 metres above sea level) means the runs are wide and open, and the snow is generally plentiful and dry, particularly during January and February.
Livigno has recently been named as host to the Freestyle and Snowboard events in the Milano-Cortina 2026 Winter Olympic Games, as well as the venue for the Olympic Village.
Away from the slopes, the centre of Livigno is a lively, friendly and charming village with characteristic timber buildings and a pedestrian-only shopping avenue with an alpine vibe. There are bars galore, an abundance of pizzerias and restaurants and buzzing apres.
In true Italian style, food and wine is top quality in Livigno, with hundreds of restaurants to choose from, with all the flavours we love about Italy.
For extra adrenlin-infused experiences after skiing, Livigno has so much to offer. Fat biking, ice climbing, snowmobiling, ice driving courses, dog sledding, horse riding, ice quad biking, paragliding and ice skating are all optional apres-ski activities in Livigno!
Shopaholics are fully hooked up in Livigno with the area enjoying a special duty-free status, meaning items like perfume and alcohol are cheap cheap cheap.
You can fly in to either Milan-Malpensa International Airport or Zurich Airport then transfer by bus, car or train to Livigno. Livigno is 4-5 hours from Milan Malpensa by car, and 3-4 hours from Zurich Airport. We recommend flying into Milan-Malpensa International Airport and getting a transfer via the Livigno Express shuttle service, which has a number of services to and from Livigno during winter. Or if you want to book a private shuttle, contact Moreno at Taxi Livigno and they’ll deliver you and your family direct to your accommodation at your desired time. You can email Moreno via firstname.lastname@example.org
Once you touch down in Livigno, you won’t need a car as there is a fantastic free bus service around town, and most accommodation options are within walking distance to the slopes.
The Arc has partnered with a handful of accommodation options that are either within walking distance to our daily meeting place, or on the public bus route. These properties are highly recommended by The Arc’s team, as well as families who have previously participated in The Arc.
