Autumn is about to say goodbye to the Bergamo Orobie. Temperatures drop, the trees are shedding their leaves, the typical seasonal colours begin to fade… and a white blanket spreads over the mountain sides. That’s right, the snow has arrived on our valleys, ready to kick off the winter!
The territory is preparing to welcome mountain-lovers, ready to offer them relaxation and fun at a high altitude. There are many slopes scattered along the valleys, natural playgrounds for those who love winter sports and want to enjoy the season to the fullest!
And for those who want to experience the mountain atmosphere in a different way?
We have a suggestion for you but … are you ready to get in the saddle?!
Experiencing the Orobie on a snowmobile excursion is a unique experience, to immerse yourself directly in pristine nature.
The day will begin as soon as you board your vehicle for the adventure. Your eyes will be struck by the wonder they will encounter. Curve after curve, a continuous succession of evergreen woods, dizzying hairpin bends and cliff-side views. All wrapped in brilliant whiteness, which gives these landscapes an unparalleled magic.
And if just one day wasn’t enough, VisitBergamo has the perfect solution for you: Ski Experience packages designed for families, beginners and experts, including accommodation and a Skipass at the best facilities in the province, for weekends that combine fun and comfort.
Immersing yourself in Bergamo’s valleys during a day on the snow can be the perfect opportunity to discover our incredible territories, one that your palate will also want to be part of. What better opportunity then, to taste our traditional cuisine? Many km0 excellences await you to give “taste” to your experience in the mountains, with mouth-watering, rich dishes.
The delicious Creste Scalvine are the ideal dish to savour our traditional cuisine. Half-moon ravioli, whose particular closure recalls the jagged peaks that surround the Scalve Valley – the Presolana, Pizzo Tornello, Cimon della Bagozza, Pizzo Camino and others – with a heart based on the homonymous cheese hidden inside.
The version at Cesira, an East Lombardy restaurant in the Seriana Valley, prepares them according to an original recipe. An original version, enriched with a bed of pumpkin cream and red corn chips. With every bite you will be delighted by the incredible mountain flavours.
If, on the other hand, you are a beer lover, the Brembana valley is a must. The Via Priula Brewery is located in San Pellegrino Terme, a true Bergamasco artisan excellence. The doors of the brewery are open to the public. Here you can admire the production sites up close on an in-depth guided tour, to learn about its history and the philosophy behind the production processes, obviously followed by an exquisite tasting of local products. Absolutely unmissable!
It is enough to experience them once to fall in love with them. From breathtaking landscapes to cuisine, from sports to relaxation, the Orobie are a real experience to live. A vast and incredible territory that comes to life in winter and brings out the best it has to offer… Seeing is believing!
