Stretching from the Stelvio Nature Park to the Ronzino gorge near to Lana, the Val d’Ultimo valley boasts a length of 40 km. Numerous mountain pastures and a stunning view of the south-eastern Ortles mountains render it an ideal place for nature and mountain enthusiasts. This is also what mainly characterises the Alta Val di Non, a spot of land to sit back and take a break from everyday life. Old farms and wooden shingle-roofed houses make the Val d’Ultimo so special and reveal how much the residents care about their traditions and culture. Moreover there are cottage gardens and large fields and woods as far as the eyes can see.
Hikers can look forward to some 600 km of marked hiking trails and lovely mountain pastures, especially popular in summer. Winter turns the Schwemmalm pasture in to a nice skiing and snowboarding area, with a great view of the Ortles massif and a series of 3,000 m high mountains. The villages that belong to the Val d’Ultimo valley are called San Pancrazio, Santa Valburga, San Nicolò and Santa Geltrude, while the Alta Val di Non villages are called San Felice, Proves, Senale and Lauregno.
