Madonna di Campiglio – Not only Orienteering
Madonna di Campiglio area, right below the Dolomites (UNESCO World Heritage Site), extends from the 370meters of altitude of Lago d’Idro to the 3400meters of altitude of Adamello massif located in the National Park Adamello Brenta. A real paradise of untouched nature, hiking trails and stunning views.

5 Days 2022, together with the notorious plateau Grostè and Campo Carlomagno areas for next summer will offer a part of the area with newly mapped areas from Pradalago toward Fortini and Campo Carlomagno and next to Patascoss.

Natural Wellness & Sport
Madonna di Campiglio mean nature and postcard-like views for a relaxing holiday and even a real detox from our everyday rushing life tanks to many barefoot walking trails and yoga activities. For those who loves a more active style holiday, there are plenty of choices from Mountain bike courses to horse riding activities, climbing, golf, paragliding and of course orienteering.

Local cuisine & traditional food
Naturally the local cuisine is connected to the locally grown herds, mushrooms and raised animals. Don’t miss the chance to taste some fo the tastiest traditional dishes like polenta, formaggio, salami. All available in the many restaurants and mountain huts.
