Northeast of Milan, the Livigno ski area offers lift-accessed mountain bike trails with a maximum vertical drop of 1,200m. The charming traditional village is set in the remove and isolated Valtellina Valley.
There are five cross country style mountain bike trails off the main lift accessed mountain including a route dropping off the back into Val Federia. The newer Mottolino Bike Park has 13 flow trails and downhill trails of varying difficulty.
In addition, there are long distance routes leading northwest towards Davos, Switzerland, and northeast to Val Mora which continues on to Val Muestair, Switzerland.
To get to the Livigno mountain biking, you will need to fly into Milan. From Milan, you can either rent a car or take the train to Tirano-Ferrovie dello Stato and then take a bus. Most of the buses in the region have bike racks on the back. Buses from Livigno also lead to Zernez, Switzerland.
Overall, Livigno is the 36th most popular mountain bike trail of all 45 mountain biking rides in Italy.
