The combination of delicious food, spectacular scenery and a warm welcome make Italy the perfect destination for a winter holiday. The alpine ranges include the iconic Dolomites and Gran Paradiso National Park, both providing exciting terrain for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. Italy is only a short flight (2-3 hours) and you can arrive in Turin, Innsbruck (just over the border in Austria) or Catania in Sicily to get quick access to your winter destination. For those looking for a unique adventure, it is even possible to snowshoe on Mt Etna in Sicily, where deep snow can be found as low as 1800m!
Winter temperatures can bring periods of fine settled weather and from Christmas through to the end of February average daytime temperatures range between +4º and -15º C in the shade. These temperatures can feel surprisingly comfortable, largely because the air is very dry, and you will often be on the move.
