Winter Activity Holidays in Italy

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!

Temperatures & daylight hours

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.
