Bivio is located in the Savognin region, on the largest national park in Switzerland, the Parc Ela, 1.769 m above sea level, between the Alpines Septimer and Julier Passes. Since antiquity, the Romans have transported goods through this region.
The language spoken in the canton of Grisons is the Romanche, the four official languages of Switzerland. (I think it sounds like Italian and French.) As one of the least spoken languages in Europe, residents of the region strive to keep their tongues alive and pass it on to future generations. One of the peculiarities of this canton is that around here, the houses have a name and a drawing that represents it.
The city welcomes families very well and is one of the favorite destinations of those traveling with children to the Alps. Here, children can walk alone on the streets, as hotels are practically beside the ski slopes. Another widely used lodging option is the rental of chalets or apartments per season.
The city’s tourist office offers tourists:
Bivio has more than 30 km of slopes prepared for skiing and snowboarding. All that Bivio offers in winter:
The kids took it 2days ski lessons in Bivio. There was in the morning and afternoon; this was quite enough to have some snow fun!!
When I took my son for the first time up to the mountains, he was only one year old. We had some experience on the Mount Rigi, and the same I did to prepare him for Bivio. Let your child feel free to play and move around in the snow; the movement will keep the cold away!!! Snow boots with fur are also essential not to protect against the cold and slippery floors/snow.
Essential accessories are thermal gloves; I care two pairs with me; they get lost easily. Thermal beanie and sunglasses, I use one with UV protection from Chicco. It is worth remembering that we have to use sunscreen even on cloudy days. I use 50 protection and also lip balm.
We want to get to know the region of Bivio in summer and enjoy everything!! Some of the activities in Savognin
We stayed at the Hotel Grischuna, very confortable with perfect location.
