Family destination – Bivio Savognin

Bivio is a small village near the famous St. Moritz, in the heart of the canton of Grisons (Graübunden in German) in Switzerland.

Exploring Bivio

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.

    Learning skiing in Bivio

    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!!

    How to prepare the baby for the snow?

    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.
