in Winter

Thanks to its position on the border, it is a crossroads of languages and cultures where Italy, Slovenia and Austria meet. The excellent cuisine includes specialities from Friuli, Carinthia and Slovenia.

Tarvisio is also a pilgrimage destination thanks to the charming Sanctuary of the Virgin of Mount Lussari, a place where they say that the Virgin appeared.

For those who love to carry out activities in the open air, the Tarvisio area provides a very wide range of proposals. Near Tarvisio, the Fusine lakes (linked to one another by a charming route), the Montasio Plateau and the Sella Nevea ski area are definitely worth a visit.

In Winter, with skis on, along breathtaking descents or cross-country ski tracks immersed in magical woods (like the thrilling Di Prampero ski run), or with snowshoes, to enjoy the slow charm of landscapes of other times, in Tarvisio you will spend wonderful days on the snow.
At the International Dog Sledding and Mushing School of Tarvisio you will meet these beautiful four-legged friends and travel with them along enchanting snow-covered paths.

Tarvisio and the "Territory"

Surrounded by the Julian Alps and rich in wide valleys and woods – the Tarvisio Forest, with its 24,000 hectares, is Italy’s largest State forest – the town has a modern look but also an ancient soul, full of traditions worth discovering.
