This summer in Livigno, it's worth making an exception to the rule of "digital detox" on holiday and make sure you always have your smartphone well charged. It will be an invaluable ally for organizing your days, trying out new routes and participate in Win the Wonder, the competition that until September 26 transforms your stay in Livigno into a virtual treasure hunt and rewards the most enterprising players.
To participate, simply download the app My Livigno, available on Apple Store and Google Play Store, create an account and register.
In the dedicated section you can consult the complete list of locations to "conquer"; once selected the one of interest, just go there and frame the QR code of the initiative. In this way, at each stage, in addition to enriching their knowledge of the surroundings - and the memory of the smartphone of unforgettable shots - players accumulate points in a virtual wallet. The more points they collect, the greater their chances of winning one of the many prizes up for grabs during the final extraction.
The list of locations valid to participate in the contest includes famous spots such as the Crap de la Paré, one of the most instagrammed panoramic points south of Livigno Lake and reachable with an easy walk of about 1 hour and 30 minutes from the town center.
The initiative aims to encourage also the discovery of places and attractions less known and more isolated, which allow you to earn more points. For example the Madonon, the statue of the Madonna protector of the Mountain which is located about 50 minutes from the top of Carosello 3000, or even the Laghetto di Luigion, Alpe Vago and the Sentiero d'Arte, which are easier to reach.
The list also includes several Baitel, the typical unmanaged shelters where you can stop for a regenerating break or bivouac for the night, such as the Baitèl di Sc'taur, the Baitel da l'Ables and the Baitel da Plascianet. As a prize for the most curious and lucky players there are 2 winter stays of 7 days for 2 people, 3 summer weekends for 2 people, 3 summer weekends for two people and a city bike carbon fiber model Treviso disk model offered by Cicli Pinarello. The list of prizes also includes ski passes, technological gadgets and accessories for sports offered by Livigno's partner companies: Garmin, Globus, Brooks, Koo and Kask.

"With Win the Wonder we deepen our link with technology at the service of simpler and more rewarding tourism for the guest, but also more aware and with high added value for the whole territory - comments Luca Moretti, President and CEO of APT Livigno. "In addition to encouraging natural distancing, which will still be a necessity this summer, the gamification of Livigno offers us a new language to engage visitors and tell them about our cultural and scenic excellence, stimulate the discovery of lesser-known routes and attractions and, we hope, make people fall in love even more with our country and our valley. The public to which we are addressing is wide: from those who are in Livigno for the first time and need some ideas to organize their vacation, to those who return regularly and can experience new emotions by visiting places of the heart and places still unknown, with the tempting prospect of being able to return in winter. Without forgetting those who live and work in Livigno, who will be able to rediscover locations close to home and get useful ideas to advise their guests and clients.”
