Scenic Winter Walks in the Euganean Hills

For your winter holiday in Abano and Montegrotto Terme, are you looking for a walk with a view that will give you lasting memories?
We have just the thing for you!

In winter, a natural phenomenon called “temperature inversion” creates a spectacular effect when the mist fills the valleys.

If you visit the Euganean Hills during winter you might be able to see this spectacle for yourself.
During winter, the temperature inversion in this area creates a unique effect which will stay with you forever.

What are we talking about?
Temperature inversion is a phenomenon when the lower temperatures in the valleys cause the air to get trapped there and it is not always exposed to the sun, whilst higher up the temperatures in the sunshine are higher.

What visible effect does this natural phenomenon have?
On the higher hilltops of the Euganean Hills (such as Monte della Madonna or Monte Venda), you can soak up the sun whilst the plains below are shrouded in a blanket of fog, concealing the villages and making it feel like the hills are islands in a sea of clouds.

Where is the best place to enjoy this spectacular sight?
It can be seen from the tops of the highest hills but for the very best views we recommend the following locations:

  • Monte Venda
  • Monte Ceva
  • the Mottolone plateau
  • Passo delle Volpi on Monte della Madonna close to the chapel
  • Sasso delle Eriche Monte Grande
  • Monte Cinto - Busa dei Briganti

So, come on! It’s time to plan your winter visit to the Euganean Hills and see the sea of clouds for yourself!
