The entertaining alpine circuit for the entire family
- Olperl Nature Park
Our perfect summer highlight: The entrance to the new nature park is right next to the Helm-Bahnen mountain station and invites visitors to meet Olperl’s best friends – in the realm of the animals’ mountain world. The circular trail is 1.2 km long and is suitable for buggies. As you walk, you’ll come across 10 special and very exciting places – with fantastic views of the Sesto Dolomites. Olperl, the hoaxster with luminous eyes as big as saucers, keeps you company along the trail
BAREFOOT in Olperl’s footprints
The highest barefoot trail in the Dolomites at 2,150 m above sea level is the healthy and enjoyable way to explore Olperl’s Nature Park. Soft moss, fragrant larch trees, stone slabs and shingle stimulate the foot reflex zones, before you immerse your feet in the cool spring water – so refreshing.
- The family-adventure-mountain¬ Baranci
Baranci is the popular mountain for family excursions. The 4-seater chair lift is situated 3 minutes from San Candido village centre and takes you quickly up to an altitude of 1,500 m. Flowering meadows and lush green pastures provide a wonderful playground for young and old: There are waiting highlights like the children’s highlight adventure trail, a tubing run and the fun bob. The mountain station is the starting point for many easy and medium hikes through spruce forests and up to the Baranci summit with stunning views of the Three Peaks.
