Summer holidays in Alta Pusteria: An active vacation in the most beautiful part of South Tyrol
Here in the Alta Pusteria, even those guests who normally spend their holidays in a more relaxed way, enjoy being active. This is most definitely due to the ever present mountain scenery, which motivates our guest to explore this amazing setting every day. During your summer holiday in Alta Pusteria, every day you can enjoy many nature experiences and get both body and mind up and running. You just need to step outside the hotel, where fantastic hiking paths and bike trails begin.
Hiking trails to the most spectacular spots in the region
Circular paths, exciting theme tours and challenging peak trails – during a summer holiday in Alta Pusteria you can discover the Sesto Dolomites in all their splendour! You will find charming spots behind every mountain slope and river bend. The Prato Piazza in the Braies Valley with its stunning view is just one of many destinations we recommend.
Bike tours on the sunny side of the Dolomites
You will find plenty of bike tours for families or challenging MTB trails in the land of the Three Peaks, thanks to a vast route network, which will satisfy all your expectations. Enjoy your summer holiday in Alta Pusteria to the fullest. If the summer heat becomes too intense, you can cool down by jumping into the crystal clear mountain waters of the alpine lakes Lago di Dobbiaco and Lago di Landro – both are just a few kilometres away from Villabassa.
Thrills and spills in the majestic Three Peaks mountains
The cable cars in 3 Zinnen Dolomites take you up to the five most popular mountains: Monte Elmo, Stiergarten, Croda Rossa, Monte Baranci and Comelico (Col d’la Tenda), all of which offer hikers, bikers and families plenty of exciting attractions.
|BARANCI – The family adventure mountain|
The perfect destination for families at the foot of the imposing Monte Baranci. Flowering meadows and lush green pastures provide a wonderful playground for young and old. There’s lots to enjoy up here: the “Zwergenparcours” ropes course; the barefoot lakes; a tubing course; and the Fun Bob summer toboggan run.
|STIERGARTEN – The mountain of alpine pastures|
Normally the great views come only at the end of a tour, but Orto del Toro gives you an early reward with a view of the Sesto sundial and the Three Peaks. The mountain is a wonderful starting point for lots of hikes and bike tours to the Sesto mountain pastures and over the Carnic Alpine ridgeway.
|MONTE ELMO – the mountain with views|
There’s nowhere else in the area which offers you such a far-ranging view as Monte Elmo! And the visitor experience is enhanced by Olperl’s Mountain World, the Kinderalm, and a variety of walking and hiking trails from which you can marvel at the sunrise or sunset.
|CRODA ROSSA – the Dolomite experience|
The Dolomites are almost close enough to touch from Croda Rossa. This is a location where there were military emplacements in the First World War, and you can immerse yourself in history here, scale the most famous via ferratas in the Alps and visit the smallest and only reindeer herd in the Alps.
