An unforgettable summer
Walking, mountaineering and climbing in the legendary Dolomites
Change perspective: watch the world from above. In the Dolomites, you’re on top of the world.
The sunset bathes the Dolomites in a red light: it’s the “Rosié da sëra” – the alpenglow – a sight you will never forget. Just like all the other natural marvels these mountains have to offer. Explore them all, and don’t forget to bring your complimentary HolidayPass to reach your destinations free of charge!
Walking in a land of legend
Once upon a time, the Passo delle Erbe pass area was inhabited by mythical creatures. Walk in their tracks on the beautiful hiking trails winding around the Peitlerkofel massif and the Odle di Funes mountains. Start from our farm and follow the gentle ups and downs that will take you across alpine meadows dotted with gentians, rhododendrons and edelweiss in bloom. Challenge the Peitlerkofel: climb up to the mountain top and enjoy the sweeping view over the Rodengo/Luson Alp, one of South Tyrol’s largest high alpine pastures. And if you are looking for a great family hike, then try the Woody Walk trail on Mt. Plose, which has a number of children’s play areas along the route.
A climber’s paradise
The Dolomites are an undisputed paradise, attracting throngs of climbers from all over the world. From the Sass Rigais to the Piz Boé and Pisciadú, these stone giants with their overhanging rocks and spectacular climbing routes extend a tantalising invitation. Extreme mountaineer Reinhold Messner discovered his passion for climbing right here on Mt. Sass de Putia. There is also a crag at the foot of the mountain, with climbing routes of all levels of difficulty.
Trails, trails and more trails
If you are looking for an exciting destination for your mountain bike tours, you have found it. Get ready for some punchy climbs along rock tracks and Alpine paths. The tour around Mt. Sass de Putia is partly on exposed and steep trails, but the view is worth the challenge. There are also more flowing options leading across the mountain pastures, for example on the Rodengo/Luson Alp or at high altitude above the village of San Martino in Badia. If a downhill thrill is what you are after, you can opt for the Bressanone Bikepark on Mt. Plose, or for Mt. Plan de Corones, where six freeride trails guarantee adrenaline-packed descents.
Highways to Heaven
The mountain roads wind their way up to the Passo delle Erbe pass in a feast of curves and hairpin bends. A motorbiker’s dream. But that’s just the beginning, for the Sella, Pordoi, and Falzarego passes are waiting ahead… legendary tours with the added benefits of wonderful views. Take advantage of our garage to keep your motorcycle safe at night.
Full of zip? Try the zip line
Imagine rushing downhill, harnessed to a rope suspended over dense treetops. If that sounds like your cup of tea, don’t miss the zip line in San Vigilio, a 3.2 km long, adrenaline-packed adventure. The longest zip line in Europe, it rewards the brave with an elating sense of weightlessness.
The cowboys of the Dolomites
There is no feeling like the freedom we find on the back of a horse. Ride up hill and down dale, crossing mountain streams and Alpine meadows. You don’t have to be a professional to enjoy a ride: the instructors from the Sitting Bull Ranch in Longiarù will be happy to offer you guidance, whether for a one-hour taster or a day-long excursion.
not to miss
At the end of August, the cattle return from their summer “holiday” in the mountains. Join us on our Munt de Fornella Alpine pasture and take part in the traditional and colourful Almabtrieb parade, when we bring the cattle down from the pastures and celebrate the end of summer with music and delicious food.
