Snowshoeing, sledding and other types of fun on skis

Leave your tracks in the snow:
the magic of winter in Val Pusteria

Pristine nature, a fabulous landscape, soft and crisp snow, and a fabulous feeling of freedom, far from the hustle and bustle of daily life.

The same can be said in winter for those who choose to visit Val Pusteria with their snowshoes and snow boots. And when the mist lifts and the sun spreads its warmth and infuses everything with beautifully intense colours, there is nothing better than to spend the day outdoors.
