Summer holidays in the Dolomites...

The voice of nature

Active in the Dolomites
Ortisei/St.Ulrich in Val Gardena/Gröden is not only a true Eldorado in the winter, but it also offers numerous opportunities for active people and hiking fans in the summer. Be it easy walking tours in the Dolomites, Nordic Walking or alpine summit tours, there is the right thing for everybody. Alpine pastures and mountain huts invite you to take a rest and enjoy a South Tyrolean “Brettlmarende” (cold South Tyrolean specialties- Speck , cheese, sausages, …). What about a guided mountain bike tour? As always with a spectacular view of the South Tyrolean Dolomites in the UNESCO World Natural Heritage.

For a change, experience the lively hustle and bustle during a stroll in the pedestrian area of Ortisei/St. Ulrich, the main village of the Val Gardena/Grödnertal.
