The maximum summer variety
Discover Val Gardena in your own way.
Would you like to leave your hiking poles and your bike in the sports cellar? That is worth doing from time to time, because there are a number of other activities in Ortisei that are worth trying out. From forest yoga to an introductory climbing course: the weekly Val Gardena Active programme, which is included in the price for our guests, also offers plenty of variety.
Jogging, Nordic walking or trail running off the beaten track: starting from the Rainell, you can give your Wanderlust free rein. Slip into your running shoes and discover new asphalt-free and panoramic trails every day in the valley or on Europe's largest high alpine pasture - in the Alpe di Siusi Running Park.
Sport climbing, alpine climbing, bouldering, via ferratas and high ropes courses: you can practice all disciplines of the sport in Val Gardena. An easy and safe way to get started is to climb a “Via Ferrata”. Ambitious athletes get their money´s worth on the three-thousand-metre peaks and in the climbing areas such as the "La Città dei Sassi", while families put their skills to the test in the Col de Flam adventure park.
Who wouldn't want to take off and see the most beautiful mountains in the world from above? When paragliding with certified and experienced tandem pilots, you start on the Seceda or Alpe di Siusi and land directly in Ortisei. Just take a few steps, lift off, float and enjoy... Alternatively, you can also reach lofty and panoramic heights by helicopter, starting from Pontives.
30 minutes by car are enough and you are in the middle of the 18-hole golf course Golfclub St. Vigil Seis. The courses at the foot of the Alpe di Siusi can be played from April to November and wind around gorges and past thundering waterfalls below the Sciliar. Long fairways provide space for long shots and easier holes offer more relaxation - and time to let your eyes wander.
For many people, there is nothing more better than trotting across the meadows on horseback, roaming through the forests and galloping along, conquering the kingdom of the Dolomites. Experience exciting rides in the mountains or take a course at the Ortisei riding stables. If you prefer to take things easy, it's best to take a carriage ride on the Alpe di Siusi or through the picturesque towns of Val Gardena.
As our guest, you can take part in the guided sunrise and sunset hikes with “Val Gardena Active” free of charge. Be there live and up close as the first rays of sun strike the peaks and nature slowly begins to awaken. Or when the light of the evening sun transforms the "pale mountains" into glowing and blazing cliffs. Early or late: Both are worthwhile!
