Winter holidays - snowshoeing & Co.

The Puster Valley in winter: winter hiking & more

Excursions on the snow…

You will find freedom, a pristine landscape, peace and majestic peaks and priceless views away from the slopes and far from the bustle of ski resorts.

Experience winter in the Puster Valley from its most beautiful side!

Especially hiking, mountaineering and cross-country ski enthusiasts have won the lottery: the main chain of the Alps, the Vedrette di Ries Group and the Dolomites have countless tours for cross-country ski and snowshoe enthusiasts to be discovered. For cross-country skiers we recommend the pass for the slopes of the Nordic Dolomites, which will give you the opportunity to take advantage of 11 (!) circuits. Those who love speeding on snow with the sled, will certainly go to Rio Bianco, the Weizgruber alpine cottage or on the Monte Spicco, where the longest toboggan run in South Tyrol is located!
