Outdoor Winter Activities

Winter for the whole family in South Tyrol

In Funes Valley, far from the hustle and bustle of the ski slopes winter fans, sports enthusiasts and families will discover trails and an endless range of options for leisure activities in the outdoors. The well-tendered winter trails and serene woodlands entice you to trek through this vast, sunny plateau on foot, on snowshoes or taking a sled along for a more comfortable descent sitting down. High-Alpine ski touring enthusiasts and cross-country fans alike are assured of snow in the Isarco Valley, making their way down the scenic slopes and along trails through the pristine whiteness before being welcomed into one of the hospitable Alpine huts and their sunny terraces.

Val di Funes/Villnösstal is the main center in the Isarco Valley for snowshoe hiking and there is an extensive and clearly sign-posted network of trails running along the foot of the spectacular Dolomites. A very magnificent hike in the valley is the trail leading up to the Funes Alpine pasture. The other paths include both relaxing walks through the valley, as well as more demanding day trips, such as that leading to Rasciesa. It is no coincidence that the quiet and unspoiled side-valleys of the Isarco Valley enjoy an excellent reputation among cross-country skiers. The 12 km long circuit leading up to Würzjoch attracts both classic and skating style skiers.

The Funes boasts 6-odd toboggan runs, meaning pure enjoyment for all the family. And following an exhilarating downhill ride, adults and youngsters alike can recharge themselves in one of the enchanting, welcoming Alpine huts and mountain shelters.

Ski touring fans will also find numerous opportunities to choose from in the Isarco Valley, leaving their imprints in the fresh snow. There are also guided tours in the Dolomites such as in the Val di Funes/Villnösstal up to Zendleser Kofel, or on the Plose.
