Alpine Pearls

The pleasure of sustainable holidays

Out of consideration for environmental and climate protection

Do you think that it is time to do a couple of things in a more concious, elaborate and responsible way? Come and see during your next holidays how Soft Mobility can positively effect humans and nature. The "Alpine Pearls" stand for sustainability, climate protection and the highest quality of tourism.

Alpine Pearls – eco-friendly holidays

The Alpine Pearls Association offers environmentally friendly, carefree holidays in gorgeous areas in the Alps. All Pearls of the Alps stand together for soft mobility and they guarantee relaxing holidays with an eco-friendly footprint. As a Pearl of the Alps, Funes/Villnöss Valley stands for sustainable tourism and makes every effort to protect the climate and preserve the environment. It offers unforgettable experiences among one of the most beautiful Dolomite areas.

Power supply and water power

In times of climate change, energy costs and economic crisis an independent energy supply is of fundamental importance. The consumed energy of Funes/Villnöss Valley derived exclusively from local, renewable resources such as water, wood and sun. Three hydroelectric power plants, two district heating plants and a photovoltaic array ensure a self-sufficient energy supply of our valley. Thanks to the electrification of the alpine huts and the fibre optic wiring, we meet the highest economic demands.

Soft Mobility

Experience an alternative holiday by choosing eco-friendly solutions for your mobility. It doesn’t matter if you prefer a relaxing holiday or an active one in the mountains. Visit valleys and cities of our beautiful holiday area with Mobilcard Alto Adige/Südtirol, plan excursions with different starting and destination points, and just enjoy the scenery. Mobilcard allows you to make full use of South Tyrol's Integrated Public Transport network.

Respect the mountains
