Your summer walking in the Dolomites
A holiday full of emotions
Walking in the Dolomites is not the only thing you can do on your South Tyrol holiday! The region is a paradise for sports of all kinds. How about rafting on river Isarco, or paragliding lessons if you feel particularly adventurous? You can also discover your surroundings riding on the back of a horse!
Hikes and walks
Close to Hotel Wieser and Vipiteno you can find many hiking areas like Monte Cavallo, Racines, Ridanna or Ladurns. Since all of these are also skiing areas in winter, you can have the cableways take you to the top and then wander around to look for alpine meadows, crystal clear lakes and mountain flowers.
Some examples for hikes starting directly at the hotel:
- Castles in Campo di Trens: Hike for about 11 km through Campo di Trens and visit the two Castles: Reifenstein and Sprechenstein.
- The life of the bee: Here you can walk along the sunny paths of Freienfeld. Along the way, the enormous importance of bees for agriculture and humans as a whole explained by illustrative panels. You can learn about the millennial relationship between the bee and humans, and, of course, the life and organization of the bees.
- Our tip for families: Pleasant family hike from Stilfes through the forest to Rofisboden. You will find playgrounds and meadows with barbecue in the middle of the forest. This pleasant hike, which lasts no longer than 45 minutes is also best suited for strollers.
You can expect a lot of information about hiking, but of course you can ask us as your host at any time for further tips and hiking suggestions.
Bicycle and MTB
South Tyrol is also very popular with cyclists: you can go on a tour of the Dolomite passes or explore the region on the countless well equipped cycle tracks. On the "Brennero-Bolzano" track you can combine sports and culture stopping in one of the medieval cities on the road like Vipiteno, Bressanone or Chiusa. Our Hotel Wieser in Vipiteno lies directly on the track: have a break and enjoy the relaxing atmosphere, we are looking forward to meeting you!
