Soak up the sun
Active summer freshness on your summer holiday in the Dolomites
The sun is hot and the mountains cool, which is precisely what makes a summer holiday in the Dolomites so fun. Experience the contrasts of the Alps. Blue skies, the red Alpine glow and starry nights. With the climbing wall right in front of you and views that reach across to the horizon. An exciting active holiday that does you good and refuels you with energy. You alone decide how to spend your summer holiday in the Dolomites and which stories of summer adventures you’ll be telling when you get home.
Step by step: hiking
Hiking through the Alps – spectacular hiking routes take you to the Maria Saalen pilgrimage site, the Astjoch mountain or along the Camino de Santiago pilgrimage route. Breathe in fresh mountain air on the Kronplatz and the Wieseralm mountain pasture. Stroll through the shadows of the gigantic Dolomites and the Fanes-Sennes-Prags Nature Park to the Three Peaks.
See it all from your saddle: cycling
Cycle to Brixen or Lienz – there are plenty of excellent-quality cycle paths to sample on your summer holiday in the Dolomites. And come back by train in the evening. Pedal through the Ahrntal valley to the Show Mine of Prettau or snake your way through the beautiful cycle paths through the Puster Valley. We can also lend you electric bikes to make the ride easier for you.
Power and endurance: mountain biking
Are you brave enough to take the steep downhill trails on the Kronplatz? Do you have the strength to power up the rugged terrain of the Dolomites? Or the endurance to make it around the Braies Lake, Glittner See lake or the Würzjoch mountain? And then regain your strength with a selection of South Tyrolean specialities? This is just a taste of what active holidays in South Tyrol have to offer.
Courage and concentration: climbing
Climbing and mountaineering are precisely what the Dolomites were made for. Train at the indoor climbing centres in Bruneck and Brixen. Maintain your balance at KronAction Outdoor & Fun Park. Take your courage and concentration to the limits on your summer holiday in the Dolomites as you come up against the steep faces in the Höhlensteintal valley, the climbing garden in the Rienztal valley and the via ferrata on the Speikboden mountain.
Cool refreshment: swimming
Swimming in the summits – the lake in Gais is a family-friendly swimming spot. Cool off in the spring water of lake Issinger Weiher. Have fun and enjoy the CRON4 spa paradise. The indoor and outdoor swimming pools offer cool refreshment on hot days or after a tough leg of your hiking or cycling route.
Experience spectacular thrills on your summer holiday in the Dolomites while doing archery at the Kron Arc Adventure Park, rafting and canyoning on the Ahr or a paragliding tandem flight through the sky. Test your dexterity on the zip wire, on a horse-riding journey or with golf. Seek victory over your opponents in laser tag in Reischach.
