Experiencing summer in the mountains
It’s easy to get active where nature has so much to offer as in Brixen/Bressanone. It almost doesn’t matter anymore how you want to get active, because Brixen/Bressanone and its holiday villages can offer almost everything.
Hiking and mountaineering
Those who want to spend their hiking vacation in Brixen/Bressanone can choose between plenty of possibilities: easy strolls and hikes as also more difficult hiking tours and adventurous mountaineering. Uncountable lodges and mountain huts promise indulgence and breathtaking views as reward.
Mountain bikers will find a fantastic area in Brixen/Bressanone and surroundings. The different altitudinal belts: the valley, the uplands, the alpine pastures, the peaks and the Dolomites – offer twice as much diversity and challenges without any end. Altitude and mountain pass rides, like on the Würzjoch/ Passo delle Erbe are possible as also downhill races at the Plose (2.500 m).
World of water on wonderful summer days
Those who prefer the fresh wetness rather than the mountains will be delighted in the mid-Eisacktal/Valle Isarco. The bathing lake Vahrner See/lago di Varna, the natural bathing lake in Lüsen/Luson, the water park “Acquarena” or the swimming pools in Klausen/Chiusa and Feldthurns/Velturno guarantee lots of fun. Those who prefer it fresher can enjoy the Kneipp basins at the Schalderer Bach stream/Rio Scaleres in Vahrn/Varna.
Those who like one more kick of adrenaline should fly down the valley with the parachute, raft with a rubber dinghy through the rivers or cannoning along exciting mountain torrents.
