Hiking in the Dolomites, UNESCO World Heritage Site

The Dolomites are one of the most beautiful mountain areas in the world. Impressive rock massifs such as the Sassolungo, the rugged Geisler, the jagged peaks of the Puez and Cirgruppe and large alpine meadows in full bloom make up a varied mountain landscape. Leisurely walks in the valley, exciting themed and cultural trails, promising alpine and high altitude hikes, a more challenging summit tour or even a via ferrata: the Dolomites around St. Christina can be explored for everyone, in hiking boots or on a mountain bike!

Antermejes Chalet

From the alpine hike to the summit

Some hikers love the walks in the valley, such as the farm hike, which leads past our Chalet Antermejes and the traditional farms of the valley. Modern lifts take you to the top of the Puez-Geisler nature park, where well-marked hiking trails cross the alpine meadows. Breathtaking views offer the Langkofel-Circuit, the hikes to the Col Raiser, to the Seceda or to the Monte Pic (Pitschberg). For families, the Monte Pana adventure trail in St. Christina offers unforgettable holiday experiences: wood-carved horses for climbing, resting oases with hammocks or the water station with a picnic area make children's eyes shine. The Dolomites also attract climbers from all over the world. The climbing routes on the Cir peak, the Sass Rigais, the Sella towers or the Oskar-Schuster-Steig on the Plattkofel are among the classic dream tours. Whether you want to go for a leisurely hike or are looking for a mountain adventure, the hiking possibilities are as diverse as the Dolomites!

Mountain biking at the foot of the 3,000-meter peaks

Around 30 trails between 700 and 2,500 meters, at the foot of the Dolomites around St. Christina and on the Alpe di Siusi: no wonder that Val Gardena is also very popular with mountain bikers! A well-marked network of cycling paths runs through the alpine pastures in the Dolomites. Ideally, it proves that the lifts often lead to the starting points of the trails. And of course, they transport your bike! In addition to the bike routes in the high mountains, there are the numerous mountain passes for mountain bike holidays in Val Gardena. And those who prefer to cycle in the valley: the Val Gardena valley connects the main towns and is also suitable for mountain bike beginners. The route runs on quiet side roads, partly on the former railway line, and directly past our Chalet Antermejes. Do not miss the numerous cycling events such as the "Sella Ronda Hero" or the popular "Sellaronda Bike Day"!

Horseback riding
