Tips for activities and sight-seeing in Alta Badia

In Alta Badia you will find a variety of landscapes: wide, unspoilt meadows and rocky paths through the Dolomites. There are many historical sites that you can visit and there is a wide range of outdoor activities for you to choose from. Here is a brief list of the best activities and the most beautiful places that you should not miss during your stay in Corvara.

Snowshoeing in Alta Badia

Fresh air, the sound of snow crunching under your snowshoes, shadows cast across the thick covering of snow, the silence and the Dolomites glowing in the pale moonlight: a snowshoe-hike is bound to turn into an unforgettable experience.

Boulder Centre in Corvara

In the unlikely event of rain, there is always the Boulder Centre in Corvara to visit. Let your children roam around freely here, whilst you perfect your climbing technique. The Centre is due to open in summer 2018.

The biotope lake in Corvara

Lie back on the lawn, let your feet dangle in the water and feel the sun on your face, maybe with a good book to enjoy. You can relax properly by this lovely pond which is easily reached on foot from our hotel.

Shopping in Alta Badia

There’s always a surprise waiting for you in the many shops and craft outlets in Alta Badia. We recommend you go on a shopping spree in the centre of San Cassiano, or Corvara on days when the streets are closed to traffic, as well as Pederoa.

Museum Ladin Ćiastel de Tor

This is a small but excellent museum explaining the history of the Ladin population and Alta Badia. The museum is housed in a historically important castle of Alta Badia in San Martino in Badia. The Museum Ladin Ursus ladinicus (Ladin Cave Bear Museum) in the centre of San Cassiano is also worth exploring.

First word war galleries 5 Torri

The tunnels which wind their way through the hillsides of Lagazuoi, the trenches at Sass de Stria and the open air museum “5 Torri” bear important testimony to the front line where Italians and Austrians met in combat during the First World War.

Christmas markets Bruneck city

The nearest large town reachable from Alta Badia is Brunico/Bruneck. There’s a wonderful town centre and a castle with a museum devoted to the mountain people. In December, this town in the heart of the Puster Valley is lit up by the Christmas markets which are held here.

The Pralongiá plateau in the Dolomites

The broad plateau above the village of Corvara is ideal for extended walks. You can also go on fabulous tours by mountain bike here. In summer, when the meadows are covered in countless flowers, this spot is simply enchanting.

Armentara meadows in Alta Badia

The mountain Sasso Croce rises majestically over the valley of Alta Badia. Two further treasures are hidden at the foot of this mountain – the church of Santa Croce, a centre of pilgrimage which is also accessible on skis, and the Armentara meadows.

The Edelweiss Valley in Colfosco

Wonderful to explore on skis in the winter, equally rewarding in summer as you can climb to the summit of the Sassongher from here. Discover the impressive natural heritage of Puez-Odle/Puez-Geisler Nature Park from the Edelweiss Valley.

Lech Vërt in the natural park of Fanes-Senes-Braies

This is the park of Ladin legends, the realm of the Fanes, with its clear waters and enchanting Alpine lakes. A walk in the Fanes-Senes-Braies/Fanes-Sennes-Prags Nature Park is an absolute must during your stay in Alta Badia.

The Valley of Mills - Val di Murins in Longiarú

The tiny village of Longiarú lies in a side valley from the Alta Badia valley and harbours two absolute pearls of Ladin culture: the Val di Morins (Valley of Mills) and the “Viles”, the hamlets of Seres and Miscì, bear witness to farming life in the valleys of South Tyrol.

The Pütia from Passo delle Erbe/Würzjoch

This Alpine pass at the foot of the mighty Sass de Putia/Peitlerkofel, which links the Alta Badia valley with the Val di Funes/Villnösstal, derives its German name from Ladin “Börz”. The Würzjoch is an absolute must, whatever the time of year, either for hiking, for refreshments in a mountain hut, or just for a scenic snapshot with a guaranteed picture postcard motif.
