The holiday region offers fantastic holidays all year round... lasting, unforgettable memories included!
The valley at the gateway to the Dolomites
From the Latemar Group to the legendary Catinaccio/Rosengarten and the Schlern mountain group: The Val d'Ega/Eggental has fantastic mountains and peaks that should also be enjoyed at sunset. When then the mountains shine in bright red, during the so-called "Alpenglow". The peaks and towers of the Dolomites spread timelessly and beautifully around the Val d'Ega/Eggental.
One of the most popular destinations in the Val d'Ega/Eggental is Lake Carezza, at 1,550 metres above sea level. The crystal clear, blue lake with the Latemar mountain group in the background offers an unforgettable view.
Hiking, biking, skiing
Already at the end of April, when the mountain meadows of the Val d'Ega/Eggental are like a sea of flowers, the first hikers start out. More than 530 kilometres of marked hiking paths meander through and around the Catinaccio/Rosengarten-Latemar Group, making it the densest network of paths in South Tyrol. Climbing routes and alpine tours round off the hiking trails and those on who prefers to use two wheels will have a tough choice: in fact, there are 800 km of mountain cycle paths.
Public transport is well developed in the valley, which is also why a car-free holiday in the Val d'Ega/Eggental is becoming increasingly popular.
With the two ski areas Carezza Dolomites and Obereggen, winter lovers will find everything they need: 90 km of ski slopes, 100 km of cross-country ski trails, snow parks, toboggan runs and diverse hiking paths amidst the snow-covered landscapes.
