In the heart of the Dolomites, about 10 km from Bolzano, summer begins in May in the Val d’Ega valley, also called Eggental.

A winter wonderland that is a delight in summer

If in the winter this is a popular ski area that delights lovers of downhill and cross-country skiing as well as snowshoeing, with the reawakening of nature and its colours Carezza and Obereggen become worlds of entertainment for those who love walking or bike excursions. Between the Catinaccio and Latemar Dolomite peaks you are projected into adventures such as swimming in high.altitude lakes, horseback riding in the breathtaking South Tyrolean scenery, and trekking with llamas and alpacas.

Mountain trails for walkers and cyclists

Walking enthusiasts will find 500 kms of hiking routes and four via ferrata old railway lines to explore in the Val d’Ega: a world studded with mountain huts and high-altitude refuges. Sinuous trails and mountain passes, valley descents and climbs that challenge even the smoothest pedalling, are a huge draw for both mountain bike fans and those who prefer the softer approach of the e-bike.

A green destination par excellence

From the first rays of spring to the last of the autumn leaves, the Val d'Ega provides specialized facilities and comprehensive support to cyclists, including rentals, schools, MTB guides, bike hotels, guided MTB tours, bike parks, and bike routes. Among the many advantages of the Val d'Ega, a green destination par excellence that strives to reduce the environmental impact of tourism, is the ability to forget about the car entirely with the Guest Pass which allows free and unlimited use of public transport throughout South Tyrol for seven days.
