Holidays in our marvellous and unique valley on the sunny side of the Zillertal Alps
Ahrntal valley is the northernmost side valley in South Tyrol and covers an area of 630km². More than 80 mountains over 3000m in altitude tower above this picturesque valley rich in history.
Right in the midst of the Rieserferner-Ahrn / Vedrette di Ries-Aurina Nature Park, where mountains try to vie with each other for height, visitors are fascinated by steep slopes, dense forests, lonely peaks, and wild waters. Mountain lakes, streams, the wild Aurino-Ahr River, and roaring waterfalls – the water of the valley bears the power of the mountains.
In an open area and with an open heart the main village Sand in Taufers/Campo Tures receives its visitors at the entrance to the valley but then suddenly withdraws behind Taufers Castle. Massive, like a giant block of stone with several towers, it stands there, the medieval fortress, inspires 70.000 visitors every year.
Thanks to its stunning mountain scenery with 80 peaks higher than 3,000m, the Ahrntal valley is an absolute top destination both in summer and in winter.
A natural beauty with four ski areas with 75 kilometres of ski-runs that offer guaranteed snow and an unforgettable panorama. Glide through bottomless powder snow traversing seemingly endless slopes... 4 cross-country skiing trails, 7 toboggan runs and some beautiful walks and snowshoe-hikes in the snow await you.
The Ahrntal valley in summer - a heaven for hikers with unique peaks and a breathtaking backdrop. A world of wonders, relaxing with friends, constantly discovering new experiences, in the mountains, under the sun. A natural jewel between majestic alpine glaciers and lush mountain pastures.
Enjoy the stunning beauty of the Ahrntal valley. Forget the stress and strains of everyday life breathe freely in Italy’s only healing caves in Prettau/Predoi! Listen to the sound of the wind rustling the leaves, cool your feet in the refreshing waters of a fast flowing mountain stream. Simply come and be, forget everyday life, dare to try something else and discover new ways ...
