Active holidays in the South Tyrolean mountains
As relaxing a holiday in South Tyrol may be, you can also spend an active vacation in the mountains. Apart from hiking and mountain climbing, there is also a huge sports and outdoor offer, which turns every single day into a small adventure. From leisurely bicycle jaunts to mountain bike tours and extreme downhill rides: In South Tyrol, you are always in for great fun on two wheels. The tourist office Gitschberg / Val Giovo offers guided bike tours with a professional guide.
Guided hikes or climbing tours will show you the incredible alpine panorama of the Dolomites from ever new perspectives. In high ropes courses or climbing gardens, you may put your skills to the test and pump a little adrenaline into your bloodstream.
Extreme sports in South Tyrol
During a rafting tour on the wild waters of South Tyrol’ rivers you can enjoy the scenery from perspectives that remain hidden to most visitors. Not far away from Maranza, tours across the Rienza Canyon are offered, not only riding on rubber boats, but also canoeing, kayaking and canyoning. We will inform you about local tours and operators. Some people are drawn to the water and into deep gorges, while others wish to discover South Tyrol from a bird’s-eye view. Paragliding and hang-gliding are other activities offered in South Tyrol, always accompanied by professional guides and instructors. If these experiences are completely new for you, you still may embark on a tandem flight, for example, from Mount Gitschberg.
