Olperl’s Adventure Park

The new nature park with its circular trail on the Mount Elmo in the Alta Val Pusteria valley offers fun for the whole family.

A real adventure trip into the world of Olperl and his friends awaits you at the mountain station of the Monte Elmo Cable Car, which can be reached from Sesto or Versciaco. There Olperl's Adventure Park - "Olperls Erlebnispark" in German, "Parco Avventura di Olperl" in Italian - is located. The 1.5 km long circular path, also suitable for prams, offers 10 different stations dedicated to the alpine fauna. This special adventure park tells its own story: Once upon a time a mysterious creature with big luminous eyes lived in the mountains of the Upper Val Pusteria. It had great fun to make jokes and to scare the people living in the surroundings with its whistles.

A real "Springgingl" (mischievous goblin) or "Olperl", how it was called by local farmers. It is said that still today Olperl lives in the Sesto Dolomites, a great fried of the local wildlife and enthusiast of wild berries and other fruits. And still today it loves to scare the people passing by. Also the highest located barefoot path of the Dolomites is dedicated to it. It can be found at 2,150 m a.s.l. and awaits you with soft moss, cool spring water and natural materials to stimulate the circulation and revitalise the feet. Furthermore, you can enjoy the gorgeous view on the Sesto Dolomites.
