Valdaora

In Valdaora, both in summer and winter you can enjoy direct access to the Plan de Corones hiking and skiing area located above it.

The municipality of Valdaora extends in the valley basin in the heart of the Val Pusteria, just above the town of Brunico. It is framed by the peaks of Plan de Corones, Piz da Peres and Mt. Tre Dita, here between the mountain world of the Dolomites and the Anterselva Valley. The single villages of the municipality seem to merge into each other and are characteristically called Valdaora di Sopra (Upper Valdaora), Valdaora di Mezzo (Middle Valdaora) and Valdaora di Sotto (Lower Valdaora). Sorafurcia on the slope of the Plan de Corones is the highest district and home village of the TV presenter Markus Lanz.

Valdaora is ideally connected to the Val Pusteria Railway and to the cycle path network on the Pusterbike Cycle Path: It takes you all the way to San Candido or vice versa to Brunico, Fortezza and then to the Brennero Pass or Bolzano. The family destinations are all gathered between Valdaora di Mezzo and Valdaora di Sopra, where the Kids Area Panorama stretches along the slope towards the forest: 3D archery courses, a huge air cushion and a tubing park are part of it. A walk away is the well-known Tolderhof with its Haflingers and riding school, which also offers horseback rides. In the main village of Valdaora di Sopra you can also find the longest slide in South Tyrol in the Valdaora Kids' World in the forest.

In summer and winter, the Plan de Corones can be reached from Valdaora by the lifts: The hiking and skiing area has developed into a true excursion destination that is no longer limited to hikers and skiers. At the summit, cultural highlights such as Reinhold Messner's MMM Corones and the House of Mountain Photography, the AlpiNN Food Space & Restaurant with a fantastic view from the panorama windows, and the giant swing "Skyscraper" are enthroned. Even in winter months, the museums remain open, but then the pistes of the largest skiing area in South Tyrol extend all around. From the alpine pastures, sledge runs stretch down into the valley...
