Val Senales

Picturesque villages such as Certosa, Madonna di Senales and Vernago belong to the Val Senales, where the majestic glacier rises.

At the head of the Val Senales, which branches off from Naturno, there is the valley station of the Val Senales Glacier Cable Cars, taking winter sports enthusiasts in the skiing area on the glacier where you can ski from autumn to late spring. Those walking on foot may take a look at the world from above from the Iceman Oetzi Peak, the new viewing platform at 3,212 m a.s.l.

From time to time, in the valley the past becomes alive, as there are some customs that are still in use: Like several centuries ago, in June the sheep of the valley are moved across the Italian border to the alpine pastures of the Vent Valley, where they have always spent summertime. In this area, more precisely on the Similaun Glacier, in 1991 Oetzi, the Iceman, was found. The archeoParc Val Senales museum, adventure weeks and an Alpine marathon are dedicated to the glacial mummy.
