In the west of South Tyrol, the Val Venosta stretches from Naturno near Merano to the Resia Pass, where the Adige river rises and a steeple towers in the waters of Lake Resia. Hardly could a holiday area be more varied: Apple orchards and apricot trees on the one side, rough mountain peaks and glaciers on the other side, the most famous of which is of course King Ortles (3,905 m a.s.l.).
On discovery journey in the Stelvio National Park, a walk along the centuries-old Waalweg trails along ancient irrigation canals, a coffee in one of the historic villages of the valley, or a visit to the Monte Maria Monastery - the choice is yours. Snow-sure skiing areas in quiet alpine valleys such as Solda, far away from hustle and bustle, complete the offer in the winter season.
