At the foot of the Collalto, there is the charming high-alpine mountain village of Riva di Tures.
Already very early in history, Riva di Tures used to be a popular destination for travellers. Not for nothing, as alone the position of the village at the foot of the highest mountain of the Vedrette di Ries-Aurina mountain range, the 3,436 m high Collalto. Riva di Tures is located in the Vedrette di Ries-Aurina nature park, characterised by an impressive mountain landscape. As far as mountains are concerned, 32 of the 84 three-thousanders of the Valle Aurina are located in Valle di Riva. Holidays in the mountains, that’s what you are going to experience in Riva di Tures.
About 16 km of cross-country ski slopes in classic and skating style are available round the cross-country ski centre in Riva, while for skiers, the village offers two little ski lifts. If you wish for more variety, we recommend you the Speikboden skiing area, located only a stone’s throw away. In summer, however, we highly recommend you to make a walk to the Malga die Dossi, highly recommendable are also the Rif. Vedrette and the Rif. Roma. Very popular is also the Arthur-Hartdegen trail, stretching at the foot of the Collalto. Also a famous cycling tour, the Giro delle Vedrette, passes by the village and takes you to East Tyrol, across the Passo di Gola.
Riva di Tures is also famous for its return of the cattle, as the so-called „Kiekemma“ is celebrated in the village with a huge festival.
