Luson

Luson, located in a side valley of the Valle Isarco, is a paradise for those who love active holidays.

A hikers’ paradise, this is how the municipality of Luson, located at 972 m in a side valley of the Valle Isarco, could be described best. Luson has got 1,540 inhabitants and comprises a series of villages that are mainly located on the right side of the valley: Croce, Huben, Monte, Valletta, Pezzè, Villa and Ronco. The parish church of Luson is dedicated to S. Giorgio and boasts a baptismal font of the 14th century as well as three striking wooden altars. Interesting from a historical point of view is the Mairhof at the entrance of the village, worth seeing is also the Stricker show mill.

Luson is an outdoor gym for those who love to spend their holidays under the open sky. The Alpe di Luson pasture, the awesome alpine meadows round the Sasso Putia, a sunrise tour to the top of the Sasso Putia or a trip to the Alpe di Rodengo are only some of the possibilities Luson offers. After a day in the mountains round Luson, we recommend you to make a refreshing jump into the cool waters of the natural bathing lake of Luson, open from 10 am to 8 pm. Horse riding lessons and the paragliding school Wasserkuppe make the summer activity programme complete.

However, also the winter season is in no way inferior to the summer season: a ski lift for beginners and an ice skating ground can for example be found in the village. Charming destinations for winter hikes in the great outdoors, however, are the alpine pastures of the Malga Kreuzwiese, the chapel Pianer Kapelle, the pastures of Compaccia, the Cima Lasta and the Alpe di Rodengo. If you prefer cross-country skiing, there are the trails at the Alpe di Luson, Alpe di Rodengo, the panoramic run of Luson and the ski trail at Passo delle Erbe. By the way, a ski shuttle takes you to the nearby skiing area of the Plose. Of course Luson also offers the possibility of tobogganing. To make the offer complete, there is an ice tower for those who love the thrill of ice climbing.

Our tip: a mountain bike tour or a tour with your motorbike to the Passo delle Erbe, a mountain pass that connects the Valle Isarco to the Val Badia. From this pass you can enjoy a breathtaking view on the rock faces of the mighty Sasso Putia.
