Venosta Valley benefits from its Alpine dry climate, with sun, wind and mild temperatures. One side, the valley is characterized by Alpine vegetation and the other side by sub-Alpine vegetation. From spring to late autumn, it is possible to go for walks on the sun-lit paths of the "sun mountain" Monte Sole with its unique flora.
Famous hiking paths - without significant slopes - lead along the old, typical irrigation channels
and are particularly suitable for easy walks. There is a network of family-friendly hiking trails and mountain tours in Venosta Valley, shown in the interactive Venosta Valley Card"Terra Raetica"
in order to facilitate better tour planning.
The Venosta Valley also offers many mountain tours and high-Alpine destinations for experienced mountain climbers. South Tyrolean's highest mountain peaks can be found in the Ortles-Cevedale Group. The southern foothills of the Oetztal Alps, theStelvio National Park
and the Sesvenna Group are also within easy reach.
Venosta Valley used to be an important Roman trade route and forms part of the Alpine Romanesque Road Via Claudia Augusta
. Thematic trails invite visitors to explore the region's cultural variety.
