The diverse areas surrounding the Ötztal Alps, the Ortler Group and Sesvenna Group is an attraction for active holiday goers and families year round, and tailor-made for an active holiday in the Upper Venosta Valley.

Hiking, mountain climbing, bicycling and mountain biking on new paths – that is summer in the Upper Venosta Valley holiday area. A very compact, well-maintained and well-signposted network of trails for bikers, recreational cyclists and hikers with many places to take a break runs through the Upper Venosta Valley; also along the mountain refuge huts and alpine pastures high above.

Active vacationers in Upper Venosta Valley discover new paths along the irrigation channel paths of Monte Sole mountain, but also on mountain tours in the Ötztal Alps, the Sesvenna group or Ortles group and on multi-day hikes like the Venosta Valley High Mountain Trail.

Fishing and paragliding, enjoyment in the sport zone SportWell, and archery on a high-alpine 3D panorama-course, make for a very special summer holiday experience in Venosta.

The Family Ski Area Watles in the sunny Upper Venosta Valley provides skiers with excellent infrastructure, groomed slopes and huts with sun terraces. The region also offers winter walking trails and ski touring in the Ötztal Alps, the Ortler region and in the Stelvio National Park, as well as ice skating rinks, sledging runs and romantic horse-drawn carriage rides through the forests. Fans of Nordic ski sport will enjoy the Center for Cross-Country Skiing: sight of numerous international competitions.

An evening visit to the sauna and the fitness room at the Malles sport center Sportwell will get tired muscles regenerated for the next day. Evenings in the Sportwell can also be rounded-off with a bowling game or tennis match.
