Winter active vacation
The Ahrntal valley is an ideal destination for winter hikes. With a pair of reliable, waterproof shoes and the right clothing, you can explore the valley's many hiking trails, whether you are looking for winter sun or want to take a more challenging tour. Don't forget to pack items in your backpack that will nourish both your body and your spirit and make for a fulfilling hiking experience.
The Ahrntal valley has four skiing areas with a total of 74 kilometres of slopes and unique special features. These include the Speikboden mountain railway with the greatest difference in altitude, the Klausberg, the Rein in Taufers/Riva di Tures ski area and the Weißenbach/Rio Bianco ski area, which is characterised by its compact but smart design.
These ski areas are also suitable for families and children to learn how to ski. Perfectly groomed slopes, fun parks and much more await you. In addition, the Kronplatz, one of the most modern skiing areas in South Tyrol, is nearby.
The Ahrntal offers cross-country skiers a special experience with a total of 51 kilometres of well-groomed trails. From December to April, the trails in Rein in Taufers, Mühlwald/Lappach, Kasern and Weißenbach offer guaranteed snow and excellent conditions.
Particularly noteworthy is the sunny Kasern trail, which benefits from plenty of sun and natural snow and does not require artificial snow. Along the trails you will find numerous huts that provide delicious food and warm drinks for a successful ski trip.
Snowshoeing & winter hikes, ski tours
Climb the mountain on touring skis and enjoy the unspoilt nature on the way back down to the valley, or ski down the groomed slopes at your own pace. However, for activities such as snowshoeing, winter hiking and ski touring, it is important to be aware of the avalanche danger and to heed the warning signs and notices along your chosen route. We encourage our guests to always be vigilant and follow the safety guidelines to avoid unnecessary risks.
Enjoy an exciting sledding adventure with your friends or family in the picturesque Ahrntal valley. Huts along the sledding runs and sledding rentals can be found throughout the region. For families, the illuminated sledding run in Weißenbach offers a gentle ascent, while the more challenging route from Speikboden to Weißenbach rewards a two-hour ascent with a thrilling 7 km descent.
Another exciting option is the 5 km sled run on the Klausberg. Get ready for an unforgettable sledding experience in the Ahrntal valley.
An alpine climber's paradise, the Ahrntal attracts climbers of all levels with breathtaking icefalls and the Angerer Ice Climbing Garden. The region is a top destination for ice climbers, with experienced professionals on site offering insider tips, equipment and guided tours to the most beautiful ice falls to ensure an unforgettable experience.
