Summer holidays in the DolomitesYour active vacation in South Tyrol
Summer vacation means summer feeling – and the Dolomites invite you to be active!
Powerful like the summer, vitality throughout the day. The Sciliar area is ideal for mountain biking and hiking. The lush green of the meadows creates a stark contrast with the white giants of the Dolomites, the so-called “pale mountains”. All around Castelrotto, you’ll find marvellous walking trails offering heavenly panoramic views. Who would not be tempted to spend the entire summer vacation hiking? Walking on scenic valley paths, alpine or mountain trails, while the impressive rocky giants follow you at every step. Don’t forget to bring good shoes and sunglasses! A fresh alternative is offered by the outdoor pool in Castelrotto – enjoy the pure summer feeling! Mountain biking, Nordic walking or horseback riding, everything is possible. Even rising into the sky – but beware: Paragliding in the Sciliar area is addictive! An active holiday in South Tyrol is an experience to remember forever.
By the way, if you wish to take a break and simply indulge in the “dolce far niente” – that is, sweet idleness – in your apartment at the Residence Diamant you may wonderfully relax!
