The lovely Waalwege – the ancient irrigation channels that are an absolute highlight for families in the Val Venosta – are often accessible with pushchairs and allow kids to explore water and nature with all their senses. There are numerous family walks possible in summer with refreshments and places to stop and rest in the beautiful natural landscape, while the Etschtal Valley cycle way lets children pedal away along short stretches, practically a must in the Val Venosta, a giant paradise for cyclists! There are several themed trails around Prato allo Stelvio to discover, while the surrounding national park offers the chance to experience llama trekking. Thrill-seekers aged 6 and above can spend an action-packed day on the “Litzer Waldele” high ropes course, an undemanding way to let off steam. The pool at Prato and the Aquaforum at Laces offer fun for all the family – with many other adventures to ensure peace and quiet for parents.
In winter the ski areas of Watles and Trafoi are particularly family-friendly, while tobogganing together on the natural run at Watles or in the Sulden ski area is not to be missed. Ice-skating in the great outdoors is possible on the Reschen Lake and the natural ice rink on the Haider Lake. Gentle winter walks for the entire family are also possible through the snow-covered landscapes of the Val Venosta.
