The mountains of the Valle Isarco offer something for everyone – even some of the higher summits are not difficult to climb and are thus the perfect challenge for all the family, with great views from the top. For those with smaller children there are several trails along the Valle Isarco suited to pushchairs , while families with a thirst for knowledge will enjoy the exciting themed paths such as the South Tyrolean Milk Trail up to the Fanes Alm or the Geotrails in Tiso, while the Woody Walk is a walking adventure! The Mountaincarts on the Plose mountain also offer exciting downhill fun, while the valley has superb children’s playgrounds and mini thrill-seekers can go wild on the high ropes courses at Vipiteno/Sterzing and in the Villnöss Valley. Families can cool off in the outdoor and indoor pools at Vipiteno/Sterzing, the Alpinpool at Maranza and the Acquarena with its mega-pool and eight water slides in Bressanone/Brixen. The Vahrnersee Lake and the natural bathing pond at Lüsen offer refreshing relaxation in the great outdoors, ideal for parents and children alike.

The Valle Isarco is a true family paradise in winter, with numerous toboggan runs, winter walks and ice-skating facilities. The family ski areas of Ladurns, Rosskopf, Gischtberg Jochtal, Feldthurns and Ratschings-Jaufen ensure safe skiing fun for smaller beginners and grown-up lovers of winter sports.
