Ahrntal Aktiv

Your outdoor experts in the Ahrntal valley/Valle di Tures

Our programmes are definitely worth your while; in fact, we would book them ourselves if we could. We take care of everything and will turn your vacation into an adventurous and unforgettable experience. What is left for you to do is enjoy, relax, and recharge your batteries. Should peace and quiet turn into boredom, we are there for you, taking you on exciting tours and adventurous excursions. It is not our aim to make you feel at home during your stay in the Ahrntal/Valle di Tures in South Tyrol - we want you to experience a once-in-a-lifetime vacation. Go on easy or more demanding bike tours with our MTB guides, follow our mountain guides to the fascinating world of glaciers and three-thousanders, or climb on the vertical rock faces of South Tyrol's amazing mountain world. Venture out into nature on your own, on one of our top-quality Scott mountain bikes or spend an afternoon of fun with your family on our high rope course. In the stunning mountain world between the Dolomites and the Zillertal Alps you have the chance to improve your biking skills in our technical training course, you can give rock climbing a try, or learn useful DIY tricks for repairing your bike. You will have a great time and learn something for life.
During the winter months, we will take you icefall climbing, on snowshoe hikes, or to try out biathlon; we will build an igloo together with you in which you will spend the night, or we might accompany you on a skiing tour.

Snowshoe Hike with Graukäse Cheese Tasting

Snowshoe Hike with Graukäse Cheese Tasting

The valerian spikenard or Alpine valerian (valeriana celtica) is a delicate flower with light blossoms. The Speikboden in the Ahrntal valley is named after this medicinal plant, which is endemic in the Eastern Alps.
