Hiking & Walking
Villabassa, the Alta Pusteria and the Dolomites invite you to all kinds of walks, Nordic walks and hikes. In the valley you can walk on flat walks, paths across alpine meadows lead to serviced huts and pastures with viewpoints. You don’t have to be an extreme mountain climber to experience the Dolomites!

Cycling & Mountain biking
It’s not all hiking and walking, we have another tip for you: Discover the Three Peaks Country on two wheels; with bicycles and mountain bikes through the Dolomites.
Cycle on the valley cycle path to Rio Pusteria or to Lienz in East Tyrol - and return by train. Stop en route to enjoy the view and relax over a cup of coffee. Cycling fans conquer passes and there are steep climbs for mountain bikers. Whichever way you choose: Cycling and mountain biking in Three Peaks country is stunningly beautiful.

Climbing paradise Dolomites: Some of the most beautiful and well-known via ferratas of the Alps await you in Alta Pusteria - Three Peaks Country. Cling to the rockface, pull yourself up and enjoy the unique panoramic views.
The advantage of indoor climbing is that you can enjoy it all year round. The Alta Pusteria boasts indoor two climbing centers.

Winter hikes & Snowshoe tours
