Alpe di Siusi
a sunny walking paradise
Blooming Alpine meadows, quaint mountain huts and the spectacle of the Dolomites, a UNESCO Natural Heritage site – if you love the mountains, you will be hard pressed to find a better destination for your summer holidays!
Walking on the Alpe di Siusi
Walking on the Alpe di Siusi plateau
Europe’s largest high plateau is a walking paradise offering everything from child-friendly footpaths to sporty trails and challenging mountain climbs. Whichever route you choose, the view of Mt. Sciliar will accompany you all the way. Starting directly from our farm, you can reach this iconic mountain on foot in approximately three hours. Naturally, there are also shorter and easier options, like the one-hour walk to the Tuffalm hut. If you want to visit the Alpe di Siusi plateau but don’t relish the idea of an uphill trek, there is a lift that will take you there in no time.
Cycling on the Alpe di Siusi trails
The Sciliar plateau is also a perfect destination for those who like pedal pushing. There are a number of cycle paths leading around the villages of Fiè, Siusi and Castelrotto, including some routes extending across the Alpe di Siusi plateau. Punchy climbs alternate with gentle ups and downs, ensuring the right amount of variety. There is even a cycle path that leads right past our farm. So, saddle up and enjoy your ride!
Bathing in Lake Fiè
Lake Fiè is an idyllic tarn situated in the municipality of Fiè allo Sciliar. It is one of the most beautiful natural swimming lakes in all South Tyrol. The southern part hosts a biotope, while the northern shore offers guests a jetty and a sunbathing lawn for swimming and relaxing on a fine summer day. The water is of excellent quality, and the tarn is just a 20-minute walk from our farm.
A dip in the pool
If you prefer to refresh yourself in a pool, there’s another option: the Telfen open-air swimming pool in Castelrotto, just a few kilometres away. With its solar-heated water and expansive lawn, it offers the perfect space for relaxation. There is also a paddling pool and a play area where children can have fun.
The Alpe di Siusi Running Park
Every year, international marathon runners gather on the Alpe di Siusi plateau for their altitude training. The 20 panoramic tracks across the plateau or around the villages in the Sciliar area attract plenty of amateur runners, too. With various lengths and degrees of difficulty, there’s something to suit every taste.
