Hotels in the area
This area is known for its nature full of contrasts, which presents an unique environmental combination, visible on all the territory between the Reschenpass and the surroundings of Merano: in fact, the mountain belt formed by Ortles - Cevedale, the Alps Ötztal and the Group Sesvenna protects the whole area from the bad weather coming from the valley.
Scattered on the hills around the town of Ciardes, lie the idyllic towns of Maragno, Castelbello-Ciardes, Lacinigo, Mont Frank, Trumsberg, Tomsberg and Juval.
Ciardes represents the ideal point to discover the Val Venosta. In the immediate surroundings there is plenty of tracks for mountain bikers, who can follow the footprints of the ancient Romans along the Via Claudia Augusta, a ride along the ancient paths, enjoy the view by the lush meadows around the mountain or the forest paths of Stelvio National Park, or follow the unique high-altitude routes up to over 3,000 meters!
And for those who prefer the peace of the valley, there is a fly-fishing along the placid banks of the river Adige.
...And with the South Tyrol winter snow, skiers, snowboarders, toboggan and ice skating lovers appear all around.
Discover the slopes always carefully prepared by the ski-arena of Ortles - Cevedale staff!
Put your skis on your shoulders for the off the track excursions and go down the slopes of the eastern Alps, the Group Sesvenna and Ötztal Alps.
Or simply let yourself be seduced by the magnificent snowy landscape.
To be seen: Castel castle, Juval Castle, the paths of the canal.
