Hotels in the area
Val Senales extends from Naturns heading north. The road is steep and full of bends, it is almost beyond belief that in a few kilometers you will reach one of the most beautiful valleys at high altitudes in the Alps, where foxes and rabbits kiss each other good night and traditions are still part of everyday life.
Visiting a place rich in tradition does not mean finding himself deep merged in the old South Tyrol. The exact opposite. From the resort of Maso Corto the cableway leads up to the Senales glacier, where it is located the highest altitude hotel in Europe, the slopes offer a breathtaking view of the mountain and the ski resort is at 3200 m altitude. And there is more. At the beginning of the 90s, in fact, here the Ötzi mummy was found, a man buried for 6000 years in ice. For those interested, at the Archeopark Senales several excursions are organized to the excavation site. In the valley below, the alpine farms seem to be mixed with modern houses and hotels: an illusion that you'll love.
- Winter sports: The glacier ski area guarantees abundant snow and offers wonderful slopes and a Freestyle-Park
- Trips in the nature: e.g. at the Texel Group or at the Vernagter Lake
- Excursion in the „Archeopark“ – To find out more about Ötzi, that was found at the Schnals glacier
