Excursions- and hiking tours at the holiday region Velturno


Exciting holidays for the whole family with a variety of leisure activities in the Dolomites

On our sunny plateau there are quite a few excursion and hiking possibilities. Velturno is reachable in app. 30-40 minutes following a hiking path. You will also be impressed by a walk to the monastery of Säben. The Dürer town of Chiusa with its angled alleys and closely built house lines is reachable in app. 25 minutes along a nice promenade. To right mountain hikers we recommend the Latzfonser Kreuz (Europe’s highest place of pilgrimage) or the Radlsee Hut (app. 4 hours starting from our farmhouse).
