If you decide to go hiking in Val d'Ega, you can experience the UNESCO World Natural Heritage Dolomites with its striking mountains such as the Catinaccio and the Latemar in many different ways. Whether on leisurely walks along the alpine pastures, where the imposing mountain backdrop is visible on the horizon, or on challenging mountain tours, where you can experience the Dolomites up close and in the midst of it all.

If you want to explore the unique splendour of the region on your own, set out on the enchanting circular tour around the Rosengarten group.
