Trekking & MTB holidays in summer & skiing in San Vigilio – Kronplatz in winter
Ready … Steady … Go! … It’s time for adventure!
Pack your rucksack and head off into the mountains, tackle challenging trails on your mountain bike, or ski down the perfectly groomed slopes of Kronplatz Mountain – the Kronplatz holiday region offers adrenalin rushes in all sizes, and outdoor fun for everyone! Those who love art and culture will also find plenty to thrill their hearts. Did you know, for example, that the Ladin language is still spoken in St. Vigil? Ladin is a Romance language from the Rhaeto-Romance subgroup, and has only survived in a very few valleys – so it’s a true linguistic rarity.
Ski in, Ski out
This is the ultimate location for your skiing holidays! We’re located right by the ski slope and the Kronplatz ski lifts, in South Tyrol’s number one ski resort. This resort offers 119 kilometres of ski slopes, 32 modern ski lifts, five black slopes (“The Black Five”) and – our absolute highlight – direct access to the famous Sellaronda circuit. Away from the slopes, you’ll also find plenty of interesting and entertaining things to do – for example, you could visit the MMM Corones or LUMEN, the new museum for mountain photography. Another sight worth seeing is the Concordia peace bell.
More ski slopes please!
One ski resort isn’t enough for you? You want more action, or you’re looking for something special? We’ve got everything you need: 6 hours, 30 kilometres of ski slopes, 4 Dolomite passes – the notorious Sellaronda circuit!
More snow please!
Away from the slopes, a completely different world awaits you: unspoiled winder landscapes, idyllic trails, delightful cross-country skiing trails, serene and majestic mountains and an abundance of snow.
More adventure please!
Have you ever been sledging with huskies? No?! Then now’s your chance to enjoy this special experience – in Antermoia, on the edge of the Puez-Geisler nature reserve. Guided by experts, the huskies will draw your sledge through the idyllic winter landscape. This truly special experience is suitable for families with children aged three and above.
Into nature …
Crystal clear mountain lakes, meadows filled with colourful flowers, stunning mountain peaks and a feeling of light-hearted freedom … Nearly 70 % of the municipality of St. Vigil lies within the boundaries of the Fanes-Sennes-Prags Nature Park, which is the third largest nature reserve in South Tyrol. Hikers in St. Vigil and the surrounding area can not only enjoy absolute hiking classics such as the Seekofel, Lake Prags or the famous “Drei Zinnen” peaks, but also lesser-known beauty spots away from the beaten paths.
For avid mountain bikers
The Kronplatz holiday region and the surrounding nature parks offer an amazing 600 kilometres’ worth of trails for mountain bike enthusiasts. These include classic trails for “Sunday” cyclists, routes that wind through the various towns in the region, and more ambitious trails through the Dolomites themselves. There are also numerous off-road challenges. Fancy some freeriding and downhill fun? Then come to Kronplatz Mountain and try the new Piz-de-Places trail or the Furcia trail on Herrenstein mountain. Both are guaranteed to get your pulse racing! Mountain bikes and protective gear are available for hire at the foot of Kronplatz Mountain.
More adrenalin please!
This challenge is not for the faint-hearted – and even brave hearts may well flutter! Imagine clinging tightly to a steel rope and flying downwards at 80 kmh … 100 m above safe ground! But what are we talking about? The longest zipline in Europe, of course – which just happens to be found in St. Vigil. Do you dare?!
