The Val d’Ultimo offers its own ski area. Successful and efficient, varied and fun: the Schwemmalm. But not only this, Val d’Ultimo has a lot to offer to those who love nature, in its wild landscapes and immersed in silence.
Ski touring on the Orecchio della Lepre, or Cima degli Olmi, Cima Stübele, Cima Trenta or Cima Sternai. A bit difficult to choose…
Cross-country skiing in the panoramic track that from Pracupola crosses the villages of Santa Gertrude and San Nicolò for a tour of 25 km.
In summer the Val d’Ultimo becomes the starting point for many hikes, some of which are also suitable for children. One that we recommend is the hike to the Gaulschluch Gorge, near Lana, at the end of the valley. A natural beauty easily reachable by all, where you can admire steep cliffs of porphyry, gneiss and granite. Over the years, the Valsura stream has carved out this gorge, which every summer becomes a small natural refuge from the heat of the season.
From Pracupola starts the Alta Via della Val d’Ultimo, a route of several days that will take you to face the altitudes of the area with breathtaking views.
Fascinating and that will leave your children speechless is the path of the larch trees, starting from Santa Gertrude.
For trekking, however, do not forget that this valley is part of the Stelvio National Park, with the peaks of the Ortles group all to conquer!
The refuges of this valley are authentic jewels, the farmsteads show off their traditional shingle roof and in every respectable restaurant you can taste the typical dishes of South Tyrol. Remember, however, to make the “Paarl” a typical wholemeal bread, which you will find here in Val d’Ultimo.
