Today’s special: fresh air and

a dream panorama!

During the summer, with the Racines-Giovo cableway, you can reach the vast meadows extending from Passo Giovo to the end of the Racines valley. Along the numerous trails, suitable for easy excursions, there are many cozy Alpine summer pastures for your rest and refreshment. Proceeding along the trails, you can climb up to the crests and peaks bordering Val Racines. There is a large variety of itineraries for memorable excursions in the crystal-clear air, to admire the vast panorama and to enjoy tasty dishes of the local Alto Adige cuisine.


In June 2012 a new adventure park had open its doors! An evocative ring route with numerous original attractions has been designed starting from the cableway uphill station; here adults and small ones can play and have fun while learning many things about the Alpine world. The park is ideal for families with children. Do you want to know more?
