Winter vacation in Fiè allo Sciliar / South Tyrol – pure skiing fun
In the heart of the UNESCO World Heritage Dolomites, there is one of the most popular ski areas in South Tyrol: In the ski area Val Gardena / Alpe di Siusi with 175 km of slopes, experienced skiers and beginners will certainly find a true paradise.
If you wish to experience pure nature away from the hustle and bustle on the slopes, you may embark on a ski tour in Fiè allo Sciliar in South Tyrol. Locals and holidaymakers particularly enjoy the tour from Siusi to the Alpe di Siusi. On remote trails, professional mountain guides accompany you through the deep snow, for example, to Sasso Piatto, Sasso Longo or from Passo delle Erbe to Mount Gabler.
