South Tirol in summer is a true mecca for hikers, mountaineers and race cyclists. The World Heritage Site of the Dolomites boasts easy hikes on well-groomed trails (e.g. Col Alt - Pralongià or Piz La Ila) as well as longer and challenging hikes (Puez – Geisler Nature Resreve, Sassongher and Piz Boè) suitable for experienced mountaineers. The picturesque village of La Villa, close to San Cassiano in the heart of the Dolomites, turns into the centre of race cycling every summer. The traditional “Maratona dles Dolomites” starts at La Villa. Many athletes visit the Dolomites for the bicycle tour around the Sella group or the car-free “Sella Ronda Bike Day”. Val Badia offer a great variety of summer outdoor activities: via ferratas, tennis courts, Alta Badia golf course and many museums. Bad weather tip: Museum of the Sleeping Bear.
