What to do in St. Ulrich in the summer?
The World Heritage site of the Dolomites is definitely one of the most beautiful regions for extended hiking tours. Waymarked hiking paths lead past picturesque mountain lakes, magnificent mountain peaks and vast mountain pastures. Numerous huts offer South Tirolean delicacies. Ambitious hikers should aim for "Cristal d'Or": Get a hiking pass at the tourist office and stamp it at every hut on the way. Depending on the performance you will get a golden, silver, bronze or a quartz hiking medal.
The mountain passes are very popular among cyclists and motorbikers. Gardena Pass, connecting Val Gardena and Gader Valley, lies at an elevation of 2,121 m. Together with Sella Pass (2,218), Pordoi Pass (2,239 m) and Passo Campolongo (1875 m), Gardena Pass forms Sella Ronda.
Mountain bikers will find numerous bike rentals, great mountain biking infrastructure, downhill routes and breath-taking landscape in Val Gardena. The “Mountain Bike Holidays” portal awarded Val Gardena with the “Approved Bike Area” status – so far, the only in South Tirol. Bike events such as “HERO Südtirol Dolomites” and “Sellaronda Bike Day” attract thousands of sports enthusiasts every year.
