Winter camping in South Tyrol

Not just for winter sports lovers!

Why is South Tyrol ideal for winter camping? It’s simple: South Tyrol is known for its fantastic ski areas, such as Dolomiti Superski, the Ortler Ski Arena, and Sellaronda, perfectly groomed cross-country ski trails, enchanting winter and snowshoe hiking trails, and traditional Christmas markets. Those who prefer a more leisurely pace can enjoy romantic horse-drawn sleigh rides through snow-covered landscapes or do a few pirouettes on one of South Tyrol’s many frozen lakes. Some campsites also have a wonderful wellness area. Perfect for warming up after a day in the fresh winter air.

Winter hiking
Explore South Tyrol’s quiet side. Snowshoe through peaceful side valleys and snow-covered forests, discover unique vantage points, and feel the clear winter air fill your lungs.
