Mountaineering in South Tyrol

We South Tyroleans are truly fortunate. Everywhere you turn, there are towering mountains. While they’re magnificent to behold from a comfortable deckchair, if you’ve never ventured to climb them yourself, you’re missing out on an awe-inspiring natural experience that will stay with you forever. The options are vast and cater to every type of mountaineer. How about a tour in the Texel Group Nature Park, surrounded by 3000-metre peaks? Does that sound tempting? Well, give in to temptation – you won’t regret it!

Rock climbing in South Tyrol

Experience the raw power of the mountains up close. With courage and stamina, you can conquer the rugged cliffs. While climbing in South Tyrol isn’t a necessity, it’s an incredibly fulfilling pursuit. With adrenaline coursing through your veins, you can tackle the awe-inspiring Dolomites themselves. Alternatively, visit one of the numerous climbing parks or indoor halls and ascend to new heights. Anything is possible – you just need the desire. A climbing paradise awaits!
