Active holiday in the South Tyrolean Alps

Nature holiday in its most beautiful form

Anyone spending their active holiday in the Passeiertal valley in South Tyrol will be amazed. After all, the Passeiertal valley is an incredible blend of the most spectacular things. Fairytale winter scenery and snow, as far and even further than the eye can see. Crystal-clear mountain lakes, summer-scented flower meadows and the joy of the mountains in the Texelgruppe nature park. A pristine nature experience, all year round.
Your to-do list? Short and sweet: Take a deep breath, sit back and switch off.

Winter & Spring

  • Cross/country skiing

  • Horse riding
    … is an absolute experience, especially in winter. But where Katy takes you on the trekking tours remains a surprise. Insider tips for your own tours are available directly on site, because no one knows Pfelders and the surrounding area on horseback as well as Katy, Alberich and Dora.
  • Spring fever
    … or the “Psairer Langis”, as it is also called, usually arrives in Pfelders right on time in April. The best way to enjoy this colourful season is to go for a walk or two and – as you’ve probably guessed – go for an exciting horse ride!

If you are enjoying your holiday with us at that time of year, and are in the mood for sunshine, fresh mountain air and toned arm and leg muscles, you are welcome to help …
