Physically active throughout the summer – at Walterthof in Feldthurns
South Tyrol: a region that fascinates travelers all year round with its impressive alpine mountain ranges, picturesque valleys, charming lakes and rivers, as well as with the cultural traditions of two countries.

Spring and summer in the Eisack Valley
The unique alpine landscape in Eisack Valley offers outdoor enthusiasts and nature lovers the best grounds for various activities in their spring and summer vacations: those who want some action can put their nerves to the test by performing paraglider tandem skydiving or going on a mountain climbing tour, while those who would prefer to stay calm are able to recharge their batteries as well by following a calm walking tour through our lovely mountain trails, so that they can return back home feeling relaxed after their vacation in the Eisack Valley. Mountain bikers and cyclists can also benefit from our well-established cycle paths in order to enjoy their trip.
In March, the Eisack Valley starts to slowly wake up from its winter sleep. While the valleys and mountain pastures begin to bloom, the spring reaches the top of the mountain at a later point: that is how impressive photo motives are formed, which invite us to take unique walking tours through the mountains of the Eisack Valley. The southern portion of the Eisack Valley starts to experience the spring a little earlier, due to the flowing wind currents from the Mediterranean Sea: our Walterthof in Feldthurns is located in that area.
We gladly look forward to your visit in Spring or Summer!
