Adrenaline kicks and breathtaking views

Wipptal is a cross-border region that includes South Tyrol’s Alta Vall’Isarco/Wipptal and the side valleys of Val di Fleres/Pflerschtal, Val di Vizze/Pfitschtal, and Val Ridanna/Ridnauntal. A visit to this region is highly rewarding, as it offers a rich blend of cultural, culinary, and active experiences. Mountaineering and climbing in Wipptal are particularly attractive because the routes are varied and easy to reach, and the views from the summits are breathtaking. The mountain ranges that stretch between the Zillertal, Tux, and Stubai Alps boast an intriguing combination of limestone, granite, and slate formations. Not only do they showcase unique geological features, but they also present sporting challenges of varying difficulty levels that cater to everyone from beginners to ambitious professionals.
