Unpack your hiking boots and experience an adventure of a lifetime! Surrounded by the impressive peaks of the Sarntal Alps, each hike is something truly magical. Hundreds of well-marked hiking trails with impressive views are waiting right on our doorstep. There are easy paths in the valley and challenging climbs to rustic Alpine huts and refuges, tranquil excursions across flowering meadows and romantic forests, as well as magnificent summit experiences in the imposing world of the giant South Tyrolean mountains. Whether you’re an ambitious alpinist, casual hiker, or family with small children – in the hiking area around the majestic 2,781m Punta Cervina/Hirzer mountain, there is just the right challenge for everyone!
Your apartment at the Hohenegg is the ideal starting point for various cycling and mountain bike tours. Hop on your bike and explore the most beautiful places and viewpoints in the Sarntal mountains directly from the front door. Cycle up the steep mountain roads or test your skills on the various trail routes in the surrounding hiking areas. Those looking for an adrenaline rush are also in the right place. Mike’s Bike Park is 1.5 hectares and awaits you with four-cross and dirt tracks, a pump track, and a practise pit filled with foam cubes. Bikes and protective gear can be rented directly on site.
Is there anything more magical than riding a horse? Hop on, grab the reins, and ride atop a mild-mannered Haflinger horse across the idyllic natural landscape of Sarntal. Countless riding stables in the area not only offer you and your children guided rides but also teach beginners how to ride with a lot of patience, experience, and empathy. Galloping across flowering Alpine meadows with the wind in your hair, with the Sarntal Alps before your eyes – does life get any better than this?
Have you ever set out on a hike with a fluffy alpaca? Unlike an excursion on horseback, the focus is placed on going at a leisurely pace. This allows you to enjoy and appreciate the colours and scents even more. Drop in on our friends at Hofmann Anger, learn all kinds of interesting facts about alpacas, look forward to getting to know these kind-hearted animals, and off you go on an unforgettable hike.
Experience the dream of flying come true with us in Reinswald: Glide into the valley with the air carrying you or soar up into the sky with the help of thermals and admire the panoramic view of the South Tyrolean Alps – could there be anything more beautiful? Trust the experts at Tandem Flights Sarntal and take off together.
PS: You can also reach the starting point of your adventures conveniently and comfortably with public transport as well as with the Sarntal hiking bus service. We would be happy to provide you with more information – just get in touch!
