Watles mountain fun

Hiking and adventure in Watles above Burgusio and Malles

In summer, the Watles adventure mountain above Burgusio and Malles turns into an ideal starting point for hiking along well-signposted trails, with breathtaking views over the Upper Venosta Valley and of the surrounding mountain peaks. The newest and latest lifts and cable cars, such as the chairlift at Prämajur, allow hiking and mountain biking enthusiasts to quickly and easily reach the heart of this recreational area, located at 2150 m above sea level.

Throughout the entire Watles area, all of the trails are particularly suited to families. These trails are embedded in the natural landscape of the Alpine Sesvenna mountain group. Even those less familiar with the world of mountaineering have the opportunity to seek an unforgettable experience in the high Alpine nature. Next to the chairlift mountain station is a large playground for children, with a new "adventure lake" awaiting them with countless other attractions, such as the 3D archery location for bow and arrow enthusiasts. Here, enthusiasts can demonstrate their skills in two different settings.

The shelters and huts in the true hikers' paradise of Watles are not only part of a dense network of paths, they also offer the opportunity to rest at one of many sunny terraces, ideal spots for tired hikers who can allow themselves to be pampered by the sun and to re-energize with a typical South Tyrolean afternoon snack.

Those who want to enjoy a relaxed day's journey in the Watles area without spending time looking for a parking place can also make use of our Hiking Taxi and Citybus.
