Valle Aurina

The municipality of Valle Aurina stretches at the foot of the main Alpine divide and is one of the most original of South Tyrol.

Valle Aurina, this is how the municipality in the homonymous valley is called, which comprises the villages of Lutago, Cadipietra, S. Giovanni, S. Pietro and Rio Bianco and that stretches from 942 to 3,378 m asl, from the so-called “Klapfl” behind Campo Tures to the valley narrowing at S. Pietro.

The municipality comprises about 5,800 inhabitants and can be considered one of the most original of South Tyrol. Well-cultivated centuries-old farmsteads in extraordinarily exposed locations characterise the landscape, surrounded by plenty of mountains of three thousand metres and the 50 alpine pastures and mountain refuges of the valley. The Vedrette di Ries-Aurina nature park makes you come in close contact with nature, also mountaineers feel at ease in this area. Finally the Sasso Nero and Gran Lovello are calling.

In winter the Klausberg and Speikboden skiing areas make winter sports enthusiasts’ hearts leap for joy. Also tobogganing and winter hiking are particularly popular activities. If you prefer visiting a museum, we recommend you the mining museum Kornkasten and the mineral museum.
