Val d'Ega

Family programme in the Dolomites

The family programme in South Tyrol’s Val d'Ega

Like kids in the mountains

As the summer sun shines down from the sky over the Val d'Ega, kids will be itching to get outdoors! Both they and their parents will feel the need to get moving…

A gigantic playground

The Val d'Ega in South Tyrol can open its invisible doors to a host of adventures and legendary figures. Life on the farm makes the kids light up with curiosity, while the forests of the Dolomites are there to be explored! There are tricky mini-golf courses and horseback riding, high-ropes courses and walks by torchlight: the family programme in the Val d'Ega offers all kinds of activities!

The program for families and children can take place if parents are present and supervise their children. During the events a distance of one metre must be maintained. This restriction does not apply to members of the same household. If this minimum distance cannot be maintained, the mouth and nose must be covered.
