Aware in the mountains - respect the dolomites

Respect the mountains of the Eggental valley

Active in – and for – the natural world of South Tyrol

The Dolomite mountains form part of the Dolomites UNESCO World Heritage Site, where sustainability and a mindful approach to nature and landscape are writ large: “Respect the Mountains” is a project that aims to involve and raise the awareness of EVERYONE as regards environmental protection – not only when out and about in the mountains, but also in everyday life. Locals, tourism professionals and guests alike can become active together IN nature and FOR the preservation of its natural treasures – in a very straightforward, heartfelt and mindful way.

And this is how you too can make an effective contribution:

Thinking water, drinking water

The tap water in the Eggental valley is also high-quality drinking water and thus a particularly pure form of happiness. You don’t need bottled water in the great outdoors: just take a refillable drinking bottle that you can fill up at one of the Eggental valley’s countless drinking water points. And, because the climate crisis is also a water crisis, the “Respect the Mountains” project aims at the careful use of one of our most valuable resources. That’s why you can always top up with water on your adventures with our Eggental reusable bottle – and stay plastic-free on your travels.

Awareness, not wastefulness

Always take your rubbish home with you after an excursion into the natural world, and make sure you dispose of it properly. With recyclable, eco-friendly packaging alternatives and a little forward planning, you can avoid rubbish and food waste in the first place. Our sustainability project is an appeal to all: awareness, not wastefulness!

Ten tips for more mindfulness:

1. For the sake of plants and animals, keep to the signposted paths.

2. Observe all signs – for your own safety too!

3. You can easily reach your destination by public transport, ski lift, bike or on foot – you can and should leave your car behind so as to protect the environment. 

4. Everyone is welcome to visit the Eggental valley – skiers, tobogganists, snowboarders, ski safari enthusiasts, hikers, bikers and climbers. Respect for others allows everyone to enjoy their forest, mountain and winter adventure experience to the full.

5. Silence is power – and the key to unforgettable encounters with the natural world: walking in silence may even be rewarded with a sighting of the local wildlife!

6. Please keep your dog on a lead in the mountains, especially near grazing livestock. Please always remember to muzzle your dog on public transport and when travelling on lifts, and to use the dog toilets, as dog faeces on the meadows can among other things cause cows to miscarry.

7. Always make sure to close gates and fences and note that some paths may also lead over private property. 

8. Winter too demands mindfulness and smart thinking: be aware of your surroundings and respect wildlife habitats.

9. Storms can quickly turn into danger in the mountains, so always inform yourself of the weather before setting off on a hike – ideally by checking our local weather forecast!

10. Caution is also required when snowshoeing in winter. When planning a tour, always take into account the latest avalanche reports and always take emergency equipment with you!
