Val di Sole: sport, nature and fun outdoors
The name Val di Sole, “sunshine valley”, is not accidental – the days and seasons really do have their fair share of sunshine. Surrounded by the 3000 m plus peaks of the Brenta Dolomites to the South, the Ortles-Cevedale to the north and the Adamello-Presanella to the west, the enchanting scenery in this valley with its spruce, fir and larch forests, expanses of green pastures, mighty glaciers, crystal-clear streams and silvery waterfalls, is nothing short of breathtaking.
Down in the valley, where the river Noce flows, there are torrents bursting with fish, castles, churches and old settlements where time seems to have stood still. The way of life, customs, local cuisine and traditions have changed little over the years.
The Val di Sole mountain resorts of Folgarida, Marilleva, Pejo and Passo Tonale are great places to have the maximum outdoor fun: the ski slopes always perfectly groomed, there are plenty of nursery slopes, and for children there is the Daolasa Fun Park, a playground in the snow with inflatables, sledging and snow tubing runs, and educational games.
In summer, there’s plenty of scope in the mountains of Val di Sole for walks, high altitude hikes for the more experienced and nature trails where you can marvel at the wealth of flora and fauna in the mountains and in the two parks which lie partly in the province: the Stelvio National Park to the north and the Adamello Brenta Nature Park to the South
For a holiday of sport, relaxation and wellbeing, Val di Sole is a must!!!
