Just you and the wild-romantic fairy tale world in white... snow-covered trees... crystal clear air... marvellous peace. On snowshoe hikes in South Tyrol you can listen to the silence of the winter and make your tracks on the glittering snow cover. Because of its flat meadows and rustic Alpine huts, Alpe di Villandro, South Tyrol’s second largest Alp, is ideal for extended snowshoe hikes: A white winter landscape as far as the eye can see, the glittering snow crystals, the crunchy snow beneath your feet. In the rustic huts you can relax and enjoy the stunning panorama of the Dolomites: Nowhere else can you see the whole of the Dolomites range before you!
