Ega valley in South Tyrol with its sunny location and very charming villages Nova Ponente, Obereggen, Ega, Monte San Pietro, Nova Levante, Carezza and Collepietra is first all an El Dorado for hikers, in the middle of the Latemar and Catinaccio massive in the Dolomites.
The season starts mid May, when the enchanting flowers cover the mountain pasture grassland and the glowing Catinaccio and Latemar produce unique eye candy panoramas.
There are many hundreds of kilometres of well-marked trails and paths waiting to be discovered: from easy and moderately difficult hikes through blooming grassland, rich forests and green mountain pastures to demanding climbing tours.
Where hiking is turned into an adventure: footpaths, marked hiking trails, airy high-altitude paths, climbing trails.
