The mountain village of Corvara - Rabenstein (1419 m) in Passiria valley in South Tyrol is nestled within a magnificent natural landscape. It has a scenary you will only find in fairy-tales: varied, colourful and unforgettably beautiful.
The nature park Gruppo di Tessa, with its variety of flora and fauna, can be experienced via numerous hiking routes.
Corvara is proud of its tradition. The unique old farmhouses bring you back in time.
The main feature of this hike (paths 29 and 30) is the magnificent Schwarzsee lake (Black lake), located near the source of the Passirio river. Running over stones and through meadows, this is a lovely natural spectacle.
From the parking lot situated on the road to the Passo Rombo, continue to the Oberglanegg mountain hut. From there, follow the narrow winding trail to the magnificent alpine lake Seebersee, esconsed in wild terrain under the gaze of the Monte Principe and Monte dei Granati.
"Kummersee" circuit trail tells a story leading across several hundred years of local history, starting from the village, of how Corvara and the whole valley were threatened due to repeated dam failures and flooding.
The St. Martin am Schneeberg settlement is a former village for miners working at the Schneeberg Monteneve mine and can only be reached on foot. Today the shelter, exhibition and the mine itself document the history of one of the most important lead and zinc mines in Tyrol. The miners' village of S. Martino di Monteneve lies at 2355 m above sea level and in summer can be reached from the Passo Rombo street via good walking paths in about two hours.
The Ski Resort of Plan can guarantee a large amount of natural snow, and has slopes that cater for all tastes and experience levels.
In the winter, Corvara is trasformed into a real Eldorado for ice climbers. A 25 meter tower challenges climbers with horizontal climbing passages, overhangs and transverses. Up to 18 athletes can climb on the wall of ice and the ice cylinder at the same time.
