Untouched nature as far as the eye can see

Fleres / Pflersch

For those looking for a very special retreat, Fleres / Pflerschtal on the border with Austria is recommended. Very few tourists "get lost" here, so it's hardly surprising that this beautiful spot is considered a real insider tip among connoisseurs. The valley winds its way for 16 kilometers towards the Stubai Alps, impressively surrounded by numerous peaks between two and three thousand meters high.

St. Anton, the main town in the valley, is located at an idyllic 1250 meters above sea level and offers small but fine accommodation for young and old. It is mainly inns and guesthouses that lovingly accommodate and host their guests. Although the Pflerschtal is long, it is very sparsely populated, so it can happen that you don't encounter a single soul for hours. Apart from the main town, there are only a few scattered settlements and farms throughout the valley.

Here you can relax from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and enjoy the beauty of the surroundings in peace and quiet. Especially for nature lovers, an Eldorado for walks and hikes of all kinds opens up in a partially high alpine setting.

The Silver Valley

The Pflerschtal in South Tyrol is often also called Silbertal - a name that is supposed to refer to the history of the valley. In the 15th and 16th centuries, mining was actively and successfully carried out here; the population was able to secure their livelihood at that time. A few memories of this time still exist in the form of abandoned tunnels today. Tip: if you want to discover the Silbertal on your own, you can use a particularly convenient means of transportation. Where the Pflerschtal branches off, the village of Gossensass is located and here you can rent fun mountain carts. These are three-wheeled vehicles that are a bit reminiscent of go-karts, but much more comfortable and safer. Just choose the right size (small, medium, or large) and off you go.

There is also plenty to experience and discover on the numerous hiking trails around the valley. Whether it's a leisurely family hike or a challenging via ferrata, the landscape is almost perfect for all kinds of outdoor activities. Particularly sporty holidaymakers can of course also opt for a mountain bike tour or a climb to the Feuerstein glacier. Children will enjoy an easy hike on the 3-Almenweg Rosskopf-Ladurns-Allriss-Dolomieu. Here they will find a lovingly designed nature trail that helps them to get to know the plants and animals of the alpine landscape even better.

Skiing fun in winter

Fleres / Pflersch is one of the snowiest regions in South Tyrol. The season starts relatively early, as it can snow really nicely as early as October. And then the white splendor can remain until April or even longer. In the Ladurns-Gossensass ski area, enthusiastic skiers will find everything they need. Manageable slopes, well-groomed cross-country ski trails, and two natural tracks that invite you to have fun sledding. In the evening, you can replenish your energy in one of the cozy hotels, wellness hotels, guesthouses, holiday apartments, or inns, and then go to bed exhausted but happy a little later. This is what pure winter fun looks like.

Behavior in the High Mountains

High up, surrounded by a breathtaking mountain panorama, different rules apply than down in the valley. The weather turns faster, a planned tour sometimes requires more effort than expected, and a small misstep can sometimes necessitate an early return.
