The Val Pusteria stretches for 100 km from Rio di Pusteria to Lienz, towards the border between South Tyrol and Austria. The valley comprises some of the more fascinating tourist resorts in the Dolomites: Sesto, San Candido, Dobbiaco, Plan de Corones, Brunico, with luxury hotels, surrounded by beautiful mountains, like the Three Peaks of Lavaredo and the Sesto Dolomites, and three Nature Parks.
The valley is divided in Bassa Pusteria, Plan de Corones and holiday region Three peaks/3 Zinnen in the Dolomites. Valley of active sports par excellence, Val Pusteria offers in winter 107 km of perfectly groomed slopes, a fully-equipped snowboard park and 31 ski lifts on Plan de Corones, and countless cross-country skiing trails in the beautiful and silent secondary valleys of Anterselva and Casies. Here you can practice of course many other sports: winter trekking, snowshoeing and ski mountaineering; or go for a romantic horse-drawn sleigh ride.
