Winter holidays in the Braies Dolomites

Snow-shoe hikes, ski touring, sledging - snowy winter is so varied in the Braies Dolomites ...

Vast fields, mountain pastures, thick forests, superb rocky giants. The many enchanting facets of the hikers' paradise in the Braies Dolomites attract nature-loving tourists not only in the green summer season. In winter too, the best way to explore the Dolomites is to go on foot. And, more precisely, with snow-shoes. Or with touring skis. Both activities are very popular and offer an alternative to downhill and cross-country skiing, and can be practised at Braies, in the Dolomites.

Winter Prato PiazzaWinter in Alta Pusteria

Soft snowflakes land on your nose as you plod along the valley to Prato Piazza, alone or accompanied by an expert mountain guide. You walk as light as a feather with snow-shoes over the scintillating blanket of snow. Once you reach the top, stop for a moment. Enjoy the view. Take deep breaths. Then continue on touring skis to Monte Specie or Picco di Vallandro. Alternative destinations for winter hikers: Malga Foresta, Malga Cavallo, Malga di Tesido. When you return from your adventures, get cosy in our wellness area in the Dolomites, South Tyrol. But that is not all: families with children can enjoy ice skating at Monguelfo and Dobbiaco, or sledging down the curving tracks like the ones on Monte Baranci and Monte Elmo. Right in the middle of this winter paradise is the Hotel Pragserhof, your base at Braies for a winter holiday in the Braies Dolomites.
