Hiking in the Dolomites
  • Hiking in the Dolomites – an artwork of stone and rocks

Mountain experiences around the Latemar - che bellissima!

The Dolomites are a true work of art and beauty – a real "Bellezza" of rocks and fir forest.

Delightful tour through the mountains

Obereggen is an idyllic mountain village surrounded by the Dolomites World Heritage natural site. The village offers a beautiful panoramic view to the Latemar Massif, the Rosengarten, Weißhorn and Schwarzhorn and Zangen.

The Latemar used to be a coral reef that grew in the warm water of the Tethys Ocean. The reef was battered by quakes, uplifts and floods and its brittle inside collapsed. This is why the entire mountain massif still looks like a semicircle.

The 330 “dolls“ of the Latemar

Our local mountain, the Latemar, is known across the country for its many small limestone towers. We also call them “the 330 dolls of the Latemar“. Since 2009, these limestone mountains are among the most beautiful landscapes in the world, offering dream landscapes for nature lovers and mountaineers and are the habitat for many wild animals and rare plants.

New in the Dolomites - the Latemarium

Latemar theme hiking trails

Hiking with small children and pushchair is combined with many exciting adventure stations for everyone along the Latemar.Natura trail.

The Latemar.Panorama hiking trail leads uphill to the best views. Along the trail, you learn interesting facts about the region and enjoy stunning vistas at the various resting spots.

Hiking on the Latemar.Tempo trail means slowing down, relaxation and resting for nature lovers. Direct and close experiences with and in nature are here at centre stage for leisure hikers and families with small children.

The Latemar.Alp trail is suitable for pushchairs and meanders gently from alpine pasture to alpine pasture along the stunning rock panorama of the Latemar Mountains. Families do not only enjoy the view and South Tyrolean treats on this new theme trail, they also learn interesting facts about alpine farming and the World Heritage natural site.

The new "Latemar.Art" route leads past the workshops of international artists up to over 2000 metres above sea level. This makes it one of the world’s highest-situated exhibition sites where you can admire sculptures and installations surrounded by nature.

Sporty ambitious hikers try their luck as summit conquerors on the Latemar.UNESCO trail, one of the most beautiful hiking trails in the Dolomites. The intermediate, well-secured mountain hiking tour leads past mighty rockfalls of bizarre boulders. The reward for all the efforts: the stunning vista to the Marmolada, the highest mountain in the Dolomites.

Perfect altitude training at the Latemar.Run. This running route leads to the upper terminus of the Oberholz lift and offers perfect conditions in a stunning scenery between 1.550 m and 2.100 m above sea level. A more leisurely version leads around the world’s most beautiful mountain lakes – the Lago di Carezza.

Labyrinth climb – our most popular hiking tour

An easy hiking tour on forest paths through the Karerforst at the base of the magnificent north faces of the Latemar Massif – this is our most popular hiking tour.

The labyrinth climb origins from a gigantic rockfall and leads through a labyrinth of rocks with house-high boulders downhill to the Lago di Carezza.
