The Zukunftsinstitut describes resonant sports as a trend of the future. The report states: “Resonance sports attract people looking for a new bond, something that frees them from perceived digital autism.” These sports include cross-country skiing, snowshoe hiking or ski touring
. They all require intensive contact with nature and promote a connection with one’s own body.
Winter in South Tyrol offers space for gentle movement in nature. We recommend the following activities and the appropriate environment:
Snowshoe hiking on the Vigiljoch mountain
On the Vigiljoch
, the local mountain of Lana, you’ll discover a quiet winter forest perfect for gentle hikes in the snow. Way up high, time seems to stand still during wintertime. No cars, no noise, no hassle. In nature
, the spirit finds soothing peace
for tranquillity and an important break from everyday life.
Cross-country skiing in Plan/Pfelders
Largely untouched nature can also be enjoyed in the traffic-calmed mountain village of Plan
in the Passeiertal valley. This small Alpine village is one of the Alpine Pearls
, because it is completely car-free and enchantingly situated in mountains. The Laziner Tal cross-country skiing trail leads through snow-covered mountain landscapes and silver-green spruces. The trail is perfect for beginners and children.
Ice skating under the stars in the Ultental valley
Like dancing, coordination and strength are also required when ice skating. With thousands of sparkling stars in the sky above, ice skating
is an especially enchanting experience in the evening. You can hear the whisper of the runners and watch your breath rising like smoke in the cold, clear air. The Ultental valley
is known for its pristine nature, its vast forests, and numerous mountain lakes.
