Reindeers in the Dolomites

Have you ever seen a reindeer close up? If not, you have the unique possibility to visit these animals from the high north on Rotwandwiesen at Drei Zinnen Dolomites ski area!

At Rotwandwiesen, small and big winter fans are looking forward to a reindeer family, domiciled here in Hochpustertal since a few years and growing every year. Visitors can see the animals from North America, North Eurasia or Greenland in a special enclosure near the top station of Rotwand cableway. In case of high amounts of snow, the reindeers have already managed several times to overcome the fence and to discover the surrounding ski runs.

In winter, skiers may simply stop by the enclosure and stroke the wonderful animals. In summer as well, the cableway takes animal loving visitors directly to the reindeers. Also, there are regular reindeer feedings. The meal consists of excellent Icelandic moss and of special cereal drops as dessert.

Families particularly have the possibility to visit the reindeers at Rotwandwiesen in Sexten and to enjoy the fantastic natural landscape of Hochpustertal in the Dolomites in the meantime.
