Holidays in Ahrntal: Sports & pleasure

Three magic words for South Tyrol’s most beautiful side valley: feeling good, enjoying and being active. On the sunny south side of the Zillertal Alps, you can experience a very special mix of adventure, relaxation and cosy hospitality.

The valley is surrounded by eighty 3,000er peaks and several mighty glaciers. The homeland of the famous extreme mountaineer Hans Kammerlander offers above all possibilities of classical mountain sports, like mountain bike and Nordic walking or challenging climbing and summit tours, as well as canyoning.

Easy hiking tours & challenging summits

The green Ahrntal Valley borders on Rieserferner Ahrn Nature Park and is surrounded by the impressive peaks of the Zillertal Alps in the west and in the southwest. Lush meadows, dense forests and flowering fields offer a beautiful contrast to the rugged and partially snow-covered mountains. Due to this varied landscape, Ahrntal is a paradise both for beginners and families as well as for ambitious mountaineers and climbers.

The two family-friendly skiing areas Speikboden and Klausberg complete the mountain offer. Here, you can find modern lifts that take you to lofty heights easily and quickly, inviting mountain huts surprising you with sweet and savoury delicacies, and an extensive leisure time offer for families.
