Valle Isarco: a world of activities, attractions and events
Even lovelier when seen up close
In spring, a colourful sea of apple blossom fills the valley with a sweet scent; in winter, the rocky giants are clothed in white; but the Isarco Valley is delightful all year round, with its fascinating mix of Mediterranean brio and alpine friendliness.
Simply put, it’s idyllic. Yes, the Naz-Sciavesapple-orchard plateau is only a tiny heart-shaped area on the big map of South Tyrol, but perhaps that’s what gives the village its special charm.
…and go out and explore the valley of paths, as the Isarco Valley is called. Hikers can enjoy some wonderful adventures on a well-established network of trails. And starting straight from the hotel, there are plenty of lovely walks, mountain hikes and family excursions.

No apples, no party
It’s no secret that the tastiest apples grow in Naz-Sciaves. But did you know that the Royal Festival is held on May 1st every year, to honour the apple and other South Tyrolean delights? The festival offers a varied programme of events, including lots of musical entertainment and places to sample local food. And then, there are all the “Royal Highnesses” …
