Summer in Racines
An Alpine paradise all around you
Are you looking forward to blue summer skies? Pack your rucksack and come to Racines! There is an impressive mountain landscape waiting to be explored on foot or by bike …
Blooming Alpine meadows, rugged peaks and snowy glaciers – the landscape of Racines-Ridanna is as varied as it is beautiful. There is something to suit every taste, from family-friendly walks and traditional Alpine huts to daring climbs up to 3,000 metres that require a good dose of experience and condition. You can make your way uphill on foot or take the comfortable Racines-Giovo lift. Once at the top, you can treat yourself to a tasty snack at the local hut, where they serve spicy grey cheese, Alpine butter and South Tyrolean delicacies. The Giovo pass is criss-crossed by spectacular MTB trails that can also be negotiated by e-bike. There are many beautiful sights in the area of Racines, but the Gilfenklamm – Europe’s only white marble gorge – and the thunderous Stanghe waterfalls are in a class of their own and make for an unforgettable experience. Feeling adventurous? Then a white-water rafting tour and the Skytrek high rope course in Vipiteno will give you the adrenaline kick you are after!
