LONG LIVE SPORT

Climbing in Val Senales in South Tyrol

Climbing is about pure emotion: Switching off and action, challenges and happiness. And what could be a better setting for one of the most popular mountain sports than the Alpine Arena Senales? Around the Val Senales head and the glacier area you can conquer bouldering, various routes, vertical rock faces - and even your fear of heights! For beginners and families we recommend the Ötzi Rope Park climbing garden just before Kurzras and the new Larix via ferrata with parallel hiking trail in the Alpin Arena Senales. 

Other climbing options near Val Senales in South Tyrol: the Mastaun climbing garden near the village of Unser Frau, the Juval castle climbing garden and the Hoachwool via ferrata - both at the entrance to the valley.

NEW! Larix Ferrata

Take note: from summer 2022, the new 'Larix' (larch in Latin) via ferrata with suspension bridges, exciting rope slides and a parallel hiking trail will be available.The challenging via ferrata is of medium difficulty and also suitable for experienced families. The entrance is located at the foot of the large Kurzrasbach waterfall and leads towards the Teufelsegg hut (unmanned). The 'Alpin Trail' hiking trail runs partly along this, allowing you to observe and accompany the climbers. Whether you are a leisurely hiker or an arduous climber, you will find what you are looking for here.
