Falzes in Val Pusteria: trekking and skiing holidays
Falzes lies along the "sun road" Strada del Sole della Val Pusteria. It is a typical alpine village offering pleasant walks and hikes in summer, a lot of fun for children in the adventure park on the Issengo lake and cross-country trails in winter. All this in a sunny and peaceful environment.
The origins of this place are very ancient: in fact, the Romans too had appreciated its wonderful position! Together with its hamlets - Issengo, Grimaldo, Plata and Covolo - it is an ideal place for a family holiday surrounded by nature. Besides small treasures, such as churches, mountain pine distilleries and herbal gardens, it offers interesting free time opportunities for everybody.
In spring, summer and autumn you can walk among farmhouses, typical shepherds' huts, high peaks and themed and guided tours - for example "Le pietre raccontano" ("Stones tell a story"). There are many Nordic walking tours starting in the village. Anyway, it is also beloved for more engaging itineraries: for example, this is where the famous high route Alta Via di Fundres ends, whereas in Plata you can find a path taking to the peaks of Monte Sommo and Plattnerspitz.
In the hamlet of Issengo there is a wonderful lake, and in summer its benches are a meeting point for families and water lovers. In fact this is a bathing lake, and in the warmest season a rich entertainment program for children is offered. This is also where the Kronaction Outdoor & Fun Park is located: the biggest adventure park in South Tyrol, featuring over 100 stations and 8 different routes. Furthermore, children can have fun in the playground in the town center, at the the minizoo and at the manège.
In winter Falzes won't let you be bored: walks in the fresh snow, snowshoe walks, cross country skiing and sledge on the slope in Monte di Capolino (open and lit till 10 pm), ice skating at the sport center, with skate rental and ice skittles.
