at Val Casies-Monguelfo-Tesido
The children let themselves be lured by their dads: “It smells.. it smells... it smells.. like mushrooms!” and start searching the forest floor a few feet from the path, until their eyes rivet on the dark brown cap of a porcini mushroom and a resounding cry of triumph rings out. At the hiking destination, hungry mouths await the hearty cuisine of the Pidigalmen, where energy can be replenished for building forts or cabins at the edge of the forest. With whatever the forest and the meadow provide, fantastic construction works take shape! It’s possible to build a copy of the farm that made the kids so enthusiastic yesterday. Cones from pine and spruce trees turn into donkeys, sheep, pigs, cows, birds, alpacas, yaks, goats, chickens: so many animals are right at home at the Reierhof!
And the next day, it will “knock the socks off” the entire family when the schedule includes a barefoot hike on the Rudlbachweg in Tesido. Then there is also Prenniger Park in Monguelfo, the Schneider Waldile, or the Sonnenhof Riding Stables in Colle Val Casies Valley. It goes without saying that there has to be a swimming pool, and Monguelfo is waiting with the unique miniature golf course.
And in the wintertime? Then Colle, Santa Maddalena-St. Magdalena, and Tesido offer children and family-friendly ski runs where, with the help of the local ski schools, skiing can be learned in a wonderfully relaxed way, before heading later on to the ski areas of the Plan de Corones-Kronplatz, 3 Zinnen Dolomites, Speikboden, and Klausberg, with numerous combinations of ski runs.
Sledding and ice skating are also popular winter sports for families.
