Even though Valdaora is located not far away from Brunico-Bruneck, the largest town of the Pustertal Valley, it features beautiful rural houses and colourful farmers' gardens. Olang fits perfectly into the landscape of shining white Dolomite summits and lush dark green mountain forests. During your stay in Valdaora you find yourself at the heart of nature. If you would like to be active outdoors and discover nature in the mountains of the Pustertal Valley and its untouched side valleys, Valdaora-Olang is an ideal starting point for you.
The town is located in the Fanes-Sennes-Prags Nature Park where the Rieserferner glacier and Sextner Dolomites seem close enough to touch. However, this is not really the case as you can find out yourself when going for a hike, cycling tour or ski tour...
Valdaora is South Tyrol's number one active family village where children not only have sufficient space to romp and play but can experience many things for the first time in their life, like horseriding or simply patting a horse, 3D archery, exploring the elements and playing Cowboys and Indians for a day. There is also plenty on offer for adults in Valdaora-Olang: huts serving food and drink, an outdoor swimming pool, tennis courts, a golf course and two horseriding centres.
A highlight for the whole family is the Kids World Valdaora.
