Tobogganing

An adventure for the whole family

 

In South Tyrol, tobogganing is a widely popular sport, with a broad base. When you spend your winter holidays here, you simply must visit the natural tobogganing runs of the Ahrn / Aurina Valley. After a somewhat challenging ascent to the starting-point, you will be rewarded with a breath-taking sled ride to the bottom.

If you prefer a less-strenuous option, you might want to visit the tobogganing runs in the ski areas of Klausberg and Speikboden. By the taking the aerial lifts, you can spare yourself the arduous ascent on foot. Now, all you have to do is take your place in the toboggan and glide down the run. By the way: At the Klausberg, there’s the Klausberg-Flitzer, Italy’s longest alpine roller coaster!

Even at night, the pistes aren’t deserted. Moonlight tobogganing on illuminated runs is a very special highlight that mustn’t be missed.

You can rent sleds and toboggans at the rental agency or at the valley stations.

 

Nighttime tobogganing at the Klausberg

Nighttime tobogganing is a popular activity every Tuesday at the Klausberg ski area. From 7:30 p.m. till 10:00 p.m., the six-seat aerial tram will take you up to an altitude of 1,650 meters above sea-level – from where you can then speed down the five-km-long tobogganing run to the valley under a starry sky.

The 3.5-km-long natural run (with guaranteed snow and excellent grooming) is a forest service trail that winds its way through snow-filled forests and up to three sun-drenched alpine meadows.

There are places you can stop for refreshments and also a toboggan rental agency.
