A winter dream in the family village of Olang / Valdaora
At the foot of the UNESCO World Heritage Nature Site of the Dolomites
The bizarre white summits and the enchanted mountain forests look down at the picturesque village of Olang / Valdaora in the immediate vicinity of the capital of the Pusteria Valley, Bruneck / Brunico. Situated in the heart of the Fanes-Sennes-Prags / Fanes-Senes-Braies Nature Park, Olang / Valdaora is the ideal starting-point for incomparable winter experiences and individual family fun. Olang / Valdaora, the family village for active vacationing, scores points for its wild, romantic nature and countless offers. Especially grandparents, parents, teenagers, and kids are enthused.
The community of Olang / Valdaora is located in the middle of the Pusteria Valley and extends from 981 to 2,567 meters above sea-level. The community encompasses the districts of Oberolang / Valdaora di Sopra, Mitterolang / Valdaora di Mezzo, Niederolang / Valdaora di Sotto and highest village, Geiselsberg / Sorafurcia. On one hand, it is situated at the foot of the UNESCO World Heritage Nature Site of the Dolomites. On the other, it is flanked by the south side of the main ridge of the Alps. Two spectacular natural worlds clash here. Every visitor can find just the right thing to suit his tastes: Families, skiers, snowboarders, gourmets, or culture fans. Every day in this almost untouched natural playground is an adventure – whether you prefer tobogganing, skiing, hiking in this enchanted winter landscape, attending events in Olang / Valdaora, or cross-country and ice-skating. In the Pusteria Valley, every day is a special experience for big and small!
The entire vacation resort area is extremely well connected. Thus, the facilities of the Kronplatz / Plan de Corones – which is part of Dolomiti Superski Carousel – can be used with the corresponding ski ticket.
Public transportation like the newly-opened train connection between the Kronplatz / Plan de Corones and the Sexten / Sesto Dolomites ski area ensure short and convenient connections – always against the impressive backdrop of South Tyrol.
