If you are longing for lush green expanses, a spring holiday in South Tyrol is just the thing. The pleasant temperatures, unclouded views and pristine mountainscapes offer a magnificent backdrop for all walking and hiking, far removed from crowds and city pollution.
While the mountain tops are still capped in white, at lower altitudes the warmer sun is melting away all the snow and ice, revealing the full, multicoloured beauty of spring in South Tyrol.
With the thaw also comes the hiking season. There are countless itineraries you can choose from to experience nature in all its glory. From family-friendly walks to adrenalin-packed summit climbs, there is something for everyone. And while a summit cross or a traditional Alpine hut are very rewarding goals, you will realise that the greatest joy to be had is probably along the way, with such marvellous views to accompany your every step.
Spring is also the perfect season to enjoy close contact with nature. The Alpine meadows come alight with a palette of delicate and bright colours, the first alpine roses push their magenta heads up towards the sun, and the fauna also awakes from its winter sleep. With some luck, you might be able to spot the marmots! In this season, the woods are an attraction in their own right, with their fresh scents inviting us to breathe in and unwind – a real balm for the body, mind and soul.
