Val d'Ultimo

Val d'Ultimo is a genuine and unspoiled South Tyrolean valley far from mainstream mass tourism. A secluded valley, made up of vast meadows and forests which stretches for over 40 km, ranging from the source of the Valsura River in Fontana Bianca to close to Lana.

The harbours of the municipality of Ultimo, which extends between 940 and 1,800 metres above sea level are:

  • Santa Gertrude, situated close to the Stelvio Nature Park and noted for its millennium larches and its visitor centre "Lahner Säge"
    in the park.
  • San Nicolò, with its ethnographical museum of Val d'Ultimo and the church of San Nicolò
  • Pracupola, known for its winter school where antique handcraft gets taught.
  • Santa Valburga, which is only a few km away from the artificial lake of Zoccolo.

In summer you can spend you days outside, in the Nordic walking park or choose from more than 700km of paths for hiking.
In winter at the Schwemmalm ski resort there is a cable car for 8 people, 25km of slopes and 2 cross-country skiing tracks.
