Nova Ponente – Obereggen – Ega – Monte San Pietro – Nova Levante – Lake Carezza – Collepietra
Val d'Ega with its idyllic and sunny villages of Nova Ponente, Ega, Obereggen, Monte San Pietro, Nova Levante, Lake Carezza and Collepietra, lies in the southwestern Dolomites in the heart of South Tyrol. This holiday region at the foot of the Catinaccio/Rosengarten and Latemar massifs is worth a visit all year round due to its magical mountain scenery and the diverse range of sports and events on offer.
In summer, the “Kingdom of King Laurin” is a paradise for hikers and climbers with over 500 km of well-marked trails and routes.
Challenging via ferratas lead to the peaks of the Rosengarten - Latemar group, where climbing enthusiasts will be rewarded with a unique panoramic view of the entire Val d'Ega plateau and the surrounding Dolomite peaks.
Thrilling mountain bike trails, the 18-hole golf course Petersberg, the Lake Carezza golf club, the outdoor swimming pools in Nova Levante and Collepietra and the Obereggen high ropes course further add to the range of sport and leisure activities on offer.
Guests are invited to take a break from their hike or mountain bike tour in one of numerous mountain huts which provide a cosy feel-good atmosphere complete with hearty South Tyrolean specialities.
No holiday in Val d'Ega would be complete without a trip to Lake Carezza. The unique blue-green hue of the lake's surface, which mirrors the Latemar peaks on bright days, is sure to enchant. Equally, the natural wonder of Alpenglow at sunset, when the Dolomite peaks glow a fiery red.
In winter, the Latemar Obereggen ski centre (1,550-2,500 m) and the Carezza ski resort (1,182-2,337 m) provide all manner of winter fun. 48 kilometres of diverse, perfectly groomed slopes, 2 incredible snow parks, the guarantee of snow and plenty of spectacular events, make the ski area one of the most popular in South Tyrol.
