The Isarco Valley offers many opportunities for experienced climbers who are looking for a thrill – and variety from a vertical perspective. The gamut runs from steep climbing walls amidst some of the world’s most spectacular rocks, the UNESCO World Heritage Dolomites
, to the wild mountain landscapes of the Wipptal and Ridanna Valleys
. Whether on the valley’s via ferrata routes, at its climbing parks or on a guided mountain-climbing tour, anyone who loves this sport will find a favorite route in the Isarco Valley.
In Brixen, indoor climbers will find climbing gyms such as Vertikale Climbing Center
, where sport climbers will find a selection of 150 different routes of all levels and a bouldering room with over 170 boulders. In the center of the hall there is a tower, which is encased in glass surfaces and thus offers climbers a view of the mountains and of Brixen’s historical center
. Outdoor climbing enthusiasts will also enjoy the sizable open-air section at Vertikale Climbing Center.
Small and large adventurers alike should visit SKYTREK High-Ropes and Adventure Park
in Vipiteno, near the valley station of Rosskopf.
Two introductory courses, a children's route, a zip line and five courses of varying levels of difficulty provide adventures and an adrenalin thrill in the treetops to high-ropes climbers.
