The cross-country slopes are groomed twice or four times a day. Whether skating or classic, beginner or professional, the Alpe di Siusi in South Tyrol offers the right trails for everyone.

Climbing & via ferrata

The Dolomites in South Tyrol are a unique climbing area. The massifs of Sassolungo and Sciliar are particularly legendary, with their mighty rock faces and bizarre rock needles.
The climbing school offers a comprehensive program with via ferrata, rock climbing for beginners, extreme mountaineering, sports climbing and much more. Climbing enthusiasts will find a large bouldering hall in the Telfen sports center, about 3 minutes’ drive from B&B Cavallino d‘Oro.


The golf course in the neighboring village of Siusi is an 18-hole golf course, 69 par, and extends over an area of approximately 60 hectares. The course is playable from March to November and is suitable for organizing competitive competitions, thanks to its altitude (850 m) under excellent climatic conditions.
As a partner of the golf club, we can reserve game times for you!
