The Aurina valley, one of the most beautiful valleys in South Tirol,
nestles to the south of the Zillertal Alps, next to the Ries-Aurina Nature Reserve. This golden and sunny valley with its neat holiday villages extends north from Brunico: Lutago, San Giovanni, and Riobianco offer something for every taste, from naturalness, peace, and quiet to activity, comfort, and vitality.
The well marked hiking trails in the Zillertal Alps and the Hohe Tauern mountains, passing by small alpine lakes, waterfalls, and huts, take you to the most beautiful spots. Bright sunlight, stunning glaciers, 60 three-thousand-meter peaks, and two skiing areas (Speikboden und Klausberg)in winter.
In Lutago you have the choice between shopping, sports, and much more. San Giovanni with its famous Baroque church represents the cultural center of the valley. Riobianco, an idyllic alpine village, is a real paradise for hikers, bikers, and mountaineers.
