Walking through climate zones

Thanks to its special location and shape, the area around Kaltern-Caldaro features a number of micro-climates providing the chance to cool off or warm up according to the season.

If you’ve had enough of snow and ice in February, there is a very easy 4-hour walk through a sea of snowdrops and other early-flowering plants along the so-called ’Frühlingstal‘ (‘Spring Valley’) between both lakes at Montiggl-Monticolo and the lake at Kaltern-Caldaro.

In summer, the ‘Eislöcher‘ (‘Ice Holes’) above Eppan-Appiano offer a place to cool off.

Set at an altitude of 500 metres, this spot owes its name to an interesting natural phenomenon: crevasses in the rocks there store the winter cold and cool down the air entering from above to give the air down below a temperature of just 0-5°C, even at the height of summer. Kids find love it! It takes around 2 hours to walk there.
