Corvara is the touristic centre of Alta Badia. The village is located at 1568 m. above sea level at the bottom of Sassongher Mountain, which offers a unique panoramic view.
The village has been a popular destination amongst mountaineers for many years. The locals offered guided hiking tours for tourists already during the 18th century. The first ski lift Col Alto was constructed in 1938 and the first ski school opened in 1947. Today, the ski slopes in and around Corvara are amongst the most renowned in South Tyrol, and so are the cross-country tracks leading through forests all the way to the Pisciadù waterfall.
Only a few kilometres from Corvara golfers find Tranrüs, a small village district with a 9-hole golf course. Its location at 1700 m above sea level makes this the highest golf course in Europe, embedded in an enchanting surrounding with forests, green meadows and the splendid Dolomites in the backdrop.
The fresco in the Parish Curch S. Caterina with S. Caterina from Alexandria is a special piece of art. Another representation of the martyrdom of this Saint is located on the outer wings of the triptych (3-piece altar picture) on the high altar, a wing altar by Ruprecht Potsch dating back to 1520. This gothic church was consecrated in 1452 and again in 1501.
During hot summer days, the biotope lake in Corvara with its clear and fresh water is ideal for cooling off. There is also a smaller pool for children and a playground. The area features sun loungers and showers and a restaurant with bar located in a typical wooden log house.
