Selva dei Molini and Lappago in the Aurina Valley
Surrounded by high summits which are covered in snow for most of the year are the villages of Selva dei Molini and Lappago at 1450 m above sea level, two beautiful villages in the Aurina Valley surrounded by an area of virtually unspoiled nature. The surrounding landscape is dominated by the Zillertal Alps with the most impressive summits in South Tyrol like Gran Pilastro (3510 m), Ponte di Ghiaccio and Punta Bianca (3371 m).
Wherever you look, you can see old mills and sawmills reminding of old but still living traditions. The locals are closely connected to their past and have preserved old customs and traditions. When it comes to culinary traditions and customs, Selva dei Molini and Lappago, with their interplay of gentle hills and rocky terrain, are the perfect location.
Here too is the gateway to the Vedrette di Ries-Aurina Nature Park, the largest European nature resort with the most glaciers.
This village is the ideal destination for those who want to enjoy a healthy holiday, whether running, skiing or climbing, or simply enjoying the natural surroundings of Selva dei Molini. A host of different hikes to suit all levels and tastes allow you to discover the whole area, enjoying the peace and quiet of the region with its unique landscape and unspoiled nature.
