Ultimo valley - Alta Val di Non
Ultimo valley stretches over 40 km from the mouth of the Valsura River at Fontana Bianca to the narrow Ronzino Gorge in Lana. In addition to the village of San Pancrazio, the valley comprises the community of Ultimo with its hamlets of Santa Gertrude, San Nicolò, Santa Valburga and Pracupola.
This stunning secluded valley with its villages of San Felice, Lauregno, Senale and Proves was until recently only accessible by foot over the mountain passes of the Palade Pass and the Mendola Pass. A road joining the Ultimo Valley with Alta Val di Non was opened in 1998. The road starts between the villages of San Pancrazio and Santa Valburga and is only a 20-minute drive to the Alta Val di Non.
This area dates back to the 7th century when the region was conquered by the Goths. Later on the region was attacked by the Bavarians, and during the Middle Ages the settlements belonged to the lands of the Weingarten Convent of Regensburg. The convent subsequently gave the land to the farmers.
The Ultimo valley-Alta Val di Non holiday region is located in the Stelvio Pass Nature Park, which was founded in 1935. Don't miss the "Lahnersäge" Nature Park House in Santa Gertrude which houses an exhibition on forests and wood.
This holiday region is surrounded by dense forests and green meadows. In summer the region offers 700 km of hiking paths and a Nordic walking park. You can also enjoy an outdoor pool, a horse riding school, a climbing garden and much more.
In winter, the Ultimo valley-Alta Val di Non holiday region awaits you with the Schwemmalm ski resort, featuring a cable car for 8 people and 25 km of ski slopes, two cross-country tracks, an ice-skating rink in Pracupola, and a toboggan run.
