Tobogganing in the Dolomites – charming sledge rides to San Vigilio
Winter sports at Plan de Corones offer so much more than just skiing and snowshoeing. In the surroundings of San Vigilio, you may enjoy many cheerful toboggan rides and discover this exceptional pleasure, which is suitable for young and old – especially for families. Tobogganing in the Dolomites is pure exuberance. However, if afterwards you wish to embark on a romantic tour, we recommend a horse sleigh ride through the white wonderland.
Several natural toboggan runs in San Vigilio
From the mountain station Cianross at 1,302 meters (accessible by ski lift), a beautiful toboggan run right next to the ski slopes takes you through the woods to the valley station. It offers you about 680 m of pure toboggan fun with an altitude difference of approximately 100 meters. Twice a week, you and your family may enjoy a night toboggan ride under floodlights, which is a truly exceptional experience while tobogganing in the Dolomites. You may rent toboggans directly at the cable car station and return them in the valley. At the meadow Manestrei, another highly recommended toboggan run starts (“Munt da Rina”), leading you to the parking lot at Wellschellen. It is 1.6 km long, with 180 altitude meters from the valley, and accessible on foot in half an hour. Here, you will have to bring your own toboggan from San Vigilio. From the Pederü Lodge, another two toboggan runs start, which take you to different alpine huts. The snow cat takes you to the starting point.
Enjoy the beauty of the region in a horse sleigh
Much more peaceful, but also more romantic, is horse-drawn sleigh ride through the winter wonderland at Plan de Corones. At the sound of the bells and wrapped up in thick blankets, you make your way around San Vigilio and lose track of time. The trips can be booked locally.
