Hiking holidays in Valle Isarco
There are not many idyllic and tranquil mountain villages left in South Tyrol and in the Dolomites: Lüsen, the dreamy village nestling at the head of the Valley of Lüsen near Brixen is one of the few. Here song thrushes, goldfinches and robins still sing, old farms adorn the village, and in the summer the aroma of hay fills the narrow streets. At Lüsen nature remains intact, the hotel buildings and the infrastructure are still compact. The villagers did not build a swimming pool but, with a view to the needs of families, constructed a natural outdoor swimming pond fed by the spring waters of Lüsen Alp. There are no clubs or pubs in the village. The inhabitants of Lüsen, who prefer traditional dress to suits, love their folk music with alphorn, zither and accordion. Tradition is lived with joy and passion. Somehow, time stood still in Lüsen. Guests are not distracted but find their way back to themselves in this spot of untouched nature in South Tyrol.
