It’s time for pure excitement during the summer for children between 6 and 12. The children taking part in the ‘Val Gardena Kids Active’ daily animation program running from June to September will learn all there is to know about the Dolomites, a treasure trove bursting with adventure and small natural works of art. Four days a week, children can dive into a world packed with incredible experiences! What do cows on a farm eat? Is climbing difficult? Why do the woods smell so good?
Children never stop asking questions as it is. The active weeks will provide them with all the answers they are looking for, in the guise of fun. Meanwhile, the sporty guides will accompany them throughout the day. Bring on the summer!

Mucé cun la ferata
This new kind of game let’s you experience engaging stories in real life where you and your teammates are asked to solve riddles and reveal mysteries.
You are Russian prisoners building the railroad that is intended to help enforce the front lines of the Austro-Hungarian Empire during the World War I. It is almost finished, but you have enough of this miserable life. Fortunately, one day you hear someone talking about an escape plan using the railroad itself. It seems that a Russian friend of yours managed to modify the engine so that you would be able to start it.
