Lavin, Guarda & Ardez

Bergsteigerdorf

Winterwandern ab Guarda
Mountaineering villages are small, quiet places that have dedicated themselves to gentle tourism. Their great potential lies in their originality, the high-quality natural and cultural landscape and the versatile mountain sports opportunities. The initiative focuses on the careful use of the mountain environment, but also on strengthening regional value creation

History of the Bergsteigerdörfer

The initiative was launched in 2008 by the Austrian Alpine Club. In recent years, it has been successfully extended by the respective Alpine clubs to Germany, Italy and Slovenia. In 2021, six new mountaineering villages will receive the label, bringing the total number to 35. Among them is the mountaineering village of Lavin, Guarda & Ardez, which will become part of the initiative from 21/22 August.

Aim of the Bergsteigerdörfer

The careful treatment of the mountain environment, but also the strengthening of regional value creation is one of the most important goals of the initiative.
