As one of the valleys in South Tyrol with the most areas of water, Ultental valley is home to around 44 lakes and traditional medicinal springs. The impressive Hartungen waterfall in St. Nikolaus is worth a visit, too. This is just a few minutes’ walk away from the nearly 1,000-year-old and over 30-metre-high ancient larch trees. Between St. Pankraz and St. Walburg are the four so-called ‘Ultner Badlen’ baths: Mitterbad, Bad Lad, Lotterbad and Überwasser. The tradition of farm baths goes back hundreds of years in the Alpine area, and these bathing cures at mineral-rich water sources are supposed to soothe aches, pains and rheumatism. The bathing spots soon developed into an important meeting point for the rural population. Empress Sissi also had faith in the healing powers of these farm baths and frequented the 'Ultener Badeln'.

The annual Ultner Höfelauf with its fantastic routes makes for a really special race experience. This foodie race combines sport with cuisine and an idyllic mountain landscape.

Every year in July, the valley holds the Ulten Farmstead Run, or 'Ultner Höfelauf' race. This starts in the village of Kuppelwies, and features a number of different routes. The classic route with a length of 17 kilometres leads past old farmhouses to St. Gertraud, the ancient larch trees and ends up in Kuppelwies again. The much shorter 'Volkslauf' race involves a circuit of around eight kilometres to the Zoggler Stausee reservoir and runs from Kuppelwies to St. Walburg and back again. Both stretches have one thing in common: a fantastic mountain backdrop amidst one of the most original valleys in South Tyrol. The Ultner Höfelauf race earns its reputation as a race for foodies, as after the race there are a variety of stands offering delicious food from Ultental valley. This culinary programme, along with a wide variety of children’s activities, makes the race a popular event for gourmets and sports fans.
