Do you fancy a family adventure? Do you fancy family-friendly mountain bike routes with great highlights for the little ones but also for the grown-ups? Do you fancy family-run accommodation and businesses that know perfectly what parents and children need? Then you've come to the right place. Because Olang is South Tyrol's active family village #1. The Italian influence here in the Puster Valley is omnipresent and has also shaped the hearty family concept: La famiglia, die Familie, the family, is above everything here, and is the pacemaker for the region's range of activities.
Olang offers you and your family the perfect natural setting and playground. Although the alpine village lies at the foot of the Dolomites, the landscape on the flank of the Kronplatz is not rugged and pale, but gentle and lush green. Here, the ascents and descents are not too steep, the trails are flowing and can also be ridden by beginners. Here you open your front door and find yourself in the middle of untouched nature. A paradise for children, a paradise for parents. The best thing to do is to get the whole family, including all the kids, granny and grandpa, and come to the green Puster Valley for an active, nature-loving family adventure holiday!
There is an incredible amount to discover on a biking holiday in the Puster Valley. Children encounter the elements and untouched nature in a playful way and can try out new sports. For families and mountain bike beginners, the Puster Valley offers easier tours for the whole family that can be mastered safely and guarantee a first sense of achievement. Many unpaved roads and paths away from traffic set the perfect conditions for family tours with the little ones. Steeper adrenaline adventures on the Kronplatz and highlight tours of the region await the older kids and the parents, while the grandparents can enjoy the gentle cycle paths, the numerous e-bike routes or the hiking routes through the woods of Olang. The active offer of Olang, which lies in the heart of the Fanes-Sennes-Prags Nature Park, is varied and the distances are short: all family excursion destinations are quick and easy to reach. Simply easy.
Trail & Nature can also be experienced by young MT-bikers around Olang. Here kids, teens and beginners can gain their first real trail experience on the flowing Gassl Trail. Especially the first part of the trail, which leads from the Kronplatz mountain station to the middle station of the Olang I&II cable car. That part of the trail is very easy (blue) and can be ridden by younger mountain bikers with ease. Kids and teens can also gain great experience in the MTB practice area of the Kids Area Summer. Here, the whole family will have a great time!
And if you forget to bring a helmet, a protector or even the mini-MTB, the experienced staff of the two bike shops & bike rentals in Mittelolang and Oberolang will be happy to help out.
