The Caravan Park is open!


At the Caravan Park Senales you find yourself at the feet of the glacier

If you pull back the curtain of your mobile home and look towards the head of the valley, you will see it: the Val Senales Glacier in all its rugged beauty. Appreciated as a hiking, winter sports and retreat, it is much more than a must-see for summer camping in South Tyrol. It bears the traces of the Stone Age, shows the true face of nature, and is the scene of transhumance, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Enjoy your glacier camping adventure!


The Val Senales Glacier, also known as Giogo Alto  lies between the Val Senales in South Tyrol and the Venter Valley in the Alpi Venoste (Ötztal Alps). It stretches over 3 kilometres and measures 185 hectares, a small part of which is used as a ski area. Like all other glaciers, it is suffering the consequences of global warming. Therefore, great efforts are being made to protect the icy giant.


In summer, as the snow melts, the effects of climate change can be clearly seen on the Val Senales Glacier. Like all the ice giants on earth, it is also suffering from the constantly rising temperatures. In order to prevent further decline, the Val Senales Glacier is protected from the sun's rays with a fleece in areas that are particularly exposed. 


It was not only Ötzi who made the Val Senales Glacier famous. The centuries-old tradition of transhumance is also a highlight in the annual calendar. The sheep drive is an intangible UNESCO World Heritage Site and is a cause for celebration every late summer. When the shepherds drive thousands of sheep and goats over the Giogo Alto and Giogo Basso from Austria back into the valley, a festival takes place in Maso Corto and Vernago. And you can be there!
