Activ holidays with your dog

Whether in summer or winter, the Dolomites region Alpe di Siusi with its endless Alpine pastures and forests is perfect for a vacation with your dog. Short and longer walks are available directly from the hotel. You are welcome to take a morning walk together with landlady Patrizia and our two dogs Rusty and Bella, three times a week.

Alpe di Siusi is a Nature Park, protected landscape area and part of the UNESCO World Heritage. The villages are surrounded by woods with a large population of game. For these reasons, there are a few things to keep in mind when you have a dog with you:

  • Leash laws require dogs to be kept on a leash no longer than 1.5 meters. A muzzle must also be carried.
  • Dogs are allowed to use the Alpe di Siusi cable car and other chairlifts (partly against a fee). However for safety reasons they must wear a muzzle and be kept on a leash. For small dogs, you can borrow boxes free of charge at the Alpe di Siusi cable car Valley Station.
  • Dogs can ride for free on the shuttle buses to the Alpe di Siusi cable car. Public transport buses however charge a pet fare (except for guide dogs and small dogs up to 5 kg). Leash and muzzle are compulsory on all busses.
  • You will find dog toilets with plastic bags to dispose of your dog's waste in various places. It is obligatory to carry along a supply of bags and to remove any excrements immediately. Please do not leave the bags lying around in the nature.
  • Please pick up after your dog, especially around farms and pastures, where local farmers cultivate food and fodder.
  • Dogs are not allowed in playgrounds, school yards, cemeteries and other signposted areas.
  • Special care should be taken when encountering livestock. Walk between the animals and your dog, leading it away from the animals. Please do not run, the animals react to fast movements. Walk slowly and keep an eye on them. If they come towards you, unleash your dog. Without you, the dog is faster and can get away safely. At the same time the animals are distracted and you can leave the danger zone calmly and quickly.
  • On the Alpe di Siusi you will find beautiful trails that you can explore with your dog in winter. Please do not walk on the cross-country skiing trails, as they are reserved for cross-country skiers.


Rabies vaccination is only obligatory for pets brought across the state border. For dogs brought to South Tyrol from other Italian provinces and regions, rabies vaccination is not mandatory.

In South Tyrol, and generally in Italy, dog owners are liable for damages caused by their pet: A dedicated insurance is not compulsory, but highly recommended.
