Simply aim for the heights! Head up to mountain refuges, summit crosses, the start of the piste. Look across to the chain of mountains on the horizon and down towards the valley. Across the tops of forests and expanses of meadows. Simply follow the call of the Dolomites, hiking, cycling or skiing – tobogganing, cross-country skiing or snowboarding! And take the time once in a while to stop, wonder, and reflect. The mountain pastures and refuges of Obereggen in the Val d'Ega will give you that unique lofty feeling, too! The will of the Latemar to send adventure your way is unflagging. Obereggen is acutely aware of the value and beauty of nature: considerable attention is therefore paid to environmental protection and sustainability. All year round – time and again! Yes, in Obereggen you can really rise above it all.

Mindful.Latemar is the first immersive Mindfulness trail in the Alps. Mindful.Latemar is located in Obereggen along the circular trail on the Golfrion mountain at the foot of the Dolomites at an altitude of 1872 metres. The trail includes 18 Mindfulness exercises in a special place that is meant to be an example of rebirth and resilience after it was hit by storm Vaia in November 2018. The course was conceived by Wellbeing Psychologist and Mindfulness Instructor Dr Thomas Bernagozzi. Through experiential learning and meditation techniques, it will be possible to learn how to retrain one's attention and create a moment of care and wellbeing for oneself and those around us. The novelty of this project is that it can also be done independently after installing the free app.
Mindful.Latemar can be reached by taking the Ochsenweide cable car from Obereggen. Alternatively, it can be reached by taking the cable car and chairlift from Predazzo to Passo Feudo or by taking the Latemar chairlift from Pampeago and continuing on foot for about an hour along the Latemar.ium trails. www.mindful.latemar.it
