The village of San Genesio on Monzoccolo is a sunny terrace above Bolzano with panoramic views of the Dolomites. West of San Genesio is Salto, Europe’s largest larch high plateau. Salto invites to hikes, cycling tours and hacks on Haflinger horses. There are plenty of Haflingers in the riding stables of San Genesio and surrounding area! Monzoccolo happens to be the home of these blonde horses.

A highlight on the Salten are the so-called "Men of Stones", which can be reached on a circular hike from the Schermoos car park near Valas/Flaas.
