Moos in Passeier

The Location

Moos in passeier is quietly embedded at the end of the Passeier valley.

It usually welcomes hikers and mountain lovers, but once a year the locals embrace and welcome the colourful crowd of extreme boaters, with a huge scope to provide many more mountain activites right on its door step. 


where to sleep

At the event place (Sportplatz Moos in Passeier) we have a campsite spot for the participants. The place is  simply a field  with sanitary facilities.

If you are looking for something more comfortable the valley is full of B&B and hotels.

We can also recommend Camping Zögghof. The 2015 built four-star campsite, embedded in a beautiful mountain setting in nearby St. Leonhard in Passeier.

Entry requirements for Italy to the sport event
For the journey to the event, each participant will receive a confirmation of participation in this sport event by email, and at the moment all participants in the event require a negative corona test (PCR or rapid test) that is not older than 48 hours, or a vaccination confirmation. This also applies to participants from Italy! This allows entry into Italy without quarantine. As the organizer, we will also provide free tests for Friday evening. Furthermore, all legal requirements for pandemic containment apply at the event, which are specified by the Autonomous Province of Bolzano at this point in time. The participants themselves have to know the entry regulations of their own country for the return journey.


For known reasons, we will not organize a party.
On Saturday evening we will provide a campfire (take comfortable chairs with you) so that the participants can spend a cozy evening together with beer and chips.
