Hiking in the Isarco Valley – a pleasure for body and soul
If you wish to enjoy hiking in the Isarco Valley, you can look forward to a unique landscape and sheer endless hiking trails. Alone in the holiday region Alpe di Siusi, there are 450 kilometres of hiking paths waiting for you! You may choose among leisurely hikes to alpine lodges or challenging routes to the peaks of the Dolomites. Easy tours lead around Mount Bullaccia, Mount Calvario or to the Lake of Fiè. A more challenging option is offered by the Hans and Paula Steger Path. Experienced mountaineers may choose a mountain tour to the majestic Mount Sciliar.
A hiking vacation in South Tyrol offers marvellous views
A great hiking tip: A circular walk on the Alpe di Villandro, one of the largest alpine plateaus in Europe, where the spectacular panorama and the beautiful landscape will charm you. You may also take a tour to the huts and lodges around Latzfons and Villandro, where you can enjoy a tasty meal with South Tyrolean specialties. The Val Gardena is a paradise for hikers and offers a wonderful view of the pale mountains of the Dolomites. On the Geotrail Pufels you may learn more about the history of the earth or take the path from Selva di Gardena to the Puez Lodge. In the Funes Valley at the foot of the Dolomites, you will find another 33 circular routes, such as the circular walk around the Sas de Putia or the route around the idyllic irrigation pond Mesner Lacke.
Hiking holidays for foodies
For connoisseurs and gourmets, we recommend the Isarco Valley Chestnut Trail (60 km), also called Keschtnweg. You may tackle this path in short daily sections or take a multi-day trip with stops and breaks for Törggelen in various taverns. For the friends of Törggelen, the Villandro Törggele Path is an absolute must. This trail takes you on an easy hike through the village and to the adjoining vineyards.
