Fane Alpine Village

The most beautiful alpine village in South Tyrol, the Malga Fane in the Valle di Valles valley, is located at 1,739 m a.s.l

In the Fundres Mountains there is an excursion destination that is equally popular in summer and winter: the Fane Alpine Village. In summer, the South Tyrolean Milk Path, which tells of milk production in the country, leads to the alp. From the car park in Valles, a one-hour hike takes you to the Fane Alpine Village, and when you have reached the last bend, the view opens up on the ensemble of a chapel, residential and hay huts, cattle sheds, and three alpine huts that invite you to stop for a break and to enjoy delicious food. The history of the place dates back to the Middle Ages, when a military hospital was built here for people suffering from the plague and cholera.

The only reminder of that time are the buildings, which are now located in a unique mountain world that offers relaxation for body and soul. The entire area covers 850 hectares, a picture-book alpine pasture from which you can also reach Mt. Picco della Croce (3,134 m a.s.l.) or Lake Marmo.

And how to reach the Fane Alpine Village (Fane Alm)? Either in a one-hour hike from the car park at the end of the Valles Valley or by shuttle bus. Also the way back from the mountain tour to the Marmo Lake near Valles leads past the buildings. In winter, however, after the winter hike to the Fane Alpine Village the return is interesting thanks to the descent on the sledge: Here you find a 1.3 km long natural tobbogan run, one of the toboggan runs in the Valle Isarco.
