Hiking in Val Venosta

From an atmospheric walking tour in the valley to the adventurous climbing of mount Ortles, the Val Venosta meets everybody’s expectations.

The Val Venosta is as manifold as its hiking possibilities: you are spoilt for choice between a family picnic tour to the three holy wells („Heilige Drei Brunnen“) in Trafoi, a hiking tour to the Resia Pass to see the source of river Adige and a high alpine tour, for example to the Cima Beltovo. However, the most adventurous experience certainly is to climb mount Ortles, the highest peak in South Tyrol. Just hire a mountain guide, it’s definitely worth the effort!
