Hiking in Val Venosta

From an atmospheric walk in the valley to the adventurous climbing of Mt. 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 in Trafoi, a hike to the Resia Pass to see the source of the Adige river and a high alpine tour, e.g. to Mt. Cima Beltovo. However, the most adventurous experience certainly is to climb "King Ortles", the highest peak in South Tyrol. Just hire a mountain guide!
