Hiking tour from Resia to the source of the river Adige

The river Adige rises on the Passo Resia near the boarder to Austria.

We start our short but very interesting hiking tour at the parking space in the centre of the village Resia.

Above the centre of Resia, we follow trail no. 2 into the forest, which will directly lead us to the source of the river Adige, the biggest river in South Tyrol. In the beautiful larch forest we observe two cute but very shy squarrels. After a short walking time the signposts lead us down to a trail which branches off to the left and finally leads us to the source of the river Adige, which is marked very well.

After some time spent at the source, we start our way back and cross some very beautiful meadows offering great views of the parish church of Resia and Lake Resia. Finally arrived at our starting point, we are happy to have done this short but very beautiful and interesting hiking tour to the source of the river Adige.
