Snowshoe hike in Valtina in the Val Passiria valley

Valtina in the Val Passiria valley is ideal for snowshoe hikes in winter, for example from the Jägerhof farm to Vannes and to the Seeberg Mountain Hut.

Starting at the Jägerhof farm we follow the Monte Giovo pass road into the valley for about 500 m, until the sharp turn, where the walking path branches to the right and leads us to the Wanser Farm in about 25 minutes. For a short section we follow the cross-country ski track out of the valley, cross the stream and take the path no. 12 to the Seiler Valley.

After about 1.5 km we reach the branch to the Seeberg Mountain Hut (Seeberg Alm) and walk uphill through the forest until the mountain hut at 1,700 m asl. Here we enjoy a fantastic panoramic view on the surrounding alpine world and the Monte Giovo pass road at the northern valley side. Now there are two possibilities at choice: Either we carry on uphill to the Vannes Mountain Hut (Wanser Alm), or we go back until the branch below of the Sailer Farm. We take the second possibility and follow then the winter hiking trail at the bottom of the valley.

It leads past the Auerhof inn, where we make a stop. Just before the ski slope (Stockit Winterpark) we take the path no. 18 which leads uphill to the Jägerhof again. This snowshoe hike promises quiet and plenty of nature with rather little effort. The view on the snowy landscape, meadows, woods and farms is a blessing for body and soul.
