Winter hike to the Malga dei Dossi Hut

This easy winter hiking tour leads through the beautiful snowy landscape of the Valle dei Dossi valley near Riva di Tures.

Driving to Riva di Tures (Rein in Taufers), we cross the village until we reach the parking space of the Valle dei Dossi valley (Knuttental), where we leave our car. From here, we start our hiking tour through the valley to the Malga dei Dossi (Knuttenalm), a mountain hut, crossing the beautiful Vedrette di Ries-Aurina Nature Park. Despite the cold temperatures the small Rio Dossi stream is not frozen yet and its roaring accompanies us on most of our way.

A broad forest road leads us gently upwards until we soon reach a small plateau and continue our hiking tour enjoying breathtaking views of the surrounding snow-capped mountain peaks. From here, we hike upwards to the Malga dei Dossi at 1,922 m a.s.l., where we enjoy a hot drink.

The mountain hut is open also during the winter months. We decide to rent a sledge instead of going back by foot. If you would like to rent a sledge, you can give it back at the parking space, the starting point of this beautiful hike.
