Winter hike to the Gampen Mountain Hut

Winter walk in the Puez-Odle Nature Park to a highly popular destination, the Gampen Mountain Hut in the Val di Funes valley

On this winter day, we decide to go to the Val di Funes valley and drive to the head of the valley, towards the Malga Zannes parking space (1,680 m a.s.l.) in Santa Maddalena di Funes, called St. Magdalena in Villnöss in German, where we park our car (subject to charge). On foot we start our tour to the Gampen Mountain Hut on the path no. 33, walking across the snowy Ciancenon Valley.

Across the forest, we continue walking the way up, past the Kirchwiesl and numerous signposts, and finally we reach the tree line. In the open country, there's the Gampen Mountain Hut in the Puez-Odle Nature Park. This walk is also a favourite route for those who love snow-shoeing.

This hut is also in winter a popular hiking destination. At the mountain hut you can also rent toboggans in order to enjoy the 3.5 km long valley run, starting directly at the mountain hut - it is one of the toboggan runs in the Valle Isarco. It is also suitable for kids. If you would like to walk back down, take the same trail for the way back. Our recommendation: Enjoy the sunset at the mountain hut and go back by sledge, a special experience also for kids.
