Winter hiking tour on Alpe di Siusi

Following the Hans-and-Paula-Steger-trail across the magic snow landscape of the Alpe di Siusi, enjoying great views of the surrounding Dolomites.

The Alpe di Siusi is a true paradise for winter hiking tours. Its gentle, sunny landscape offers plenty of hiking trails with moderate ascents perfect for comfortable winter walkings or more challenging winter hiking tours. The most popular are the hiking tour to the Molignon mountain hut and the following hiking tour along the Hans-and-Paula-Steger-trail from Compaccio to Saltria.

Gaining height on the Alpe di Siusi Cable Car we can see very clearly how the snow layer gets thicker and thicker and the shadow cone of Mount Sciliar finally gives way to the sunny landscape of the Alpe di Siusi. Arrived at the mountain station, we walk to the church, the starting point of our hiking tour.

The Hans-and-Paula-Steger-trail, leading from Compaccio to Saltria, exhibits only a moderate altitude difference and is perfect for an easy and relaxing winter hiking tour. Since most of the skipists cross our trail route on bridges we only have to be aware of some horse sleighs. Our trail crosses the asphalted road Compaccio-Saltria before the Hotel Steger-Dellai and leads through a forest up to a small hill with a spectacular view of the Sassolungo mountain range.

At the point where the Hans-and-Paula-Steger-trail branches off towards south, we follow the signpost “Fußweg nach Saltria”. At this last section of our hiking tour we enjoy beautiful views of Mount Monte Piz and the Puez-Odle mountain range.
