Val di Fosse

The Val di Fosse Valley (Pfossental) is situated in the heart of the Texel Group Nature Park and is known as an area where many wild animals live.

A very steepy road takes you to the Val di Fosse Valley, a tributary valley of the Val Senales Valley (Schnalstal).
There you can walk along a didactical path with many interesting stations, which is part of the Merano High Route. You can enjoy amazing views of the Texel Group mountains and very likely also get to see some golden eagle, ibex or chamois.

Nowadays the huts are open from May to November. In the last centuries the Eishof hut (2071m) was one of the highest permanent settlements in the Alpine region. From there you can get in the Val Passiria Valley (Passeiertal) passing by the Rifugio Petrarca (Stettiner Hütte) at 2875m and the Passo Gelato (Eisjöchl).

The Val di Fosse Valley offers a unique nature experience for all kind of hikers.
