Hiking in the Isarco Valley

Happiness at high altitude

If you look around and savour the scenery with all your senses, you will come to the same conclusion as us: happiness cannot be bought. Because surely there is no need to buy it when you can explore the mountains! What could be better?

Panoramic tip!
The hike to Rifugio Tribulaun is demanding, but well worth it. It is in a unique natural setting and the view is amazing!

here's a tip!

Three is the perfect number.
And these three destinations are free... You just need to be a guest at Hotel Wieser ;-)

Pontelletto lake

 Malga Pontelletto above Le Cave,  4 hrs,  8.1 km,  780 hm,   Medium difficulty
Path 14 is a mainly steep one that takes you through the woods and past waterfalls, streams, pastures and ruins, all the way to the alpine lake (1850 m). About 15 minutes before you reach the lake, you come to the hut of the same name where you can enjoy delicious South Tyrolean dishes, sparkling juices, a nice cold blonde beer and a grappa with herbs.

Lake view tip!
Lake Pontelletto is one of the most beautiful lakes in the Alps, there is no doubt about it. It is quite a challenging route to do on foot or by e-bike, but it's well worth it!

Sunrise on the Cima di Stilves

 Passo di Pennes road (below the inn),  1.00 hrs,  2.6 km,  250 hm,   Medium difficulty
The Cima di Stilves is always at its most beautiful. At 2422 m high, this giant holds everything in a mountainous embrace. It is easy to reach on path no. 14 and is therefore suitable for families, though it is also considered one of the most evocative places to be in the Upper Isarco Valley at sunrise. From up there you can see the entire valley, the side valleys, the Sarentine Alps, the Zillertal and Stubai Alps, and of course the Dolomites.

Via dei Castelli to Campo di Trens

 Hotel Wieser,  4.5 hrs,  16.2 km,  470 hm,   Medium difficulty
The circular hike leads from the hotel to Trens and along the Alta Via di Trens, taking you back in time to the 13th century. Pietra Castle can only be admired from the outside, with the exception of the restaurant. Tasso Castle, on the other hand, with its majestic walls, chemins de rondes, loopholes and underground rooms, can be seen with a guide.

Dawn tip!
With a thermos of herbal tea and our homemade granola bars, the sunrise on the Cima di Stilves, our local mountain, is even more beautiful!
