Hiking in South Tyrol

Between the Dolomites and Ortler

Mountain holiday between the Dolomites and Ortler

Did you know that only about three percent of South Tyrol's land area is populated? Around 80 percent of the area is made up of meadows, forests, pastures and high mountains. These include the famous Dolomites, dazzling names like the spectacular Drei Zinnen and the Rosengarten glowing in the evening.

South Tyrol's landmarks are the Schlern or the almost 4.000-meter-high Ortler. The region is therefore perfect for hiking enthusiasts and mountain addicts. On a farm holiday in South Tyrol, you usually start a mountain tour directly from the farm, equipped with the best insider tips from the farmers.

 

Land of pastures and peaks
More than 16.000 km of marked hiking trails meander through South Tyrol. Leisurely irrigation channel paths and blossom trail hikes through apple orchards await you in spring. Summer is the best time for high-altitude trails, via ferrata, summit hikes and Alpine tours. Extensive Alpine tours and Törggelen hikes through vineyards are recommended in autumn, and picturesque snowshoe hikes in winter.
A total of nine mountain groups are spread throughout South Tyrol. The Sesvenna Group, the Ortler Group and the Ötztal Alps in the west border the Sarntal and Nonstal Alps in the south. The Stubai and Zillertal Alps are further north and the Rieserferner Group is in the extreme east of South Tyrol. The famous Dolomites, part of the UNESCO World Heritage, stretch across the entire south-east of the region. Only those who have seen the mountains of South Tyrol up close know how fascinating they are.

 

Open the farm door and off you go
A farm is an ideal starting point for your hiking holiday in South Tyrol. As soon as you set off, the morning sun shines on your face, and feelings of happiness are released step by step. The hiking trails are well signposted and marked. On the way you will encounter imposing fortresses and castles, grazing cows and whistling marmots. Farmed Alpine pastures and rural 'Schankbetrieb' taverns invite you to stop and linger. Alpine refuges make the ideal base for mountain tours in the high mountains. Many starting points can be easily reached by chairlift or cable car. At the top, all you have to do is open your eyes and enjoy the view.
