Mountains and hiking

Cosy walks, circular trails, high alpine tours and fixed-rope routes - the opportunities for hikes are ideal in the Val Pusteria and its side valleys in South and East Tyrol.

In the Val Pusteria and its side valleys - from the Zillertal Alps to the High Tauern, the Rodengo Alpine Pastures across the Plan de Corones until the Braies, Sesto and Lienz Dolomites - the alpine world along the Aurino, Drava and Isel rivers attracts many alpinists.
