Winter hike from Valles to the Fane Alpine village

The pleasant tour takes us from Valles to one of the most charming Alpine mountain hut villages of South Tyrol, Malga Fane

From the parking space of the skiing area Jochtal in Valles (1,370 m a.s.l.) we walk straight on towards the head of the valley, on the path that parallels the cross-country ski trail, to the Kurzkofelhütte hut (where you can rent toboggans). From this hut we follow the "Milchweg" (Milk Trail) towards the Fane Alpine village, crossing the snow-covered conifer forest, conveying a special atmosphere.

The next slightly steeper section we overcome on the forest trail, be cautions as this path is also used for tobogganing. After some hairpin bends and behind a huge rock, there is a snow-covered valley basin, in the heart of which lies the Fane Alpine village.

The lovely mountain huts and the little church with its wooden steeple convey a romantic feeling without peer. A mountain hut is open also in winter, offering delicious treats for your palate. Lucky those who took a toboggan, riding down without any effort.
