From the central mountain ridge, replete with vineyards and chestnut groves, to lush mountain pastures and alpine meadows and from mountain forests all the way up to the bizarre rock spires of the Dolomites and the glaciated three-thousanders of the Stubai and Zillertal Alps: The charms of the Valley of Trails
are well suited to exploration on foot.
The Funes Valley’s Odle/Geisler Massif
, (declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2009) – especially its Adolf Munkel Trail
– represents one of the classic hikes to be undertaken during a holiday in the Isarco Valley. Equally worthwhile are the Seven Lake Circuit
(Sieben-Seen-Runde) in the Ridanna/Ridnauntal Valley, which leads physically fit mountaineers up into high-alpine terrain, and the Fane Alm hiking tour
to the Brixner Hütte mountain hut in the Gitschberg Jochtal holiday region,
which offers a quintessential experience of idyllic alpine pastures and mountain panoramas.
