Hiking in South Tyrol

The north of Italy is simply a paradise for hiking and trekking. More than 13,000 km of natural, marked hiking trails lead through South Tyrol. While hiking in the UNESCO World Heritage Site, expect fantastic views of magnificent peaks, rock pinnacles and craggy towers in the Dolomites. Waalwege trails along historic irrigation canals and diverse themed trails with information about local products, legends, and nature are perfect for families. While hiking in the vineyards and in vast plateaux like the Seiser Alm, treat yourself to a gentle stroll with a stop by cosy Alpine huts, inns, and wineries. Multi-day tours, like the Merano High Mountain Trail (Meraner Höhenweg) or the Dolomite Alpine Ridgeway (Dolomiten Höhenweg), which leads through several Italian provinces, are the right choice for those who want to experience nature over a longer period of time.
