How to make your walking holidays in South Tyrol unforgettable

A couple of suggestions for your hikes

If you are planning a walking holiday in South Tyrol, there are two destinations you may want to add to your to-see list: the Fanes-Senes-Braies Nature Park and the Vedrette di Ries-Aurina Nature Park with its numerous 3,000ers. Luckily enough, both are situated in the vicinity of our hotel in the Val Pusteria/Pustertal valley. Expect a wealth of hiking trails of different levels of difficulty, all offering an unforgettable view of the Dolomites – UNESCO world heritage. While you are here in the Val Pusteria/Pustertal valley, make sure you do not miss the Three Peaks of Lavaredo. You can get there on foot from Sesto Pusteria on the 3-hour itinerary that starts at the entrance of the Val Fiscalina valley, or, if you prefer a less demanding route, from Lake Misurina.

Family hike: the marmot trail

The nature of South Tyrol tells fascinating stories to anyone who listens. For holidaymakers travelling with the whole family there is a real treat: the marmot trail. On a walk along the mountain pastures and the lush vegetation around Chienes/Kiens you can hear these lovely friends whistling and observe them in their natural habitat. The adventure begins in Corti-Glenke, continues to the spectacular Moarhof mountain farm at 1,883 metres, where you can taste delicious South Tyrolean products, and continues past the Grünbacher mountain farm to the crystal-clear Lake Grünbach. If you continue up the path, the children can search for the marmot caves and they will be amazed when they see the cross at 2,438 meters above sea level: the Putzenhöhe. What are you waiting for? The Bonfanti, your hotel in Val Pusteria/Pustertal awaits you with many exciting destinations!

Round hike: Getzenberger Höfeweg

What could be better than exploring the idyllic nature around our hotel near Chienes/Kiens and discovering old mountain farms? Our adventure today starts at Café Treyen, next to the Pustertaler Straße, where the route is marked "Höfeweg". After only a short time along field paths, the first typical farms appear at the edge of the forest. Along the little church and the contemplation path you will first reach the Radmüller farm and then the Hofer farm. Who cannot help being captivated by the timeless atmosphere of thse old farmhouses? And if you are a little hungry after this great walk, take the opportunity to stop at one of the traditional inns of these rustic villages and let yourself be seduced by our regional culinary delights.  The same traditional flavours that distinguish the dishes of our chef. Where there is adventure and pleasure, there is also Bonfanti!
