Self-guided Panorama Hiking in the Vinschgau 8-days

The most beautiful spots in South Tyrol

In the Vinschgau-region South Tyrol probably presents itself from its most beautiful angle: picturesque Waalwege-paths across blooming apple plantations, a unique culture in the mountain villages and quaint alp huts offering traditional cuisine on your rest from hiking. Discover the magical alleyways of the Medieval village of Mals, before you dive even deeper into the mountain world of the Vinschgau, always accompanied by stunning long-distance views and the lush green valley below you. Past historic ruins and the world-famous Churburg castle, you ascend high up into the national park 'Stilfserjoch', in the evening you relax by strolling through characteristic villages such as Schluderns and Burgeis. Over a glass of the renowned South Tyrolean wine and by tasting the regional specialties you get to experience the hospitality of this beautiful hiking region up close

Tour character: Level 2

You always walk on well-maintained hiking paths, along the typical Waalwege-paths and in parts also on forest roads. For the in parts longer ascents and walking times of up to 5 hours a good basic fitness level is recommended.

    Arrival in Mals

    Discover the alleyways of this tranquil Vinschgau market town and marvel at the numerous towers in the sunniest place of South Tyrol.

  • Day 2

    Mals – Schluderns 5hrs 14km | +600m -700m

    Along the most beautiful Waalweg-paths you ascend into the mountaineers‘ village Matsch gurgling watercourses accompany your route.

    Schluderns – Taufers 4 hrs 11km | +450m -150m

    After a visit to Glurns, the smallest town in the Alps ascend high up into the 'Stilfserjoch‘ national park. Past the natural musical experience of the 'Wooden-Xylophone‘ walk through the primal fir tree forest and reach the idyllic mountain village of Taufers. The Romanic 'Haufendorf‘ is characterized by houses huddling densely together along the steeply rising mountain sides. Today while you are walking you are less than a kilometre away from the Swiss state border.

    Today the queen’s stage of your hiking week is upon you. Past traditional mountain farms you ascend to the ridge Tellajoch, where an impressive mountain world reveals itself to you with a panoramic view on the 360°-viewing platform. The descent leads you down to Schlinig, from there, a short bus ride takes you to Burgeis. For a shorter tour to Burgeis we recommend the so-called 'Stundenweg‘ via the hamlet Schleis.

    Enjoy a relaxing day of rest or embark on a beautiful loop tour past the Schliniger Alps to a roaring waterfall.

Extensively explore the adventure path Watles before gliding leisurely by cable car back down into the valley.

    Burgeis – St. Valentin 4 to 4.5hrs 12km | +350m -600m

    From Prämajur through shady forests all the way to the Brugger-alps where we highly recommend you sample traditional Vinschgau delicacies.

  • Day 7

    St. Valentin – Mals 4hrs 10km | +450m -350m

    Across the largest alluvial fan of the Alps, the 'Malser Haide‘, you proceed across blooming meadows and past sleepy farm houses uphill into the little mountain village of Planeil.
