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

  • 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.

    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.

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.

  • 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.
