Lake Reschensee to Meran Self-guided 7days

Blooming Vinschgau and South Tyrolean Wine Route

During your hiking week you will discover one of South Tyrol's most beautiful sections located between the Vinschgau region and the southern wine route, causing hikers hearts to leap for joy. The tour starts at the well-known Lake Reschensee, surrounded by marvellous mountain panorama and with a view onto the snow-covered Ortler-massif. The route leads you along fabulous high-altitude paths high above the fertile Vinschgau-valley towards Merano. Enjoy the view onto splendid vineyards and orchards, numerous castles and palaces along the way and amongst others Reinhold Messners Mountain Museum. The Mediterranean spa town of Merano with its thermal springs offers tremendous opportunities for relaxation.

Tour character - Walking: Level 2

You walk mainly on good walking paths, often on the so called ‘Waal paths’, ancient water systems as well as on paved sections. The paths are easy to walk, the route is undulating through lovely countryside, dotted with orchards and vineyards. Longer ascents only occur on two of the days.
