Ötzi Flow Trail 

The Ötzi Flow Trail is the crowning finale of the longer (and more demanding) Ötzi Trails: This leads you from the Mauslochalm hut to Naturno and can be done as a small standalone tour. The trail is about 1 km long and serpentines its way through long turns all the way to the Waldschenke restaurant. We especially recommend it on a hot summer’s day, as the cool headwind in the shady forest trail will provide a much needed break from the heat.

Montiggler Lakes Tour

The Montiggler lakes are situated south of Bolzano, between Appiano and Caldaro. The fairly leisurely route leads you from Tramin to the Montiggler forest, via picturesque orchards and beautiful vineyards. On site you can choose between many forest roads and trails. Feel free to take a dip in the cool waters of the lake, should the temperatures become too much to bare!

Joch Tour Funes

This tour owes its name to the Jochkreuz and the Jochhöfe huts. Starting point is the idyllic village of St. Peter in the Villnösser Tal valley at the feet of the Geislerspitzen mountains. It takes you from the center of the village to the Gasthof Moar restaurant and then on to the Jochkreuz. After a consistent up & down you will reach the highest point of the tour: the Russiskreuz. You can then follow the trail back down the valley and reach St. Peter via St. Magdalena.

Barbarossa Trail

The trail starts at the Tarscher Alm hut, on the Latscher Nördersberg mountain. It is brand new as it only opened in 2019. You can easily reach this trail following first a paved and than a gravel road that leads up from the valley or by taking the cable car up. The Barbarossa trail is filled with roots, stones and drops. In short: it’s a freeride trail that is a class of its own.
