Mountaineering in South Tyrol
Hiking and climbing beyond the 3,000 m limit! Of course, also untroubled hikes from mountain hut to mountain hut are pleasant experiences, as well as easy summit tours to rewarding viewpoints. Often you get another point of view already some meters above the bottom of the valley. You see the highest mountain tops of the Alps or the rugged rock faces of the Dolomites. It’s a super experience if you see all that sitting next to the cross on the summit of one of these high mountains and above you, there is only the blue sky.
South Tyrol is the perfect place for alpine tours beyond the 3,000 m limit. Famous names as Löffler, Similiaun and Ortler are well-known among mountain lovers and all these mountains are reachable. Obviously you have to be quiet fit, because you usually have to manage more than 1,500 of difference in altitude and often walk about 8 hours.
