HIGH MOUNTAIN TRAIL IN THE SARENTALER ALPS, SOUTH TYROL

The Hufeisen (Horseshoe) Tour

The Hufeisen Tour is a seven-day hike through the Sarntaler Alps. For the mountaineers it passes through a very rustic area that has largely been left to nature, the like of which is now scarce in South Tyrol.

The route runs in the heart of South Tyrol over alpine terrain, past lush meadows and alpine pastures, over summits and passes and along little-travelled and unspoilt pathways. Hikers and climbers are rewarded with fantastic views of the UNESCO World Natural Heritage Site of the Dolomites, and of the Zillertal Alps, Stubaier Alps, Ötztal Alps and into the Ortler region and the Brenta Group. The classic horseshoe tour starts in the eastern Val Sarentino/Sarntal Alps, covers 7 or 8 stages and runs in an anti-clockwise direction. The route can, however, be completed in reverse. Apart from this, the horseshoe tour can also be accessed and accomplished from several different locations.
