Straight to the adventure: Hiking tours in Val Senales in South Tyrol

In the Alpin Arena Senales you can easily become a summit hero. A few steps from the mountain station of the glacier cable car, a staircase leads to what is probably the most easily conquered three-thousand-metre peak in the world. Many hiking tours in Val Senales start in Kurzras and lead to bubbling streams, sparse larch forests and the eternal ice. Get your adventure!


8km - 4.00 h - 1.400 hm - medium

The trail starts at the Glacier Hotel Grawand at 3,212 metres above sea level. Once you reached the top with the glacier cable car, it is worth taking a detour to the "Iceman Ötzi Peak" viewing platform before the actual hike. Afterwards, the trail leads past the panorama restaurant of the Glacier Hotel Grawand.
After a 35-minute walk, hikers reach the glacier lake. From there, the trail continues to the "Bella Vista" refuge - at 2,845 metres above sea level. Below the hut terrace along the Plattensteig trail, the path continues downwards into the wide cirque. At the turnoff to the Palla Bianca, continue towards the valley along the secured 'Hüttenweg' trail. Finally, you pass a sparse larch forest and return to the valley floor near Maso Corto - at 2,011 meters.


4,1 km - 1.45 h - 430 hm - simple

The hike to the Lazaun plateau begins at Maso Corto, from where you follow the signs to the Langgrub valley. After passing a copper column indicating a cupola, the path leads alongside a stream into the valley. If you follow trail no. 11A, you climb over slopes to the inviting plateau. Once at the top, you should take some time to explore the landscape and, above all, enjoy the view. Out of consideration for the high moor, use the marked paths. Afterwards, the Lazaun Hut is a good place to stop for a bite to eat.

LARIX FERRATA & ALPIN TRAIL (from July to October)

1,8 km - 3.30 h - 410 hm - medium difficult

Attention climbing freaks: Since June there is the new via ferrata "Larix" (Latin for larch) and the parallel adventure hiking trail "Alpin Trail" in Maso Corto. The two trails cross at several points and so families, for example, can start together, some via the action-packed via ferrata and others via the challenging hiking trail.


2 km - 1.30 h - 400 hm - easy

A hike along the irrigation channel is ideal for the whole family. The route is pleasant and undemanding, follows the course of the water and allows you to explore nature and its beauty. This irrigation ditch is probably
as old as the Kurzhof in Maso Corto, which was first mentioned in a document dating back to around 300 A.D. and was managed by local farm labourers for more than 700 years. Furthermore, the canal was rehabilitated in 2021 and today presents itself in all its splendour.



From Maso Corto/Kurzras follow trail #3 up through a wooded section, past a scree slope and continue through the Oberbergtal valley up to the Stueteben over the increasingly rocky slopes to the Bella Vista mountain hut, with its stunning views. Or, if you lack the stamina, take a short-cut using the Roter Kofel chairlift.

Circular Trail im hinteren Eis

Surefootedness, freedom from vertigo and good physical condition are necessary - 3-4 hours hike

This circular trail (no. 5A + 3A) starting in Maso Corto or from the Bella Vista hut is spectacular, but requires a certain level of fitness and good footwear. From the ridge, northwest of the Teufelsegg chairlift mountain station, to Hinteres Eis, it offers unique views of the Weisskugel, all the way to the Dolomites, as well as over the entire rear Schnals Valley and Ötztal valley. 
The trail was built in memory of Monika and Michael Grüner, who were great friends of the Schnals mountains and in particular of the Bella Vista hut. Three resting places were built from the rocks on site and a summit book was installed in the Hintere Eis. The resting places are there to take a short break, relax and enjoy the view.
