SUMMER BETWEEN NATURE AND GLACIERS

The bizarre alpine Schnals Valley is an insider tip in summer. If you want to enjoy authentic nature, experience historical farms and rustic alpine pastures and relax, then this is the place for you.

After summer skiing on the glacier has been discontinued for several years for environmental reasons. From June to August the Hochjochferner (Glacier) is treated as gently and sensitively as a patient. On particularly delicate places there are snow depots and large areas of the glacier are covered with special foils. In this way, the Val Senales Glacier Cableways guarantee perfect slope conditions from September to May and make an active contribution to the protection of nature.

In midsummer, however, the glacier is now a popular destination for excursions. Nowhere else is it easier to conquer a real three-thousander. The glacier cable car overcomes more than a thousand metres in altitude in six minutes and takes guests from Maso Corto up to 3,212 metres. From there it's just under 40 metres to the mighty summit cross on Grawand peak (3,251 m), from where you can enjoy a breathtaking panoramic view - from the Dolomites to the Brenta Group high above Lake Garda, from the Ortler Group to the giants of the Engadine.
