Winter hiking in Valles/Vals will leave you wanting more!
The hotelier couple, Dietmar and Monika, and their family can confirm it: South Tyrol’s mountains are addictive. On the winter hiking and snowshoe trails around Valles/Vals, you can enjoy winter to the fullest. The snowshoe’s large tread surface does not sink into the snow much, making it possible to hike across longer distances while saving your energy. The cleared trails are ideal for winter walks through the snow-covered countryside. We recommend a leisurely hike to the Fane Alpine village or a snowshoe tour to Giogo d'Asta/Astjoch, with a magnificent view of the Dolomite peaks. If you don’t want to go into the mountains on your own, you can take part in the guided snowshoe hikes offered by the local tourist association for a small fee.
Stop here for refreshments & experience South Tyrolean hut culture
What could be nicer than sitting in a warm hut after skiing, tobogganing, or winter hiking in Valles/Vals and quenching your thirst with a warm drink? Mmm… Order an apple strudel or a hearty Brettljause (snack board) and the day is perfect.
In the Rio Pusteria/Gitschberg Jochtal holiday region, there are many huts and mountain restaurants that are worth a stop in winter. We recommend the rustic Fane Alpine village above Valles/Vals. Several Alpine huts serve hearty South Tyrolean food in small, quaint “Stuben” (parlours). Traditional dishes such as Kasnocken (small pasta cheese dumplings), Kaiserschmarrn (scrambled pancake), or Topfenstrudel (quark strudel) are rarely prepared in such a delicious way in South Tyrol.
