Hiking trails along the South Tyrolean Wine Road

From Salurn on the border with Trentino to Nals leads the South Tyrolean Wine Road, which connects 16 towns. On the approximately 150 kilometer long route you will find numerous hiking trails that invite you to explore the area and visit the wineries. If you are fit enough, you can also hike up to lofty heights from here. The Regglberg with the Trudner Horn, Schwarzhorn and Weißhorn is ideal for this. At the foot of the mountain you will be surprised by the Bletterbach Gorge, also called South Tyrol's Grand Canyon. Hikes through this natural monument from the Ice Age give an insight into the history of the formation of the Dolomites, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Hiking between palm trees and mountains

Passing imposing castles and estates, the route leads to a very special natural spectacle, the ice holes at the foot of the Gandberg mountain south of Eppan. This is a geological peculiarity that causes icicles to form on boulders here at an altitude of around 500 meters, even in summer. The mystical place is the perfect destination for easy hiking tours. An easy circular trail with a length of 6.5 kilometers can be completed in about 2:45 hours. Afterwards, there is still enough time for a swim at the lake or a visit to a castle.
