Directions

Europa High-Altitude Trail 2 is subdivided into three main sections. The Wipptal High-Altitude Trail starts in Innsbruck and ends at the Brenner pass. The second section is the actual Europa High-Altitude Trail and leads from the Brenner pass to Brixen in Valle Isarco (Eisacktal). The third section is the Dolomite High-Altitude Trail No. 2 which leads from Brixen to Feltre in the province of Belluno.

We will cover and describe only those stages of Europa High-Altitude Trail 2 which are within South Tyrol. The South Tyrol section extends from the Landshuter Europa Hütte in Val di Vizze (Pfitschtal) to the Pisciadù Hütte in Gader valley.

Walkers intending to cover the Europa High-Altitude Trail 2 in its entirety will definitely need to set aside 10 days for this endeavour. Excellent psychological as well as physical fitness and stamina are an absolute must! There are a number of sections which demand absolute surefootedness and a head for heights, a sense of orientation and mountain experience. The trail offers a number of staging posts. Shelters or hotels/guest houses should be booked beforehand to ensure comfortable overnight accommodation and to enable the wardens or proprietors to plan in advance.
