Turn-by-turn directions

From Maso Corto/Kurzras (2,011 m a.s.l), archaeological trail no. 3 leads you through a high Alpine landscape to the refuge lodge Bella Vista which really lives up to its name with its unforgettable panoramis view.  After a short break - we recommend the dumplings - you have a choice: A detour to Hintereisferner (no. 3A) or to Giogo Alto (no. 3B) is  well worth it or you can follow the trail along the Hintereisferner, towards Grawand (3,012 m a.s.l). From here, take the glacier cable car down to the valley.
If you prefer a bit more comfort, you can do the trail in reverse and take the glacier cable car up to Grawand in 6 minutes and then walk back down to Bella Vista.
