The Pfunderer Höhenweg runs from Sterzing to Bruneck – through the middle of the Pfunderer mountains in the north of South Tyrol. The tour is about 70 km long and can be hiked in 4 to 6 stages. This tour suggestion includes five stages.

Traditional shepherds' paths lead through an evergreen landscape. The trail is particularly attractive in early summer, when the many small lakes lie in the middle of a huge sea of flowers. However, this idyll should by no means obscure the demands of the tour. Even in the high season, the paths are not very frequented – and therefore often not very well trodden. Steep sections, snowfields and short, rope-secured sections must be mastered without problems. Surefootedness and a solid physical condition are also prerequisites for this tour. The trail is marked throughout with a red and white circle.

A few years ago "all" hikes were free to download. At the moment it is the opposite. Almost all hikes are for Premium members only and consequently you can not download them anymore. Luckily there are plenty of other web platforms where you can find and download the gps tracks for free. Jacky Verheyen
