Turn-by-turn directions

Beginning in Völs am Schlern, this tour leads off the main road and through St. Anton to St. Konstantin, where you cross the road and take the first ascent past the idyllic Völs am Schlern and Huber lakes with views of the Schlern. From the Tuff Alm mountain hut, the route crosses the Völserbach, just a few metres from the freight cable car which, at 1,452 m, is the highest point of the route. You need a little patience before you can really enjoy a rest, as the Hofer Alpl is still a few bends downhill. Once you’ve replenished your energy, take the forest road downhill to the Hieblerhof farm and continue along the tarred road back to your set-off point.
