From wine to apples.
A wonderful, long excursion from the South Tyrolean Wine Road into the Non Valley with a detour to the high-altitude Lake Tovel. For once, you roll down the Mendel Pass towards the east. The low start in Kurtatsch has the advantage that you can warm up to Mezzocorona before the first climbs into the Nonstal valley with its green apple orchards begin.

Start in Kurtatsch. From the centre of the village, take the wine road (SP 90) towards South until Aichholz ➊ (Roverè della Luna), where the provincial border between South Tyrol and Trentino runs out. Continue to Mezzocorona, on the SP 90 through towards Mezzolombardo ➋. From there, turn right towards Nonstal. Shortly after the junction with the SS43, turn onto the SP 73. Turn off towards ➍ Campodenno (SP 55), continue to Denno ➎ and Tuenno. In Tuenno ➏ turn left towards Lake Tovel ➐. The 10 km long mountain road to Lake Tovel is relatively steep. From the popular excursion destination of Lake Tovel, return to Tuenno and turn left towards Cles. At Cles, the main town of the Nonsberg, go above Lago di Santa Giustina and, after leaving the town, turn right ➑ towards Gagno and Revo on the SP 139. Continue on the SS42 towards Fondo ➒. From there, via Ronzone ➓ to the (signposted) Mendel Pass ⓫ steadily slightly upärt. Then with views over the lake down to Kaltern. At the Kalterer Höhe
