Casere-Kasern - Hochwieser Alm - Biotope Wieser Werfa - Waldner See/lake - Casere-Kasern

We move through an area of small streams, mountain rivers and moraines („Wieser Werfa” und “Wieser Moos”) and mountain lakes (Waldner See). At the same time we enjoy panoramic views of the glaciated world of the „Hohe Tauern” mountains as well as the dark peaks of the “Durreck Group“, a core landscape of the Nature Park “Rieserferner-Ahrn”. Historical pathways across the „Hundskehle” tell of former close contacts with the neighbouring people in “Zillertal” valley.
