Hiking on the Ortler – limitless fascination

It offers hikes graded from easy to very demanding

This is an apt description of the delightfully untouched countryside of the Ortler region. Enthusiastic hikers can find here exactly what they are looking for: from easy family hikes along the foot of gigantic mountains to demanding hikes that mainly lead to scraggy mountains peaks, but also to luscious mountain pastures and also to original, unspoilt mountain cabins.

Hiking on the Ortler offers a unique experience and views, but also gives hikers a chance to challenge the limits of their endurance. Whoever likes extensive hiking tours is, in the truest sense of the word, in a hiking paradise here with a fantastic mountain backdrop.
