- Over the Angerer Alm to the Lanzwiesen Alm in Olang
Head directly from the hotel (1,050 m) to Upper Olang, and from there head to the cultivated Angerer Alm at 1,401 m (those with prams can also use the forest road), which offers a spectacular view of the Olan reservoir. Those who have even more passion and stamina can continue through the forest path up to the Lanzwiesen Alm (cultivated) at 1,823 m. Then return via Bad Bergfall or Voppichl back to Central Olang and then back to the hotel.
- From the “Plätzwiese “ in “Pragser Valley” up to Strudelkopf
After a journey of approx. 25 minutes to the beautiful Plätzwiese (2,000 m), the hiking trail heads in the direction of Strudelkopf, just after the mountain guesthouse Plätzwiese. There are no difficulties to contend with at 300 m. At the summit, you will be rewarded with a breathtaking view of the Three Peaks. You come down via the Dürrenstein Hut, before back to the starting point of the hike.
- The Val Casies, Almweg 2000
As the name “Almweg 2000” already suggests, this route takes you from alp to alp at an altitude of approximately 2000 meters. This particularly rewarding hike is a round trip that can be walked in either direction and is easy for the regular hiker.
Starting from St. Magdalena, (head of the valley) follow the forest road number 48 through the forest up until you reach the Tscharnietalm at 1976 m altitude.
From there, follow the red markings onto the moderately steep mountain path until the Kasermähder Alm (2048 m). Continue across the slopes, in and out of the tree line, to the Gipfelalm (2104 m). Walk in a slight descent to the Stumpfalm (2001 m;
Rest point) and then on a wide and comfortable road to the already-mentioned Kaser Alm (2076 m; rest point). From the Kaser Alm, follow the ascending marked path on the slope into the pretty Pfoital briefly upwards to a bridge and then, on the western grassy hillside, continue on the marked trail slightly ascending to the Uwaldalm at 2042 m above sea level. (Rest and refreshment point). - Return: From the Uwaldalm you can return on the forest road.
Total walking time is 5 hours
- The famous 3 Peaks - circumnavigation
From the Auronzo Hut on the South side of the Three Peaks along Path Nr. 101, past the Lavaredo Hut (2,344 m), and it’s then an easy climb to the Paternsattel (2.454 m). This offers an initial magnificent view of the 500 m high North Walls of the Three Peaks (so far approx. 1 hour – this is also recommended for inexperienced hikers). It is then a mild descent as we cross under the Paternkofel up to the junction: a) Easy climb up to the Three Peaks Hut (2,405 m) b) to the left, we then go further down following trail nr. 105. We will soon be on Path nr. 102, which comes up above the Rienz Valley. Via Path nr. 105 (left), it’s an easy climb for us up to the Alm Hut “Long Alpe”; as we go past the Long Alpe Lake we encircle the Three Peaks on the West side, up to the Auronzo Hut.
Total walking time is 3 hours
