Hiking in Valle Aurina-Ahrntal

©wisthaler.com_20_08_TV_Ahrntal_wander_HAW_1946

The Ahrntal Valley is one of the most beautiful hiking areas in South Tyrol with an immense variety of hiking trails between 860 and 3,499 meters a.s.l. To crest a Three-Thousander following the footsteps of alpinist legend Hans Kammerlander or the young alpinist Simon Gietl would really be a great challenge.

Hiking without a car - almost all walks can be done on foot directly from the front door or the starting point is ideally accessible by public transport

Hiking in the Ahrntal Valley makes you long for more!

Even the racing to the peak of these two experienced alpine guides began by discovering their love for hiking. Hiking means to live nature, physical activity, mental balance, relax, mobility, to come to peace, to enjoy the view and much more. Once you have discovered this love, you will always return to the wonderful mountain world and not seldom come back to hike in the Ahrntal Valley. 

You don’t find so many valleys in the Alps with such hiking possibilities, from the simple, comfortable wandering to the glacier tour. Beside the impressive view from the partly high alpine hiking trails, there is also a wonderful flora and fauna to discover, not to forget the abundance of water: gushing streams, blustering waterfalls, wonderful biotopes.

However, in the end also the people give a valley its character and soul. They fondly manage the high alpine slopes and huts, preserving this wonderful landscape for the wandering observer.

Mountain safety

Safety while hiking in the mountains is a particularly important issue for the mountain rescue teams of South Tyrol. The mountain rescue teams of the Alpine Association South Tyrol would like you to return safely from your mountain hiking trip. For this reason, they have listed a number of rules and regulations, which will ensure your safety:

Correct preparation starts at home
Look at a regional map or tour description. Inform yourself about the grade of difficulty, the summit height and walking times, open Alpine pubs or mountain guides or simple accommodation on the mountain.
Be careful to choose the right equipment and clothing for your trip.

Be well equipped while walking in the mountains
Make sure you carry suitable clothing, sufficient food and necessary tools with you. However, ensure at the same time not to carry too many unnecessary things in your ruck-sack. In any case: don't forget the emergency equipment! Start early and begin your tour walking slowly and not too fast. Take regular breaks.Don't forget to eat and drink.Protect the nature around you as well as yourself by staying on the marked routes.

A mountain tour is better done together with a second person.


Act responsibly
 It is your condition, which determines the next destination point. The tour must be suitable for the weakest person in the group. Inform family, friends or your hotel owner about your trip.

Watch out for weather changes!
Don't forget to study the weather forecast. Keep an eye on the weather development throughout your trip. Avoid secured climbing paths and ridges if there is a storm. These places attract lightening.

Be responsible and be careful!
If you come across an unexpected difficulty, don't forget that it is always better to turn back and do not take unnecessary risks. Keep a cool head and don't over-evaluate your performance on the day. Remember that you are not alone in the mountains and be careful walking in an area where stones can get loose easily.
