Cresta Val d’Ultimo

The Val d’Ultimo mountains extend in the north and west of the valley.

The mountains of Val d’Ultimo are spurs of the Gruppo dell’Ortles and provide a series of popular destinations for mountaineers. Trails and walking paths lead you to the top of the Gran Ladro (2,730 m asl), the Sasso (2,542 m asl) or the Orecchia di Lepre (3,257 m asl). Once reached the top, you enjoy the pleasure of a great view on the Val d’Ultimo and the neighbouring Val Venosta. In the middle of these mountains, there are also the Covolo Lakes (Laghi del Covolo).

The Alta Via of Val d’Ultimo high path provides you an insight into the mountains of this part of the province of Bolzano, it can best be walked in a three-day tour. Stretching on a length of 50 km, it passes at several alpine pastures, ideal for a short stop. In winter, the skiing area Schwemmalm at Pracupola attracts those who love winter sports.
