Hiking to the alpine pastures of Avelengo

A perfect hiking tour in spring, summer or autumn is the tour to the Alpine pastures of Avelengo.

This fairly moderate hike takes you over a distance of 16 km and along well-marked trails. Sturdy shoes are recommended! Starting point is the parking site in Avelengo. Walk towards the town hall to trail n° 2A, which takes you along a forest road for 1.5 hours and up to the Wurzer mountain hut at 1,707 m a.s.l.

Continue on trail n° 2 and after half an hour you will reach the Verano mountain hut (Vöraner Alm, 1,873 m a.s.l.). Here you may go for a little break, but remember: the hut is opened from the middle of May to early November only. Hike further on trail n° 11A first and n° 11 later, until you reach the Leadner mountain hut at 1,514 m a.s.l. Again you might have a little break or continue on path n° 16 immediately back to the starting point in Avelengo.

Important: if you would like to do this mountain hike please take information about the current conditions on site!
