Walking along the “Ultner Talweg”

The “Ultner Talweg” is a hiking route along the sunny slopes of the Val d’Ultimo Valley from San Pancrazio to Santa Valburga

24 km long and a difference in altitude of 1,270 m - these are the figures of the "Ultner Talweg" circular route. Starting from San Pancrazio the trail leads along the sunny slopes to Santa Valburga and leads back to San Pancrazio on the shady side. As it takes about 8 hours to walk along the whole circular route, we decide to do just half of it today - on the sunny side.

From the village centre of San Pancrazio we follow the sign "Talweg" in western direction. The path is quite narrow and sectionwise of medium difficulty and leads through the wood. Not quite the ideal path for those who search for an easy walk! It offers though untouched nature and some nice panoramic views on the Val d'Ultimo Valley and the Alborelo Lake. It takes us 3 hours to reach Santa Valburga, where we take the bus, which brings us back to our starting point San Pancrazio.

Please note: With an altitude between 750 and 1,300 m this hiking route is not an alpine tour. However, the trail conditions make it a hike of medium difficulty. The best season for this walk are spring and autumn.
