LONG-DISTANCE HIKING – YOUR BALCONY TO THE ALPS

Spend a week doing nothing but hiking in the lush natural surroundings of the mountains. Forget about your everyday worries while enjoying breathtaking views of the valleys and peaks. The ZweiTälerTrail (Two-Valley Trail) from the Antholz Valley to Defereggen leads hikers through the pristine mountain landscape in East and South Tyrol.

The Antholz Valley and Defereggen Valley are both situated on the southern slopes of the Alps on the border between Italy and Austria. Mass tourism has not caught on here. The sparsely populated mountain region is nestled among high alpine nature reserves, making it a great insider tip for hiking fans seeking rest and recuperation.

Mountain farmers, churchgoers and smugglers once used the Two-Valley Trail route to get from one valley to the other. Come and embark on a journey back to this time!

The Two-Valley Trail starts in Hopfgarten in Defereggen, heads along the Staller Saddle mountain pass and ends in Rasen in the Antholz Valley. Seven daily stages spanning a total of 90 kilometres lie in store for hikers. This trail is the middle ground between a high-alpine long-distance trail and a monotonous valley hiking path. It snakes along the middle altitudinal zone between high-alpine terrain and valley floors. Hikers can enjoy the unique views of the valley’s villages and the snow-capped mountain peaks as they forge their way across the Lasörling Group, Villgraten Mountains and the three-thousanders in the Rieserferner Group. Metaphorically speaking, this entire route is a balcony to the Alps. At the end of each daily stage, hikers reach a village where they have the option of staying in a guest house, an inn or a hotel.
