at Valle Aurina
The Valle Aurina-Ahrntal is home to some ninety operating Alpine cabins on around 400 km (250 miles) of hiking trails, with fifty of them also offering food and drink, in some of them you can also stay overnight. That means: richly worthwhile hiking destinations and many possibilities to make a brief stop while underway, to feast upon a hearty meal, or to lean your back against a wooden wall that has been warmed by the sun.
The pace of the hike simply picks up when an Alpine pasture comes into view. It doesn’t matter whether it is a carefully tended wood-paneled parlor or a rustic, weather-beaten, and slightly leaning cabin, or whether there is boiling, roasting, and sizzling going on at the stove or just a plain wooden bench for a picnic and a fantastic panorama view right in front of the door.
