The "2 Täler Trail" starts in Hopfgarten in Defereggen, heads along the Staller Saddle mountain pass and ends in Niederrasen in the Antholzertal Valley. Six 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.

Hallo Ralf, wir sind alle 6 Etappen vom 18. Jul.-23. Juli 2021 mit Gepäck gewandert, die Anbindungen sind ganz gut, man kann selektieren, wenn man mag. Ob man wirklich alle Teile machen muss/sollte, ist halt Geschmacksache... LG PP
