Part of my hikingtrip from Amsterdam to Sarajevo, this is the Via Alpina Red Trail through the Italian Alps. On the Via Alpina I kept on crossing borders. Italy, Austria, Italy, Austria. The trail follows the mountains and well, nature does not know borders. Borders are often formed by nature, but I could hardly see the differences. So, I “filed” this part under “Italy”, but parts of this traject actually were in Austria.

The Italian Alps are versatile, the Via Alpina leads you through one National Park after the other.
