Very individual hike in a low frequented border area through South Tyrol and Trentino. Discovering completely new prospects from german speaking Deutschnonsberg until the italian speaking Val di Non. Along the ancient border oft he linguistic groups this trail offers much diversification and nature experience. This light tour is leading continnually down without much difference of altitude, alltough not very short. The panoramic views to the mountain communities of St. Felix, Tret an d Fondo are awesome. In the further course we enjoy other amazing views over the whole Val di Non with the mountains of the Brenta Dolomites in the background. After 3-4 hours you will arrive at Maso Plaz where you find an excellent lunch. The tour is planned as one direction tour. For return trip you can be carried by shuttle service or until 4 persons with the Maso Plaz electric car.

Author’s recommendation

If you start early enough, you will arrive at Maso Plaz just for dinner. There you will find a rhich meal and after you can relax by the lavender field. I f you come on afternoon, you can get abundant cold cuts with delicious specialities from the own farm and home made bread. In each case we will arrange to bring you back to your starting point. For shuttle reservation please call us previously.
