Summer in Valles: hikes and bike rides in the Isarco Valley and the Gitschberg Jochtal alpine region

Among green pastures

Lush meadows, cool woods, and a hundred different shades of colour. A hike in the Gitschberg Jochtal alpine region is a unique experience. The Lechnerhof is an ideal base for exploring the local area, offering an almost endless choice.

The village of Valles is in the Isarco valley, surrounded by the Fundres mountains. The best-known destinations are Malga Fane, the Alta Via di Fundres (high-altitude trail), the Bressanone mountain hut, Lake Selvaggio and the Picco della Croce.
