, this hiking paradise is easily accessible by cableway
The climb from Laces to St. Martin in Monte is one of the most exhilarating Speed-hiking routes in the Venosta Valley. There are a number of well-frequented and relatively easy hiking routes that pass St. Martino in Monte, such as the high altitude scenic trail along Monte Sole running through St. Martino in Silandro, capital of the Venosta Valley, via the "Egg" and "Forra" farms and then the fortresses of Annaberg and Schlandersberg. The St. Martin in Monte high mountain plateau can also be crossed in winter thanks to its position on Monte Sole mountain
, where snowfall is rare.
