Mountain Farmer Trail - summer

Varied tour through the impressive world of Val Martello’s mountain farmers.

This family-friendly hike through Martello’s district of Selva is an informative theme hike. It starts at the Niederhof farm in Val Martello and takes you along the "Kaandlwool", a traditional wooden irrigation channel which is still used for irrigating the fields. The 7-km long circular hike leads through private property and thus offers insights into the farmers’ life and work. Furthermore, there are many information boards and wooden forest animals along the way. This trail is well suited for a snowshoe hike in winter as well.
As you cross private property during this hike, we kindly ask you to accept the owners’ property and customs.
