The Upper Venosta Valley offers hikers and mountain climbers trails with splendid views, in all degrees of elevation and difficulty. Families and leisure hikers can walk along the irrigation channel paths or along the 360° panoramic trail through the highlands, or use the cable car to more easily reach the sunny trails on the Watles. Family-friendly routes lead from the upper station to Höferalm Alpine pasture or to the Pfaffensee lake.

Hikers can also learn many new and interesting facts about the region on theme trails like the “Sonnensteig”, which runs from Burgusio/Burgeis to Spondignia/Sponding. More challenging are the high mountain trails, such as the routes over the Spitzige Lun, the Glurnser Köpfl or the Tellakopf mountains, to a scenic summit at the entrance to the Münstertal Valley. Multi-day hikes, like the Venosta Valley High Mountain trail, which combines gentle and spectacular stages over 100 kilometres, are especially impressive.
