Our partner: the MeranAlpin mountaineering school

Experience the mountains with friends: this is the motto of the MeranAlpin mountaineering school. This is a philosophy which we fully identify with. The school is well established with over 30 years of experience. The alpine guides and hikers, in addition to being 100% South Tyrolean, know the local mountain scenery by heart and share the sentiments of Baden Powell: "There is no good or bad weather, only good or bad equipment". For each hike, there is a checklist, available here for download.

Exploring the mountain with Walter Theiner

Our regular guests know it well: the mountains are Walter Theiner's greatest passion. For him, every opportunity presents a chance for a hike. As a qualified mountain guide, he always provides valuable information. In addition, he comes up with interesting anecdotes, making your experiences in nature even more enjoyable. Once a year, he even organizes a multi-day tour (Link zu Blog mit Mehrtageswanderungen), with overnight stays in shelters.

Tour of Lake Caldaro

The circular tour begins at the restaurant and parking area at the north-western corner of the lake. From here you can complete the itinerary (signpost 3 and "Seerundweg" signs) in both directions. We prefer the excursion counter-clockwise. First, follow a paved stretch, then a natural path on the west side of the lake to the south to the village of San Giuseppe al Lago. After crossing it and following the road for a short distance, take the old path to the south-western corner of the lake. Then, take a paved path and reach the east side, crossing the southern shore of the lake. First, however, follow the road for a short distance and take the path that winds in the distance to the north. Finally, complete the last part of the route to the west, returning to the starting point.

Fenn Promenade and earth pyramids at Renon

At the northern edge of the village of Collalbo, turn right onto the Fenn Promenade (signposted) and enjoy a pleasant hike along a stretch that is partly flat, partly slightly sloping around Mount Favogna eastwards to a first vantage point, where you can see the earth pyramids in the distance. From here, continue slightly downhill towards Longomaso up to the Café Piramidi, then turn right on a wide walkway through the slopes of the Rio Fosco valley, which offer different views of the earth pyramids. At this point, you can turn back. However, it is more rewarding to surpass the deep gorge through a beautiful path and a covered bridge, stopping at the shrine of Maria Saal.
Return: up to Longomaso along the same outbound route, then take the western stretch of the walk.

Circular excursion to Gargazzone

Pass between the two greenhouses to reach the main road. After crossing it, follow the signs for "Berghütten". The journey becomes much more difficult as you pass a couple of houses up to the panoramic path above the valley. Follow it until you return to the centre of the village. Finally, return to theiner's garten.
