Fabulous walk on the Alta Via di Riva.
Val di Riva is one of the most fascinating hiking areas in South Tyrol, where there is the highest concentration of mountains that exceed 3000 meters above sea level.
Our itinerary runs from 1600 to 2200 meters and partly retraces the Alta Via di Riva, passing through numerous huts, beautiful pastures and barns, always accompanied by a wonderful view of the valley and the surrounding peaks. It is a walk with a drop of just over 600 meters and is also suitable for families.
From the car park near the Church of San Volfango (1600 m) take path 10 to the pastures with barns known as Lobisa Schupfn (1950 m). Turn right onto the Alta Via di Riva - trail marker 1 A, passing the Unterrieser (1990 m) and Hirber (2090 m) huts, and a simple shepherd's hut (2214 m - highest point of the excursion). arrives at Malga Durra (2096 m). Now take path 1, which goes down to the parking lot for the Dossi hut (1690 m). At the end of the car park, take the road on the left with signpost n. 9 and descend to Riva di Tures (1572 - lowest point of the excursion). Now you return to the parking area on the paved road.
