A paradise for trekking: Val Senales in summer

Trekking in Val Senales in summer is a real insider tip. Here you will find quiet hiking trails where you are often all alone. Many of them start right outside the door of the Piccolo Hotel Gurschler and already at an altitude of 2,011 metres. Which means that every step counts as altitude training. There is also plenty of variety off the hiking trails, including the via ferratas, the Ötzi Rope Park high ropes course, a 3D archery course, mountain carts as well as lots of cultural highlights.

Touring paradise

240 trails for pleasure and alpine hikers.

Experience culture

Sheep drives, discovering Ötzi's tracks and more.

Cool nights

Escape the heat and catch your breath again.

Hiking in Ötzi's kingdom
Discover Val Senales step by step

From the vineyards at the valley entrance to the glaciers at the end: the Val Senales valley offers the full range of hiking opportunities. The Ötzi Glacier Tour is a very special tour to where Ötzi was discovered, as well as the glacier tour into the 50 metre deep ice cave. Those who prefer to stay in the valley can hike around the Vernago reservoir or hike from farm to farm.

Summer programme
The Val Senales Tourist Association

There is always something going on in Val Senales: guided hikes with a local hiking guide, tastings on an organic farm, a day trip to the site where Ötzi was found, a guided tour of the monastery or introduction courses to climbing. We will be happy to provide you with information about the daily offers of the tourism association.

Simply authentic

Very friendly hotel management, competent and courteous staff, excellent cuisine and beautiful, clean rooms. We can only recommend this hotel and will definitely be back.

Was our 1st time at the Piccolo, we liked it very much, friendly and warm people, good food, very clean and we got competent answers to all our questions. Would definitely come back here, maybe in the summer for hiking.

Ideally suited as a base accommodation for a high-altitude touring week in the surrounding mountains. Very good food and nice atmosphere.

Sleep well
IT DOESN'T TAKE MUCH TO ENJOY SWEET DREAMS.
