Hiking tour Fane Alm
The Fane Alm in the Vals-Jochtal area: hiking for nature lovers and nostalgics.
The Fane Alm is a picturesque little alpine village with a tiny church. Numerous log cabins, shingle-covered alpine huts and lush green alpine meadows: this is how original South Tyrol can be!
Starting point of the tour
Top station of the Jochtal lift
Destination of the tour
Fane alpine pasture
The Fane Alm is located in the upper Vals valley. From the top station of the Jochtal lift, hikers descend slightly northwestwards on trail no. 9 to the Valser Joch. From here, always follow trail no. 9 over steep grassy slopes to the Rotensteinalm: The alp is also called Schellenbergalm.
Here the trail becomes increasingly exposed and narrow. In some places, you can hold on to wire ropes. Soon you reach the ridge depression and the pasture slopes of the Ochsenalm and finally the destination of the hike, the idyllic Fane Alm. Once you have arrived in the alpine village, we recommend a stop in one of the rustic huts.
