“Waalwege” – hiking in Vinschgau

The so-called “Waale” are a kind of ancient irrigation systems for the dry earth in Vinschgau, which normally has quite little rainfall.

The water for the fields here is often channelled through stone or wooden channels and along these channels you will find some pleasant hiking and walking paths. Originally, they were built in order to maintain the irrigation channels.

The small routes, which often are suitable for the whole family, partly proceed for several kilometres, offering extraordinary hiking and walking tours. They are ideal places for nature lovers and epicures, because they include not just wonderful insights in a unique landscape, but also many nice inns and restaurants, providing hearty snacks and local specialities.

Which “Waalwege” path is the most recommended for a cosy hike is difficult to say as all of them have a special charm. Please note that the “Schludernser Bergwaal” and the “Islwaal in Schlanders” are regularly filled with water in April, most of the other only from May.

In the neighbouring region surrounding Meran, you can find many other beautiful paths along old irrigations channels.
