Holidays in Trafoi
The small picturesque mountain village owes its reputation to the proximity to Mt. Ortler and to its position on a renowned road leading to Stilfser Joch pass via 50 hairpin bends.
Trafoi is located at 1,570 m of altitude in the heart of Stilfserjoch National Park and at the foot of Mt. Ortler – the highest peak in South Tyrol. The famous street to the highest mountain pass in the Alps, the Stilfser Joch pass is a famous destination in summer.

Once a year – during the famous Stelvio Bike Day – the second-highest Alpine pass in Europe that is accessible by car is closed and only opened for cyclists.
