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.

Sporting aces manage unique track by mountain bike or road bike. Those, who rather want to enjoy the landscape and the breath-taking panorama, go there by car or by motorbike. 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.

Culture fans should visit Mariä Heimsuchung church and the pilgrimage church Unsere Liebe Frau zu den drei Brunnen with fountain chapel. The nature park houses Naturatrafoi and Aquaprad offer interesting insights in Stilfserjoch National Park.
