Ulten valley

Explore the farming culture on a delightful walk in the Ulten valley.This popular loop trail leads from Kuppelwies(about 40 minutes by car from our hotel)  via St. Nikolaus to St. Gertraud and back on the other side of the valley. The trail is very popular with all age groups due to the very slight difference in altitude (approx. 300 m), and a total walking time of approx. five hours. It leads along many traditional farms through forests and meadows and is a great way of discovering the valley’s oldest and most beautiful farm houses. You will feel transported back to a simpler age and admire the beautiful houses with their shingle roofs, lakes and gardens. If you don’t feel like walking too much, you can do part of the way and then take a bus back to the departure point
