2TälerTrail

Border crossing long-distance hiking in the mountain lake paradise Defereggental

The boarder crossing "2TälerTrail" from Osttirol to Südtirol leads to ways where minings, varlets, church-goers and smugglers have walked ever since. This path is around 90 kilometres long and takes up to six days from Hopfgarten in Defereggen via St. Jakob in Defereggen and the Staller Sattel to Rasen in the Antholzertal-valley. The "2TälerTrail" is consciously no high alpine long-distance-hiking-trail and also no monoton valley trail, it's just a trail inbetween. It leads along avarage levels, between high alpine terrain and the valley bottom. Alpine mountain scenarious and cultural landscapes are changing. The views to the snow covered peaks of the Lasörling-group, Villgarter-mountains and the Rieserverner-group are simply stunning. Figuratively speaking, neither does the hiker walk on the roof nor on the ground floor but on the balcony of the alps. Choose your night stop in a village in one of the loveley hotels, guesthouses with halfboard or private rooms with breakfast after a superior hiking day.

not to the first floor, but on the balcony of the Alps. At the end of each day's stage is always reached a place where, depending on your choice, you can spend the night in a guesthouse, inn or hotel.
