The Merano/Meran high altitude trail – South Tyrol at its very best

An impressive hike over several days for ambitious hikers

The Merano/Meran high altitude trail extends around the Texel Group in the nature park of the same name and is one of the most stunning circular trails in the whole of South Tyrol. At an almost consistent altitude of 1,400 m, 6 daily stages in total await you, which can be tackled on their own or as part of a multi-day tour with overnight accommodation at mountain inns.
