Walking along the "Via dei Masi" in Val d'Ultimo

This path across historic farms of the valley is interesting both from a cultural and scenic point of view.
Well marked and some 100 m above the valley basin, the so called “Hoefeweg” (Via dei Masi, which means Farm Path) snakes its way along Val d’Ultimo. Follow the road in Pracupola to the signs “Ultner Hoefeweg” and follow these signs.

Starting from the lake in Pracupola, the path proceeds into the valley on the sunny side of the valley and back on the shady side. Numerous historic and traditional farms with typical shingle roofs line the path and they seem like aeries on the steep slopes, really amazing. While walking you can also admire characteristic wooden fences and moss-covered stone walls.

Further on you pass the “Talmuseum” (valley museum), providing an insight into customs and traditions of the valley.
The way back leads along the opposite side of the valley, leading to the ancient larches at S. Gertrude at 1,430 m asl. Proceed up and down past S. Nicolò further on back to the starting point. Of course you can also take the bus in order to reach your starting point or walk only a part of the path.

Length: 9 km (one direction); walking time: about 2 ½ h (one direction)
