Whether it’s summer or winter, a day on the sunny Corno del Renon plateau truly is a must while on a hiking holiday in South Tyrol. The 2260m summit offers unique, indescribable 360° views of South Tyrol’s magnificent mountain world. When you get to the top, the uninterrupted views stretch from the Grossglockner, over the Dolomites, to the Ortler Alps, as there are no other taller mountains in the area to obstruct your view.
Why not take the Corno del Renon cable car? A quick and convenient way to bring you to the summit. From there, hike on to Punta Lago Nero (Schwarzseespitze) and press on for another hour. In winter, it’s also possible for those on skis or a snowboard to take the drag lift up to the top.
There are countless hiking paths of varying difficulty levels on Corno del Renon, offering both challenging hikes and gentle rambles in equal measure, while the delicious traditional South Tyrolean dishes available at the mountain inns and huts never fail to impress.
Hike from Tre Vie to Corno del Renon
The hike begins at the cable car valley station in Tre Vie. From the car park, take path no. 7. After about 40 minutes, you’ll reach the café in Madonnina. Then, continue along path no. 2, past lush meadows and grazing cows. After a while, turn onto path 2a and follow it until you get to the Feltuner hut, from which you will eventually get to the Unterhornhaus. From here, take path no. 1 directly to Corno del Renon (2259m).
