The SchwarzWeiss Long-Distance Hiking Trail is currently the only long-distance hiking trail in the Unterland district of South Tyrol. ” Stroll your way to happiness” and “Slow down and enjoy yourself” are the principles upon which this trail is based. When traversing this trail, you can appreciate the stark contrasts which dominate South Tyrol and which are especially visible in the Unterland district, along the Truden Faultline: linguistic boundaries, historical borders, interesting rock formations, magnificent mountains and luscious valleys, alpine and mediterranean climate zones, as well as Schwarz (“black”) and Weiss (“white”). Come and explore this unique and spectacular region! And what better way than by wandering from village to village? Every locality has its own unique characteristics which you can experience in depth during the individual village tours.
All along the trail, conveniently placed information panels will tell you more about the unusual stories, curious facts, and exciting details about the wonderful past and present of these picturesque spots, breathtakingly beautiful surroundings, and pristine nature.
Here’s a good overview of all the segments of the Long-Distance Trail. You can proceed towards either the Weisshorn or in the direction of the Schwarzhorn. The twin mountains represent our geographic anchors – and our loyal companions all along the trail. You can undertake any individual segment or combine them, as you wish. But the trail is particularly well-suited for a multi-day tour. Additionally, at every exit point and destination, there’s a pleasant village route you can take – either individually, or in combination with several segments.
Want to go on a segment to a wonderful destination on the weekend? Or embark on a journey encompassing multiple segments over a period of several days? Or how about a pleasant village tour with a tasty aperitif at the end, while you enjoy the marvelous panorama? The choice is all yours! You can put together a tour consisting of various different parts and then start on your journey! It’s worth its!
“Slow down and enjoy yourself” is the motto of our village tours.
