Turn-by-turn directions

We will start in Bozen/Bolzano (260m) and take the bus to the Gherdëina valley and to the village of St. Cristina (1430m). There we walk to the valley station of the cable car Col Raiser (1550m), which brings us up to the Col Raiser hut (2106m).

From here we start the hike towards the Cuca anticline, and where the ascent towards the Sëceda peak (2519m) starts which offers us an astonishing view to the Geisler/Odles pinnacles and large parts of South Tyrol.

After reaching the peak, we descent towards the Pieralionga alp (2297m), an insider tip as it is small, traditional and cosy hut apart from the modern tourist huts. Here, we can buy or have lunch (note: they do not serve warm meals!).

After lunch, we hike back to the Col Raiser hut and take the cable car down to Sta Cristina where the bus will take us back to Bozen/Bolzano.

OPTIONAL: Before returning back, we can explore the village of Santa Cristina with its Ladin culture and language (ancient Rhaeto-Romance).
