The Götsch family's favourite "cultural" hike: Following the trail of the sheep from Vent to Vernago

Trail of the sheep
  • Period: from June to September
In the summer of 2017, we went on a lovely family hike. We started from Vent in the Ötztal Valley, and continued up via the Martin Busch and Similaun mountain huts, stopping for refreshments on the way. After that, we had quite a tiring walk down towards Vernago. The whole hike is approx. 11 km long, with a difference in altitude of 1,100 metres going up and 1,300 metres coming down. It's a challenging but really wonderful hike. You'll pass some majestic mountain pines along the way, as well as evocative glaciers with their delightful flora, and some really amazing views.
