The homecoming of the sheep ...

Saturday, 04.09.2021 – Sunday, 19.09.2021
7 nights - Free choice of arrival day

Sheep wool is known as the white gold of the Senales Valley. In our valley, sheep farming dates back to centuries ago, and just like then, it's still carefully preserved and guarded. Our natural unspoilt landscape and the refined quality of the products of the TONZHAUS hotel are the demonstration of the importance that we give to farming, and to the derived precious sheep produce.

Package special services

  • Transhumance on Saturday, 11th of September in Vernago/Vernagt and on Sunday, 12th of September in Maso Corto/Kurzras: since time immemorial, around mid-June, shepherds have led flocks of two to three thousand sheep from Val Senales to the summer pastures of Vent in Ötztal in Austria, passing through Giogo Basso and Giogo Alto, to then bring them back home in September. We welcome the sheep on their arrival in Val di Tisa and follow them to Vernago. You can experience this unusual and ancient tradition first-hand and discover its interesting history.
