The Ortler Massif is surrounded by some of the most challenging high-altitude hiking paths and circuit trails in the Alps. Each lasting several days, they provide breathtaking views of the spectacular mountains in the Stelvio National Park.

The Ortler High Mountain Trail

The most arduous of these multi-day hikes is the 119.5 km Ortler High Mountain Trail. Divided into seven days with 6 – 8 hours trekking per day, the path sometimes rises above 3,000 m. With an altitude difference totalling 8,126 m, the route along the Ortler High Mountain Trail is undoubtedly one of the most challenging in the Alps.

The Marble Circuit Trail

The 80 km Marble Circuit Trail in the Stelvio National Park around the Laaser Mountain Massif also requires a high level of stamina and surefootedness. However, it is also suited to sure-footed hikers without much high mountain experience. The panoramic, 6-day route circles the imposing Laaser Massif. In certain sections, the trail rises above 3,000 m, with the Madritschjoch ridge (3,123 m) as its highest point.
