The hike from the Laghetto di Fiè to/Völser Weiher Lake the Sciliar/Schlern requires good physical fitness and surefootedness, but makes up for this with a variety-packed route and exceptional views off into the distance.
From the Laghetto di Fiè/Völser Weiher Lake, go to the Laghetto Huber/Huber Weiher Lake, where a steep trail forks off towards the Malga Tuff/Tuff Alm hut. Below the Tuff, follow the signposts to “Sciliar/Schlern, Hoferalpl” (no. 1). A wide walking path leads below the face of the Sciliar and over the Rio di Fiè stream to the freight cable car valley station. Turn left and follow trail 1 up to the entrance of the Gola dello Sciliar/Schlernschlucht gorge and the “Peter Frag” rest stop. Now take a left onto the Schäufelesteig trail (no. 3), which winds up to the Sciliar plateau in a series of steep bends.
From the Rifugio Bolzano/Schlernhaus mountain hut, trail no. 1 leads down to the Malga Seggiola/Sesselschwaige mountain hut. Follow the “corduroy” tree-trunk trail, also known as the Knüppelweg, into the Sciliar gully, down to the Peter Frag roadside cross and back to the Laghetto di Fiè along the same route.
