This variety-packed loop route begins in Ums, leads to the Hofer Alpl and Tuff Alm huts high above Völs, passes by the Laghetto di Völser Weiher and Huber Weiher lakes and is inspectacular proximity to the mighty rock faces of the Schlern and the Hammerwand. The tenants are on the Tuff Alm hut are passionate about animals so it is not unusual to find camels, alpacas, rabbits, donkeys and horses on the pastures.

The starting point for the tour is the church in Ums. Then head in the direction “Hofer Alpl, Tuff Alm”, around a few bends on the way, until a path towards “Hofer Alpl, Schlern” begins on the right (trail no. 3). The path to the Hofer Alpl is now fairly steep, leading you uphill through the forest. From the Hofer Alpl, the trail first leads along a forest road, then a footpath and on to the Tuff Alm hut. The path merges into a wide path uphill to the Schlern (trail no. 1). The route crosses the Völser Bach stream and leads on over vast Alpine meadows to the Tuff Alm. Before you get to the hut, a stony trail forks off to the left to the Völser Weiher lake. It winds through the wood and meets with the gravelly road leading to the Tuff Alm hut. After the Huber Weiher lake, turn left onto a walking trail towards Ums (trail no. 2). The path leads down through a woody valley and streams and then over open meadows back to Ums.

Interurban bus line 176 will bring you to Ums village centre, the set-off point for the tour.
