Start
Start at 8.00 clock a.m. at the tourist office in Sand in Taufers (for the drive to Rein, carpools will be formed). Return at 5 p.m.

AdviceWe will hike trough typical high forests and partly abandoned alpine pastures to reach the glacier world of the Rieserfernergruppe mountain range. Lots of creeks, brooks and waterfalls, fed by the glaciers, will give you an idea of the abundance of water in this area. At the Tristennöckl summit (2,465 m) we can observe some arolla pine trees in their highest habitat in the Eastern Alps. The walk over boulders and moraines will bring us close to the edge of the floating ice which has vitally shaped the landscape.

Path descriptionStarting from Rein (1,595 m, route nr. 1) to the Kasselerhütte refuge (2,276 m) and heading towards the Schneebiger Nock mountain to the Malersee lake (2,501 m). The return will be along the same route. Rests for refreshments/meals possible.
