Introduction:The sun trail “sunnsat” is a net of ways and invites to walk and to peregrinate. These ways in the times gone by, were used by smugglers and for other things. Now doing this ways you can pass the blooming fields, the mixed forest and the traditional farms.

Theme of the walk:The round of the huts takes us to very traditionally huts and the flowerfields on the sunny side of the Alps of Zillertal. We enjoy the view of the glaciers, of the Dolomites and of the group of Rieserferner. The farmer produces the natural foods and return to the land what he has taken from. We can see the difficult life in the past and we can see also the less difficult life of today. When we get hungry, we can order the “Teldra Köscht”, the gastronomic specialties of the valley.
