Nature Park Walk: Vent – Ramolalm

Vent is where the roads end and the footpaths begin. It's a serene, peaceful spot to enjoy. At the southerly edge of the Ötztal Alps’ wilderness, almost touching the Italian border, lies a truly unique and beautifully remote Alpine place, a true haven for walkers, hikers and mountaineers. Take the remote, flower-filled trails up to the rocky Alpine terrain of giant glaciers. One of these trails takes you to the a cabin remnant of Ramolalm. The trail up is easy and takes roughly one hour to complete. Along, up, and around old-growth stone pines, you will especially enjoy gallivanting through this grotto-like section of trail. Once up at Ramolalm, enjoy an unobstructed view of Similaun, deeply shrouded in legend, jagged Talleitspitze Peak and the summit of famous Ötztal Wildspitze that sets the scene. On this walk you’ll have a great adventure--and you'll find your camera full of some of the best pictures of Niedertal Valley, where Oetzi the Iceman once walked, of Similaun, of Ötztal Wildspitze and Weißkugel Peaks you'll ever get. This hike is a great way to escape urban life and be immersed in a peaceful Alpine environment that provides a primordial experience where you are dwarfed by nature. Plus, there are great photo opportunities.
