via vigilius

based on a concept by Ulrich Ladurner


6,970 m altitude difference uphill
7,090 m altitude difference downhill
109.2 km length of the trail
8 days time needed

The long distance trail was opened on the 28th May 2016. The Initiator of via vigilius and owner of the vigilius mountain resort, Ulrich Ladurner, wanted to create a long-distance hiking trail, which follows the footsteps of Bishop Vigilius from the Vigiljoch to Trento.

The via vigilius is a long distance hiking trail commencing at the mountain station of the tram to the Vigiljoch and concluding in the village of Vela, just outside the town of Trento. The trail can be segmented and experienced in eight separate stages. These single stages of the Via Vigilius can be hiked as day tours. Good public transportation, such as scheduled bus routes and trains, make it easy to reach the starting point of the single stages, and also facilitates re-entry. However, it is a very special and worthy experience to hike the entire trail in seven or eight days.

simply : feel the autumn.

09.10.2022 - 16.10.2022

On our special island up in the mountains, at 1500 above sea level, autumn comes with its bright colours. Cool nights replace the mild temperatures of the last months and the forest inhabitants prepare for hibernation.

Breathe in ... Breathe out ... Fill yourself with energy. Relax during a calming massage at the vigilius mountain spa and let yourself be pampered by autumn aromas and flavours at our Restaurant 1500. The pink traits of the Dolomites kissed by the sun, the warm colours of the larch forest surrounding the vigilius, together with the scents of resin and moss can give some peace and rest to your mind and soul.

Take some regenerating time for you at the vigilius! We have prepared a vivid programme of activities you can choose from to live a slow and pleasant journey by us.

Here you will find the programme.
