Tour information

The starting point of the circular tour around the Kleine Salve is the mountain station of the Salvista gondola lift. From there, we follow the signs to the first highlight of the route - the enchanting reservoir directly below the summit.
We continue towards Itter on trail n° 68 to the 'Krallwies' junction. From there we walk along the forest path downhill towards Itter / Hopfgarten. Above the Schorn-Hof, one of the highest farms in the Brixen Valley, we turn right towards the Kraftalm. The trail now gradually climbs uphill through a shady mountain forest - where skiers and snowboarders roar down into the valley in winter.
After a little over an hour's walk, we reach the Kraftalm. The mountain hotel, newly built in 2020, invites is to take a break on the beautiful terrace. This is a great way to revitalise tired legs before returning uphill to the starting point in about an hour.
If you prefer to save yourself the climb, you can take the Salvistabahn cable car from the Kraftalm back to the summit of the Kleine Salve or back to Itter in the valley.
