Getting bored made impossible!

The guest house Haus Engethal is situated at the beginning of the Val d’Ultimo valley, at its “own” mountain Monte San Vigilio which presents a range of diverse possibilities with its numerous hiking routes for everyone framed by its sunny panorama of the Dolomites. The famous water tracks of the surrounding area are ideal for leisure walks and characterized by gentle elevation and a wonderful view. The family Trafoier is at your disposal for any advice concerning the routes or also as a guide.

In case of bad weather Mrs Trafoier will be pleased to invite the guests into her kitchen where it is possible to assist at the preparation of the delicious dumplings or even participate actively where you might discover yourself being an enthusiastic cook.

Not far from the guest house Haus Engethal Italy’s biggest nature reserve the Stelvio National Park is located and it is absolutely worth the trip for a day out.
