What to expect
Authentic Local Experience:
Hay harvesting is a century old tradition, passed down from generation to generation and it’s carried on during the summer months on all the mountain communities in South Tyrol. You'll have the chance to learn this ancient tradition directly from a local farmer in the Ladin Valley of Val Gardena. As a reward from your hard work, you'll enjoy a break savoring a mouthwatering bbq prepared al fresco while taking in the in the wonderful landscape !
But don't get too relaxed, there's more hay to do if you still have some energy left. If not, just sit back, relaxed and enjoy this day completely immersed in mother nature.
After meeting your host at the parking lot, you will start your easy hike to reach the hut. The hike will last about 1h5 where you will have the chance to enjoy the breathtaking view of the Puez Olde peaks (400mt/1312 ft difference in altitude). Once arrived you will be a 2000mt/6561ft.
With a rake you will help picking up the hay and collect it in traditional cloths. You will spend a day in the nature and have an unforgettable experience!
This tour is best suitable for those staying in Val Gardena, however in case of stays in other towns and valleys, on request we can add transportation to and from the location. Please contact us firstname.lastname@example.org
