Our last trip, just the two of us… crazy, if you think a bit longer about it. Our last vacation as a couple without children. 😉 Wuhuu… Every future trip will be with one tiny person more – and we can’t wait for it! But we fully enjoyed this last week, well aware that it will be the last one. So we soaked in everything we could.
We started with a tiny hike to the “Pragser Wildsee” – totally aware, that this lake will be full of tourists… but honestly, I didn’t expect thaaat much. And this huge parking lot… right next to the lake… anyway, still a very scenic lake. After that we drove to the Rifugio Auronzo, where you can park over night and start an easy hike around the “Drei Zinnen / Three Peaks”. The road and overnight stay to the rifugio parking lot costs 25 Euro per day … but if you drive through the gate after hours, nobody cared. We didn’t know that 😉 but noticed it – also only pay for one day, nobody will check you, when exactly you drive down. So we hiked around the three peaks and also made a little detour to the “Drei Zinnen Hütte”, where you have an amazing view. If you wanna do a longer hike to the hut, check the Lea’s blog Escape Town for an amazing report and photos!
After that we drove a bit further to do another hike to the Lago di Sorapis! Also discovered this one via Instagram… also an easy hike (ok, a bit more exhausting, if you’re nine month pregnant, but if you’re used to hike, it’s quite ok)! The lake is very nice and cold and full of people. Note to myself, wake up earlier… but yeah! The vibe there was more outdoor swimming pool/stretch than a quite mountain lake. 🙁 Most of the people had no respect for the beautiful nature up there… we took some images and went back.
We drove to the top of the Sellajoch mountain road and parked infront of the “Steinerne Stadt“, where the husband could boulder a bit again. It’s super scenic and beautiful, but the boulders are kinda hard to find. You can sport climbing there as well, but the routes are very short, though.
And another tourist trap is the Karersee / Lago di Carezza, but still very nice to see. Those colors of the water are just unreal and the little fable about the water nymph is very nice! But yeah… you can’t get to down to the shore, just walking around. So if you have any question, about this trip, let me know! For all the wild campers – there are many options for parking you home somewhere and nobody cared! Perfect!
