Sunrise hike on Monte Pez with breakfast at the Schlernhaus mountain refuge

Hikes/trips Seiser Alm
If you hadn’t realised it before, when the first rays of sun timidly appear on the surrounding peaks you will see just how much it was worth getting up so early. A sunrise mountain tour on the Schlern mountain is a very special experience.
The meet-up point with the mountain guides is in Compatsch on the Seiser Alm at 4 am. From here, a shuttle bus will take you to the Saltner Tschapit hut, where the ascent begins. Equipped with headlamps, you will arrive at Monte Petz (2,564 m) at around 6:50, in perfect time for the sunrise. After this natural spectacle, a well-earned breakfast awaits you at the Schlernhaus mountain refuge, also known as the “castle in the mountains”.
