If hiking is one of your favourite pastimes, at the Vilpianerhof you have come to the right place. And there are a few good reasons to validate it. First of all, around our hiking hotel in Vilpian/Terlan you will find a varied network of hiking trails which leaves nothing to be desired. In the valley, you will find comfortable paths to stroll along, while challenging but nonetheless rewarding hiking destinations will await you on higher elevations. It is possible to set off for several destinations right on our doorstep. In all the other cases, you will comfortably reach your starting point using the public means of transport or even the ropeway, which is just a five minutes’ walk away and will take you from Vilpian to the Tschögglberg plateau. In addition, your host, Hansjörg Althuber, will guide you once a week on one of the most beautiful hiking trails in the vicinities. As a certified mountain guide, he is also the ideal contact person when it comes to hints and suggestions for hiking experience.
