The tour into the Venter Valley and back to Sölden is long at 40 kilometers, but the almost 700 meters in altitude are very evenly distributed. In addition, the asphalt surface ensures that it always rolls smoothly. At the same time, the highest point of the tour is reached there at 2014m. The starting point for this tour is the Freizeit Arena in Sölden. From there you drive along the Ötztaler Bundesstraße to Zwieselstein, where you then turn right into the Ventertal. In Vent, the road continues in the direction of Rofen. There are two rest stops there. In addition, one has a breathtaking view of the surrounding mountains of Vent from the highest farms in Austria!

Tips and suggestions

Splendid Rofenhöfe farms are Austria's highest, permanently settled farmhouses. A mountain inn can be found there. The secluded mountain village of Vent looks back on a lively history. For a long time the farmhouses belonged to noble families from South Tyrol's Vinschgau region. Still today, some 2000 sheep are driven from Schnalstal valley to the Vent's lush pasturelands every summer. A millennium-old path which probably was also used by Ötzi - The Iceman, who was found in the immediate surroundings.
