Of course you can also reach Velloi comfortably by car or by chairlift! But if you want to earn the excellent offer of the gastronomy in Velloi, the hiking trail from Lagundo offers the perfect solution! High through the Grabbach, the hiking trail leads through the mixed forest, which again and again gives you a view of the surrounding area. Halfway, a small highlight awaits you: the Birnbam Eck: here the hiking trail leads through a large meadow, which is overgrown with ancient pear trees.
Once you have arrived in Velloi, nothing stands in the way of an excellent meal with a panoramic view, also because you can take it easy on the way back thanks to the chairlift or alternatively the bus connection to Lagundo.

Change of location: We are still in Lagundo, but we have changed the mountain: From Aschbach, a small fraction of Algund, which is located on the Monte Tramontana and can be reached with a new cable car to Rablà you can explore the San Viglio area or hike to the wonderfully located Naturnser Hut.
It is best to plan a circular hike, which will lead you over the Vigiljoch and from there return to the top station of the cable car.


schlundenstein 1k 3
Actually, the Schlundenstein is "only" a huge boulder above Lagundo. But it has it in itself: On the one hand, it is provided with numerous bowls. These human-made bowl-shaped depressions served as sacrificial and cult sites in pre-Christian times. On the other hand, the Schlundenstein is the highest point of the educational wine trail, from where you can return to the Algunder Waalweg. In spring, the Schlundenstein is also still a longing destination of boulder fans from Central and Northern Europe. While it is still cold and stormy there, they can climb routes with difficulty levels up to 8b here on the warm rock under the Lagundo sun.
