The Spronser lakes in the nature park Texelgruppe form the highest lake district in Europe.
General description

The Sopranes Lakes (Spronser Seen) belong to South Tyrol’s largest high alpine lake district and are part of the Gruppo di Tessa Nature Park, South Tyrol’s largest nature park. These lakes supply parts of the town of Merano with water. Moreover these lakes represent a very popular hiking destination both for adults and children.

The circular trail to the largest alpine group of lakes in South Tyrol, the Spronser Seen, is a challenging but worthwhile and beautiful mountain tour, right in the heart of the nature park Texelgruppe.  During this hike you will experience an impressive, still largely untouched high mountain landscape. There are ten lakes in total, which are embedded in steps one above the other in alpine pastures and rounded rocky humps.

Route description

Route: Starting at the Leiter Alm, take path # 24 in the direction of the Hochgang refuge hut. There, turn right and ascend on a steep path to the Hochgangscharte (2,441 metres) - only for people who do not get dizzy easily. At the gap, turn left and take path # 6 to the Spronser Valley and the Oberkaser Alm (2,131 metres / open during the summer). Take path # 25 to your right and pass the Kaser- and Pfitscherlacke and make your way to the Karjoch (2,230 metres / Taufenscharte). Descend on a steep and windy path to the Leiter Alm. You can also hike the circular trail the other way around.
