    Egalement possibilité de raccourcir cette longue journée : Bus jusqu’à Trafoi puis télésiège jusqu’à la cab. Furkel = possibilité de ravitaillement mais pas de nuitée. De là, il reste env. 3 heures jusqu'au ref. Garibaldi. Dommage que les VTT descendent ce chemin qui leur est pourtant interdit entre 9.00 et 16.00 !!! Nous aurons un peu de pluie la dernière heure du trajet et ne verrons malheureusement pas le petit lac Goldsee.

    Also possibility of shortening this long day: Bus to Trafoi then chairlift to the cab. Furkel = possibility of refueling but no overnight stay. From there, it remains approx. 3 hours until ref. Garibaldi. Too bad the mountain bike down this path which is forbidden them between 9.00 and 16.00 !!! We will have some rain the last hour of the trip and unfortunately will not see the small Goldsee Lake.

    Wir haben im Hotel Stilfserjoch nach einem Zimmer gefragt und wurden sehr freundlich aufgenommen. Halbpension 65 €, Zimmer etwas abgewohnt, aber groß, mit schöner Aussicht und wirklich guten Betten.

    Oui, il y a beaucoup de VTTistes mais dans le PN du Stelvio, les randonneurs ont la priorité et la circulation des VTT est interdite entre 11h et 18h ; beaucoup ignorent le règlement - ou passent outre - mais ils doivent s'arrêter pour nous laisser passer !

    Yes, there are a lot of bikers but in the PN Stelvio, hikers have priority and ATV use is prohibited between 11h and 18h; many ignore the rules - or disregard - but they have to stop to let us pass!

    Toller Höhenweg, leider behindern sich hier bisweilen Wanderer und Mountainbiker auf dem schmalen Höhenweg. Rifugio Garibaldi als Unterkunft ist zu bevorzugen (siehe Etappe 71). Ansonsten originell aber enge Kammern in der Tibet-Hütte (Gasthof/Hotel), Tel.:+39.0342.903360
