Hiking tour to Juac and Stevia mountain hut

Mountain hike starting at Col Raiser to Juac and Stevia hut, and back via Firenze hut with an amazing view and fantastic panorama.

We start at Santa Cristina and take the cable car till the mountain top of Col Raiser. There we have to take the path No. 4 which leads us to Gamsblut hut. In front of us the valley and the impressive Sassolungo (Langkofel). After crossing a forest trail we walk up to Juac hut, which is placed on a sunny hill. From here the real rise starts, first through the woods and later on in serpentine till the tree limit. Here you get rewarded with an amazing view to Val Gardena with Santa Cristina and Ortsei till Siusi alp with the Sciliar.

Now steps are leading you to the mountain gorge San Silvestro, which is separating mountain Stevia from mountain Steviola. We are following the path under the south wall, first downhill and further up to Stevia hut, which is surrounded by green meadows. The view is wonderful and amazing, you can see Gardenaccia-plateau, Vallunga, Cir, group Sella, pass Sella and the group of Sassolungo.

The path no. 17 is leading us further up to the mountain gorge Piza, which is placed under the top of mountain Stevia (2.556 mt). Always having Seceda and group Geisler in front of you we are walking downhill the path no. 17B to the Rifugio Firenze hut. From there Col Raiser isn’t far anymore.
