Kids in Nature: the Haflinger Adventure Trail

Hiking on the trails of the Haflinger horses

The Haflinger Adventure Trail horse trail on the Avelengo – Verano – Merano 2000/Hafling – Vöran – Meran 2000 plateau is a leisurely walk for everyone. It’s a wonder-world for the kids to explore and passable for strollers. The path takes its name from the docile and majestic Haflinger horses with their flaxen manes. Indeed, these magnificent quadrupeds take their name from the village of Avelengo. The farmers on the plateau above the spa town of Merano have long used these sturdy, reliable beasts to work their fields.

The easily accessible Haflinger Adventure Trail horse trail also runs along the old transport route that once connected the various settlements all the way to the settlement of Santa Caterina/St. Kathrein. At the didactical stations along the way, there’s plenty to learn about the Haflinger horses and how they evolved over time. One learns how their status changed from beasts of burden to domestic farm animals. There is also some information about how their physical features originated. “FOLY”, the mascot, is always ready to help direct hikers along the right path.
The best time of the year for walking the Hafling Pferdeweg trail is between spring and autumn.
