Alpine cattle drive in South Tyrol

Awash with floral blooms & an agricultural tradition

October in the Ahrntal Valley is a time for relaxing hikes and extended walks – the forests are a lovely red-gold hue, the mountains are already announcing the approaching winter and depict a picturesque setting for the alpine cattle drive in South Tyrol.

The cows are returning to the valley from the alpine pastures – accompanied by a celebratory procession on their way. Floats, wonderfully adorned cattle, farmers, visitors and of course music make this custom an experience each and every year. In Sand in Tures, where the alpine cattle drive & the harvest festival are celebrated, with happy vibes all around, locals and visitors get to enjoy traditional South Tyrolean delights.
