Things to do in Rio Lagundo when the rain tries to ruin your day

We had this trip planned months back and finally that one day arrived! Hotel has been booked and paid already so our only choice was going even if the weather report said that it would rain! Upon arrival, at the reception desk of the Hotel Garni An Der Leit, we received the "AlgundCard" which gives free access to many benefits like public transportation, museums, cable cars, and discount on bike and ski rentals and so on. That was absolutely fantastic! We used it for going up to Rio Lagundo. When I saw the price board at the cable car station I had idea the amount we'd have paid without AlgundCard! The round trip cost €9.50. There were of course extra charges for pets, bikes and children. As I told you first guest with the Algund Card could travel with the cable car for free. Rio Lagundo was a small mountain village placed 1360 meters high to Lagundo. From July 2017 this idyllic village could be easily reached by a modern cable car from the RablĂ  station (525 meters high) which was open from 8.00 am to 7 pm. Their lunch break went from 12.30 to 13.30. During the warm season, the village seemed much appreciated destination for trips since it offered pleasant excursions both by walk and by bicycle. We planned to do a lot in Rio Lagundo but when we reached the place the weather was slowly getting upset. We had a quick walk around and we decided to have lunch before doing any other thing! The restaurant Gasthaus Aschbacher Hof was the one close to the cable car station. There was nothing to say about its location! It was of course breathtaking! They offered traditional dishes in the large garden in front of the mountains. Everything looked just fantastic. They had a farm with rabbits, cows, goats and hens. Marvelous area for children as well. Unfortunately we didn't notice the size of the portion before ordering so each of us ordered a single plate. Only when the food arrived to the table we realized that the portions were very very big. One plate would have been more than enough for two. When we saw the piece of cake that the waiter was serving to the lady sitting on the table next to us we decided against it! It was enormous! Out of this everything was perfect, the staff was friendly, the food had a homemade aspect and the price very reasonable! Meanwhile the sky was getting darker and darker! We started to realize that probably hiking up to S. Vigilio might have been impossible! In fact heavy rain came down the moment we ended up with our lunch! Even though we didn't want to give up, we waited some time to start our walk at least just around the village before getting back to the cable car station! Thanks God the rain stopped for a while!!! We could then have a rapid turnaround! We visited the lovely church of San Mary of the snow and the cute little village itself! This is all we could do due to the rain. I loved that peaceful place! Would love to go back!
