Vigiljoch in the narrower sense refers to a 1743 m s.l.m. high crossing over the northeastern foothills of the Zufrittkamms of the Ortler Alps in South Tyrol (Italy). This is located between smaller, mostly wooded hilltops and is the site of the church of St. Vigil am Joch with frescoes from the 14th century. In a broader sense, Vigiljoch is also used to refer to the surrounding mountain ridge, without distinctive peaks, which rises between the lower Vinschgau, the Burggrafenamt around Meran and the entrance of the Ultental valley, and which, in the south-westerly direction, increases significantly in height to the Naturnser Hochjoch.

Via the Vigiljoch, the local mountain of Lana, we finally hike to the Naturnser Alm, where we can enjoy a wonderful view of the Vinschgau, the Texel group and the Ötztal Alps with the glaciated peak of Weißkugel. Over the Lack, a small mountain lake, it goes with a view of the Ultental - past the Bärenbadalm - back to the mountain station of the Vigiljoch cable car.
