Mountain Crossing from Val di Rabbi to Val di Peio

Ghiacciaio del Careser, Trentino

This itinerary consists of a relatively easy crossing of the Careser Glacier on a trail that has just recently been laid down that leads from the Valley of Val di Rabbi through to Val di Peio. The view you’ll witness along this route is incredible, including the peaks of the Ortles-Cevedale and Adamello-Presanella mountain groups right down to the Brenta Dolomites.

While your enjoying this outing in high altitude  you’ll also be able to discover even more about the two splendid alpine valleys within the Trentino part of the Stelvio National Park with their trails, lakes, waterfalls, streams, mountain refuges, meadows, fields and mountain livestock huts

A good balance between mountain hiking and moderate mountaineering.


    • Hiking in high altitude in the Ortles-Cevedale mountain group
    • From Val di Rabbi to Val di Peio crossing over the Careser glacier
