Hiking tours in the alps: Stelvio National Park and Ortler Cevedale

A beautiful hut to hut hiking trip across the uncontaminated nature of Stelvio National Park, land of lakes and glaciers, will lead you through the valleys of Trentino and South Tyrol and across several alpine landscapes.

The natural sceneries change constantly: from meadows and pasture to the red rocks surrounding the huts, from the sparkling Saent waterfalls to the snowy valleys and the crystal clear lakes of Cevedale… up to the vast and solitary Careser glacier which offers an overwhelming view extending from the Ortler Cevedale mountain range, to the peaks of Adamello and Brenta Dolomites mountain ranges.

A 6-day guided hiking tour to the discovery of Val di Rabbi, Val di Peio and Val Martello accommodating in comfortable and cozy alpine huts.
