Between Trentino and South Tyrol, lakes and glaciers of Ortles Cevedale

6-7 Days

Hiking through the alpine valleys of Stelvio National Park is also a journey through the regions of Trentino and Alto Adige across valleys and wonderful alpine landscapes.

The natural scenery varies constantly, from meadows of flowers on the valley floors, to the pastures of the mountains farms, to the sparkling waters of the torrents and waterfalls, then climbing to the snowy valleys and to the lakes formed at  the base of the glaciers.

Excursions over six days consisting of hiking from one mountain cabin to another while exploring the valleys of Val di Rabbi, Val di Peio and Val Martello, while based in cosy and homely mountain refuges.
