2 days in the mountains of Garda Trentino and 1 night in Rifugio Pernici
Sleeping in a mountain hut is always a thrill. This excursion has an overnight stay in the mountains followed by a super panoramic hike back down to Riva del Garda
Hike though the woods of holm oak first and then of beeches and spruces to the mountain hut Rifugio Pernici, renowned for its home-made local specialities. Sleep at the Rifugio after a tasty dinner. Watch the dawn steal across the sky outlining the peaks one by one.
Then head back down to the lake along the ridge which divides Garda Trentino from Valle di Ledro enjoying a series of breathtaking views from the Brenta Dolomites to Lakes Garda and Ledro, as you make your way down the sheer rock which towers above Riva del Garda.
On the second day, the trek follows the Sentiero della Pace or Peace Trail, a long distance trail along the most important sites of the Front during the Great War. Around Rifugio Pernici, which was originally built as the officers' canteen, and as far as Bocca Saval there are numerous remains of trenches and barricade dating back to the war. This was in fact the Austro-Hungarian line of defence.
