Easy mountain excursions to do in spring

Start training!

Lose yourself in nature to rediscover your inner-balance and vitality. As spring brings more daylight and warmth in the air, you can’t hold it back any longer: it’s time to shake off the winter cobwebs and get active. But what’s the best way to do it, you ask? Start with something simple like a walk, slowly embracing the beauty of nature around you.

Take a look at our 8 easy excursions in the mountains, get ready for summer and enjoy the regenerating powers of nature in an exceptional outdoor gym: the Dolomites and Lake Garda.


Coste di Baone

A 5-km loop itinerary starting from Arco and going up Monte Baone. In the first section, the path crosses the gentle olive slopes of the “Fontanelle” before passing under the vertical walls of the “Bus de la Stria”, arriving at the foot of the Placche del Baone. The views along the route open up over the entire Garda Trentino basin.


On the Monte of Mezzocorona

The thrill of the cable car, that will take you up and back again, is always something to look forward to. Once you get to the top you’ll enjoy a splendid view across the Rotaliana Königsberg and, with an easy walk also suitable for families, you will enter the forest paths until you reach Malga Kraun.


The air is fresher on Paganella

Pace yourself and enjoy each step, each breath of fresh air. Go hiking on the Brenta Dolomites and around Lake Molveno, take time to smell the wildflowers and stop for that “wow” moment gazing across the mountains, truly breathtaking.


Up to the Rifugio Altissimo mountain lodge

The trail winds its way through the Monte Baldo Natural Park, a protected area characterised by its exceptional biodiversity. Once you reach the Rifugio Altissimo Damiano Chiesa you’ll be amazed by the fantastic view of Lake Garda, 2,000 metres below. Eleonora and her staff will also amaze you with some typical Trentino dishes.


The living trees

A themed itinerary on contemporary art in the middle of the woods: here the true works of art are the trees themselves. Each sculpture is a discreet reflection of its surroundings. The trail, that starts at the characteristic hamlet of Lanzino, follows an easy forest road to a panoramic location.


The Val di Fassa

It’s not just about long arduous treks, springtime in the Val di Fassa also offers a number of easier trails, suitable for everyone. The itinerary that we propose here is a good example. You take off from the square in Pozza di Fassa and follow the Avisio river up to the Piciocaa area. This path is also suitable for pushchairs.


“Castel Belasi” castle

An easy route that winds through the orchards of the lower Val di Non, passing little-known villages and artistic jewels such as the “Castel Belasi” castle and the small church of Saints Filippo and Giacomo. Spring is certainly a great time to take this route, surrounded by apple orchards in bloom and a view that sweeps across a unique white carpet!


The Muse Fedaie in the Paneveggio Nature Park

Discover one of the Dolomites’ most beautiful valleys with this easy family-friendly hike. The route runs for a good half along the theme path known as the Muse Fedaie and includes a visit to the small Welsperg lake. We also recommend visiting the Park’s headquarters with the various theme trails.
