5 Activities for kids on the Italian Alps
Tibetan bridges, climbing in the forest: enjoy an outdoor holiday
In spring, the mountains in Trentino bask in a new reenergizing light as nature awakens. Lengthening days and warmer weather invite us to spend time outside, catching a breath of fresh air under clear blue skies. This is an ideal time of the year to venture outdoor especially with children. Here are 5 suggestions to keep your kids active!
If you love exploring the woods, then you can’t miss these excursions run by forest ranger Damiano. The themed tour “The awaking of the Forest” will take you along the most picturesque mountain paths of the Alpe Cimbra discovering local flora and wildlife.
A walk in the “Wonderland”
Known as “Sentiero delle Meraviglie”, The Wonderland Path,“Jouf de Sent’Ujana” in Val di Fassa is a pleasant walking trail, suitable for everyone, inspiring mountain goers to reflect on the deep connection between man and nature. Agritur Majon da Mont is an ideal stopover with lovely views on the Catinaccio.
Balancing on the suspension bridge
For those not afraid of heights, the walk to the Ragaiolo waterfall with its spectacular suspension bridge in Val di Sole is a pleasant outdoor experience. Peek through the cables to catch glimpses of the stream and the waterfall below: feel the adrenaline rush 100 metres above the ground! Continue to reach Malga Fratte where you can replenish and rest.
Canyon Rio Sass
The Rio Sass canyon is found in the heart of Fondo and has been shaped by the water, as it flows through the town. Since 2001, a thrilling - particularly for children - path is available and takes visitors on a tour of its swirling waters and waterfalls as well as to admire its cliffsi, fossils, stalagmites and stalactites.
Rock climbing and bouldering
Valle di Ledro offers plenty of scope for rock climbing and bouldering on various cliffs of medium difficulty. The Pizzocol cliff, in Val Concei, is particularly suitable for families and those just starting off with this exciting sport.
