Val di Non’s apple orchards
In spring the whole Val di Non is enveloped in a cloudlike blossom. At first glance, it almost looks like snow but it is with the warmer weather that the apple trees put forth their most spectacular display of colours and fragrant smells. A blossom that is just as much of a treat for the eyes as its fruits are to the palate.
The grazing pastures of Dromaè in Val di Ledro are carpeted with white and pink wild daffodils and peonies offering a truly mesmerizing spectacle. As you walk through the fields look closer for other types of native flowers such as wild orchids, anemones and lilies.
A panoramic terrace on Lake Garda, named the Garden of Italy for its extraordinary biodiversity, Monte Baldo has been a popular destination amongst naturalists for the harvesting of officinal herbs since 1400. Don’t miss the golden glow of the buttercup in full bloom.
Wild flowering on the Lavazè highlands, in Val di Fiemme, offers an impressive floral display: delicate alpine crocus and bluebells dotted around thick clusters of purple heather. The scenery is particularly awe-inspiring at sunset when the dolomite stone of the Catinaccio is bathed with colourful reflections.
Under a bluebird sky, the pastures on Monte Casale are showered with the pastel colours of alpine crocus: yellow, white and pink sprinkles create the effect of an impressionist’s painting.
