Do you feel spring coming on?

15 ideas for capturing all the energy of the beautiful season

SPRING 2024 - A walk in the woods to hear the streams flowing, full of energy again after the winter silence. A bike ride to see the meadows regaining their colour. Or a picnic by the lake to share the first sunny days with friends. So many experiences which give you energy. This is what spring in Trentino is all about.

Tante proposte diverse, che cambiano di paesaggio in paesaggio, perché sono esperienze che si nutrono di aria, boschi, acqua e montagne. Esperienze che puoi vivere in questi posti, e da nessun’altra parte.

We have put together 15 of them to give you all the energy of spring in Trentino!

#1

Cycling through flowers and colours

In spring, “La ciclabile dei fiori” cycling path, between Val Rendena and Valle del Chiese, radiates with the colours of the blooms, with over 600 species of flowers. Icing on the cake? The eco-printing activity you can participate in. This is a bike tour, during which there is a workshop to learn how to transfer the natural colours of plants and flowers onto clothes.

#2

Lake sport is sweeter

A bike ride, a walk in the mountains, a stand-up paddleboarding adventure on the surface of the water, and then a panoramic aperitif or a nice dinner overlooking the lake: on Lake Garda the en plein air combines with relaxation and the Mediterranean lifestyle. We call it “Italian Outdoors”. For anyone who visits us, it is simply the best way to experience spring days.

#3

Hike & Bike

A short distance from Trento, on the Altopiano di Piné, you will find the Serraia and Delle Piazze lakes, two bodies of water from which a network of dirt tracks and mountain bike trails branch off, totalling over 200 km of routes. These circuits vary in length and difficulty, passing through breathtaking vantage points and places of cultural and natural interest. Why not try them this spring?

#4

Riding through woods and vineyards

How about a ride through Val di Fiemme or Val di Cembra? Two neighbouring valleys capable of giving you such different views. In Val di Fiemme, you pedal in view of the Latemar Group and among the fir trees of the Paneveggio-Pale di San Martino Nature Park, while in Val di Cembra you immerse yourself in vineyards and glimpses of rural life.

#5

A bike ride among vineyards and wineries

How about a bike ride past vineyards, villages, streams and rivers, stopping at wineries and distilleries? This is the “Giro del Vino 50” wine trail, an experience on the Piana Rotaliana, home of Teroldego Rotaliano, the prince of Trentino wines.

#6

The Mountains: Between Sunset and the Full Moon

Have you ever seen the forest at night, illuminated by the full moon? If you are not afraid of werewolves, this is the experience for you! Every night of the full moon, on Monte Baldo, in Lessinia, on Monte Zugna, in the Leno Valleys, you can participate in a group walk at sunset, with dinner in a mountain hut, and look at the sky. At the end of the evening, you will return to the valley as a group, guided by the light of the moon.

#7

Street food and street art

Street performers, comic fanfares, circus artists, marching bands and, of course, lots of good food, including street food. We are talking about Arcadia Street Festival on 3 and 4 June in Caldes, in Val di Sole. It is the perfect opportunity to discover one of Italy's most beautiful villages and visit its famous castle.

#8

Bike parks reopen

In late spring, the bike parks reopen, such as those in the Dolomiti Paganella Bike area, the undisputed hub for gravity enthusiasts. The Dolomiti Paganella Bike Opening is the weekend of 31 May to 2 June. Don't miss it!

#9

Fiorinda, the apple blossom festival

It is one of the most eagerly awaited events of spring in Trentino. On 13 and 14 April, the Val di Non turns white and pink for this festival that pays homage to the blossoming of the apple trees. Culture, food and wine, fruit growing, experiences and activities that will help you discover everything that makes the Trentino PDO apple valley unique.

#10

Spring in Val Canali

At the foot of the Pale di San Martino mountains is a verdant valley where you stroll through forests, streams and flower-filled meadows. We are talking about Val Canali, one of the most enchanting places in Trentino. Many different activities are planned here to celebrate the awakening of nature, including hikes, tastings and workshops. We look forward to seeing you!

#11

Art in Nature

There is a special place in Trentino where art merges with nature, creating works that seem to be born from the earth. Branches, stones, roots and trunks shaped by major artists from all over the world. We are talking about Arte Sella, the exhibition of contemporary art in nature. An excursion into art, in the heart of Valsugana.

#12

Relax and enjoy the view

Spring is the perfect season to do some outdoor sports to reawaken your muscles after the long winter. Provided, however, that after so much activity, you take a break, perhaps in a warm hot tub with a view of the Italian Alps. Outside, the cool summer air; inside, the warm embrace of the thermal waters. Where? At the QC Terme spa in Val di Fassa, of course!

#13

Mountain biking through forests and mountain villages

Alpe Cimbra is the ideal destination for those who love mountain biking: dirt roads through the woods, wonderful views of the mountains and trails that take you to explore villages and forts from the Great War. There are routes for everyone: from the long and strenuous ones for experienced mountain bikers to the flat ones for those who want to ride with children.

Cycle path with a view

The wind on your face, the scent of the woods as they slip by you and the sight of the Dolomites in the background: taking a ride along the Fiemme and Fassa Dolomites cycle path is an experience that involves all the senses! The route is 47 km long, but you can divide it into several stages... and maybe take a refreshing break at a bike rest stop along the way.
