High above the clouds

4 incredible experiences to do above 3000 metres of altitude 

"Three Metres above Heaven" is the title of a famous novel by Federico Moccia. Inspired to reach new heights, we dare to take you even further…three thousand metres above the clouds. How? With four unique experiences you can only aspire to do in Trentino.

Ride the cable car from Pejo, gaze 360-degrees across the mountain peaks at the heart of the Ortles - Cevedale range. Then, trek to the Vioz-Mantova mountain hut; not far from here, you can get a culture-fix at the highest museum in Europe set at an altitude of 3632m. Stay in Val di Sole - this time at Passo Tonale – and uplift your holiday in Trentino: enjoy an aperitif at the skybar on the Presena glacier and reach high notes of relaxation in a trendy spa.


Panorama 3000 Glacier: Aperitif on the rocks

On the other side of Val di Sole, the only thing between you and a jaw-dropping view is a glass of Trentodoc, at 3000 metres of altitude. Panorama 3000 Glacier is the sky bar atop the Presena glacier, a stunning lookout point and the largest glacier on the Italian Alps. You can reach the bar without breaking a sweat via both the Paradiso cable car and the Presena cable car.


Capanna Presena: Relaxation at the top

After sipping apertivi at the sky bar, descend with the cable car and stop at the historic Rifugio Alpino Capanna Presena, today a trendy bolthole thanks to the addition of a new wellness centre: warm alpine materials paired to contemporary design create a lush oasis of soothing saunas and hydro-therapy pools boasting spectacular views on the glacier.    


Punta Linke Museum, a war time capsule

A trip down memory lane to retrace the dramatic events that 100 years ago struck on the magnificent mountains of Val di Pejo. Punta Linke, half-hour hike from the Vioz-Mantova refuge, a strategic base during WWI, is today a time-capsule hosting the highest war museum in Europe, 3632m above sea level.


Vioz-Mantova: Sleeping at high altitude  

It’s the highest mountain hut in Trentino at the foot of Mount Vioz (3645m). The hike can be challenging, but it’s all about the reward: breathtaking views of ice-capped mountains for an authentic feeling of being on top of the world. Sleeping here, above the clouds, and watch the sunrise is a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
