A dinner in a mountain hut? The pleasure of a little adventure!

With your snowshoes, onboard a snowmobile or a snow cat

WINTER 2019/2020 - A trip to Trentino in winter wouldn’t be complete without an evening meal amongst the mountain peaks: in a mountain hut, a farmhouse or a chalet.

Embraced by the warm wooden furnishings and a welcoming atmosphere, as soon as you step through the door you will be greeted by the aroma of tortel di patate (traditional potato cakes), served with platters of cured meats and tasty cheeses. As the snow drapes a blanket of silence across the woods outside, at the feet of the white capped Dolomites, you can enjoy a glass of Trentodoc sparkling wine before starting your meal.

And how do you reach the mountain hut? With a little adventure on the snow of course, which adds something special to this already unique experience. You could take a reinvigorating snowshoe trek under the moonlight or sweep across the fresh snow and through the silvery woodlands onboard a snowmobile or a snow cat.

That’s it. Once you arrive you can shake the snow from your boots, take off your cap and gloves and tuck in to a well-deserved meal. Buon appetito!

#1

A meal with the Eagles

A dinner of countless flavours, aromas… and stories to tell. Every Friday you too can spend some time with the “Aquile” (Eagles), the Mountain Guides of San Martino di Castrozza. Let them accompany you on a snowshoe trek up as far as the Malga Ces farmhouse for a traditional meal garnished with a spectacular view of the Pale di San Martino Dolomites.

Something out of a fairy tale

The wood and stone create a truly enchanted atmosphere at Malga Rocac, a mountain farmhouse built at the edge of the woods and facing the majestic mountains of the Val di Fassa. It can be reached by car but, weather permitting, you can get here on foot from the town of Moena, known as the Fairy of the Dolomites.

#3

A dinner… on tracks

A warm and welcoming mountain lodge, nestled in the green heart of the Adamello-Brenta Natural Park. The Cascina Zeledria restaurant, not far from Madonna di Campiglio, is the place to go if you appreciate grilled meats and cheese. Accessible by snowcat, a service provided by the restaurant.

#4

Dinner on the slopes

The perfect idea for anyone who, before sitting down to a well-deserved meal, wants to spend some time on the ski slopes. The Baita Tonda restaurant is located in the Val di Fiemme, in the Alpe Cermis, at the bottom of the Olimpia 3 piste. When the ski slopes remain open after dark, you can even get here by cable car.

#5

To dinner on a snowmobile

A ride on a snowmobile through the snow-covered woods of the Alpe Cimbra, to where the stars seem to shine brighter. This is what dinner at the Chalet Monte Cimone, in Lavarone, is all about. Traditional mountain cuisine, a stove to warm up the atmosphere and, on the right evenings, plenty of music too.
