A dinner in a mountain hut? The pleasure of a little adventure!
With your snowshoes, onboard a snowmobile or a snow cat
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!
After a snowshoe walk
You can reach the Fuciade mountain hut on foot or by snowmobile. The route is simple: from the San Pellegrino Pass it takes about 40 minutes on snowshoes. Once you arrive you will be greeted with the traditional Ladin cuisine prepared by chef Sergio Rossi and his son Martino.
A snowmobile ride before dinner
Are your ready for a winter meal that will take you back to your childhood? You reach the farmhouse by snowmobile and then slide back onboard a toboggan! Want to try? Then head to the Malga Fratazza farmstead, in the woodlands of the Alpe Tognola mountains, under the enchanting gaze of the Pale di San Martino Dolomites.
Food, snow and art
Art and gourmet cuisine, but also a magnificent view across the Dolomites and, of course, plenty of snow! If this sounds right for you, we suggest you have a meal at the Caserina Chalet, in Pampeago, located along the “artistic” Agnello slope of the Latemar Ski Centre with its exhibits by artists from around the world. You can get here by snowmobile or with the snow cat offered by the chalet.
Dinner in front of the fireplace
How about a dinner in a mountain hut located in the spruce forests of the Adamello Brenta Natural Park? Inside you will be warmly greeted by a wood-burning stove and traditional Trentino cuisine whereas outside you might catch a glimpse of the moonlight as it illuminates the snowy peaks of the Brenta Dolomites. To get here you can hop on a snow cat.
A toast in the torchlight
The mountain guides of Pinzolo Val Rendena – known as Mountain Friends – propose a spectacular evening snowshoe excursion, every Thursday from January to March, to the Doss del Sabion. With torches in hand you then reach the Malga Cioca mountain lodge where you can enjoy an italian aperitif under the stars.
