Enchanting snowy nights in Trentino

Magical moonlit walks on the snow

The white glow of the snow, the silvery light of moon, the infinite shimmer of stars, the calming embrace of nature and the magnificence of the mountains… You can experience a whole range of emotions when you step into Trentino’s outdoors at night. You can savour every moment of your mountain experience thanks to easy - and accessible to everyone – itineraries on the snow.

The fresher air, the endless night sky, the surreal atmosphere. This is what a night on Trentino’s mountains feels like. Here, you can embark on rewarding and remarkable journeys, face to face with a powerful and untainted nature as it reveals its deepest secrets. You can find adventures for everyone thanks to a large network of trails on the snow, accessible also at night in many locations. Choose to go on foot or with snowshoes, on your own or with an expert guide, in the moonlight or guided by a flaming torch, and perhaps you can stop at a farmstead and savour some genuine alpine specialities.

Here are six recommendations, for kids and grownups alike, for an unforgettable treat for all senses.

Torch lit nights in Pinzolo

The Alpine Guides in Pinzolo Val Rendena- also known as Mountain Friends- organise every Thursday evening fantastic snowshoes excursions to Doss del Sabion. You will reach the farmstead Malga Cioca guided by your own flaming torch. An aperitif under the stars, then make your way back on the cable car Tulot.


Passo San Pellegrino to Rifugio Fuciade

From Passo S. Pellegrino, near Moena, to the splendid Fuciade basin, an easy trail through the snow to attempt on foot, snowshoes or even on snowmobile. End the excursion on a tasty note at Rifugio Fuciade, gourmet dishes skillfully prepared by chef Sergio Rossi and his son Martino will be waiting for you. 


Folgaria, breathing nature

A dedicated trail through the surrounding forests where, since 2001, Italian and international artists have been displaying their contemporary art creations, inspired by trees as expressions of life. Starting from Lanazino, near Lavarone, you can go on foot, by fat bike, on horse or with snowshoes.


San Martino di Castrozza – Dinnner with The Eagles

The Eagles of San Martino, the local Alpine Guides, run a short excursion to Malga Ces, where you can enjoy a traditional meal prepared with authentic alpine produce. Farewell this beautiful evening with a snowmobile ride home.
