An autumn all for you

15 experiences to write your story in Trentino

AUTUMN 2023 – Autumn is the season for those who love stories. To listen to, to read and to experience firsthand. It is the season of landscapes set on fire by the foliage colours. It is the season of woods, lakes and mountains that become silent again after the great summer party.

It is the ideal season to discover the truest Trentino, the land of those who live it every day and are happy to tell you about it. It is the right autumn to enjoy a good story, perhaps taking inspiration from these 15 experiences that we have gathered for you.


Sounds of the Dolomites

Classical music, jazz, world music, songwriting: music of all kinds and from all places in a theater with the Dolomites as a backdrop and the Trentino sky as a roof. Until October you can attend the high-altitude concerts of Sounds of the Dolomites. An experience to try, at least once.


Unusual autumn flavours

The appointment is on 7 and 14 October, in the Adamello Brenta Natural Park, at an altitude of 2100 metres, immersed in the bright autumn colours. Two days to taste the traditional cheeses of Val Rendena and meet local producers and mountain experts.


Autumn Dolomites

The beauty of the Dolomites, the hospitality of mountain huts and the pleasure of making friends and new experiences. In autumn, 6 refuges in Val di Fassa organise special experiences on autumn weekends. Discover the schedule!


The month of taste

What is the tastiest month of the year? It is certainly October, at least on Lake Garda and its surroundings, thanks to a rich calendar of events intended to cater to the heart (and belly) of food lovers. From seasonal harvests to festivals, there is something for all tastes!



Autumn is the harvest season, especially in Val di Non, famous throughout the world for its apple orchards. From 15 September to 22 October (on weekends) you too can participate in this event, picking apples from trees, befriending the farmer and having a snack at the farmhouse. Seize the opportunity!


Trentodoc Festival

From 22 to 24 September 2023, the city of Trento and the Trentino cellars will host the second edition of Trentodoc Festival: three days to taste, learn, share and make friends with mountain sparkling wines. A party that involves guests, insiders, journalists and enthusiasts, with a rich calendar of events. Discover all the events!



Autumn is the month of wine, especially in Val di Cembra, which celebrates the harvest with two major events: gourmet trekking through vineyards and Caneve en Festa, the festival of wineries that open their doors to guests. And there will also be masterclasses, wine events, aperitifs and visits to the cellar on the schedule on the other days of the week.

Giro del vino 50 wine tour

Giro del vino 50 wine tour

How about a bike ride passing through vineyards, villages and waterways, and then stops in cellars and distilleries? We are talking about the Giro del Vino 50, an experience to be enjoyed in Piana Rotaliana, home of Teroldego Rotaliano, the prince of Trentino wines. 


Festival dello Sport

The Sport Festival is back again this year, from 12 to 15 October: the appointment that brings sporting champions to Trento to meet the public, debate and tell exciting stories. There is no shortage of camps to try sports firsthand and live events. The theme of this edition? The great beauty!


On Pale di San Martino

Autumn colours are beautiful, but they become wonderful when you see them from the terrace of a mountain hut. And if the peaks of Pale di San Martino are the frame, then the experience becomes one that makes your heart beat faster. Go up to the hut, taking advantage of the autumn openings of cableway systems.


Moonlight walks

You've probably already heard of Urban Trekking, but perhaps you've never thought of trying it at night, hiking by the light of the moon. You can enjoy this experience in Rovereto, with a selection of routes including one along the Leno stream, to let you discover a new and mysterious side of the city.


The Pantry of the Alpe

Mark 28 and 29 October in your calendar, and then go up to Alpe Cimbra for this two-day event, to get to know and taste the agri-food products of Trentino. Conferences, related experiential workshops, the “Producers’ Market”, guided activities to discover the places of production - open farms, trekking of taste, biking with taste. In short… there is something for all tastes!


Gravity in Paganella

The first weeks of autumn are the best for those who love the gravity world! The bike parks are still open and the days get cooler, inviting you to try out new trails. The Dolomiti Paganella Bike Area, with its 3 bike zones and 9 ski lifts, is a point of reference for the bike world


Feel good in Valsugana

The peace of lakes, the green of woods and mountains: in autumn Valsugana is an oasis of tranquility, ideal for a wellness break. A regenerating bath in the thermal waters of Levico, a yoga session on the shores of the lake, a slow paced walk on the cycle trail. You feel better already, don’t you?


Listen to the bellowing of deer

An unmistakable love song that echoes in the woods in autumn. Come and visit us in Val di Sole, to participate in excursions with the experts of the Stelvio National Park. Do not miss an excursion in the woods at night, to see deer and other animals with the help of infrared lenses.
