Walk this way
Whether you’re looking for a gentle stroll, or a hut-to-hut hike, we’ve got the perfect footpath
Obviously, a UNESCO-protected landscape like ours is a beautiful place to go for a walk. But there’s more to hiking in Trentino than staggering views.
We’re also home to a highly-developed infrastructure of trails, refuges and mountain guides. So however you like your hiking, you’ll find plenty of information and support.
The Dolomiti Panorama Trek, and the Dolomiti Brenta Trek explore some of our most spectacular landscapes. But there are well-maintained and well-signposted trails through every forest and on every massif. Some will take a couple of hours to walk. Others will last several days; and to break the journey you’ll find plenty of mountain refuges waiting with hearty suppers and comfortable beds en route.
You don’t have to be a mountain expert to take on these challenges. A reasonable level of fitness helps, of course: but when it comes to planning and route-finding, our experienced mountain guides are ready to help. This year they’re offering new, three-day guiding packages for hikers, which include two nights in a mountain hut. Thanks to your guide’s local knowledge, you’ll also get a much deeper understanding of the landscape you’re walking through.
Finally, if you’ve got a head for heights, how about adding a via ferrata to your itinerary? Half-way between a trail and a multi-pitch climb, these mountain routes trace intricate and ultra-steep paths up our rock faces. They’re made safe and relatively straightforward by the addition of a steel cable (which you clip onto), as well as ladders, pegs and bridges. Led by a guide, and equipped with helmets and special harnesses, anyone who’s fit and mobile can try them.
