You’ll learn something new every day… if you listen to Nature

5 easy summer trails through history and nature

There’s always something new to discover, especially when you move through the woods, meadows and mountains of Trentino. Here nature takes on the role of teacher and accompanies you along pleasant trails, suitable for the entire family, and subtly reveals her secrets.

In the verdant Val di Sole, for example, you’ll learn how to recognise wild herbs, whereas in the Adamello-Brenta Natural Park you’ll learn about the local fauna. In the borderlands between the Val di Non and the Val d'Ultimo, you’ll learn about two peoples, so close yet so different. There are many activities and trails that will lead you on a road of discovery to Trentino’s historical and natural heritage.

The Garden of Wonders of the Val di Sole

Not far from the hamlet of Ossana in the Val di Sole, you’ll find Bosco Derniga, a splendid garden that aims to reproduce and unveil the secrets of the Alpine woodlands with the fragrance of flowers, the scent of herbs and the soft sound of wood. In the summer you can also take part in birdwatching activities, yoga or star-gazing with an astronomer. For younger children there’s a small educational farm with goats and a piglet.
