Brenta Dolomites

The Dolomites of the Rhaetian Alps

The only Dolomites UNESCO site located West of Valle dell'Adige, and as such outside the traditional Dolomites region, the Brenta Group has exceptional natural value, also owing to the fact that is located far from largely populated centres or major roads.

These mountains are of primary importance for the history of mountaineering, with some mountains that have become famous all over the world: Campanil Basso, Crozzon di Brenta, Cima Tosa and Cima Brenta.

Adamello Brenta Nature Park

The importance of these mountains from a naturalistic viewpoint is proven by the fact that the Brenta Group is part of the Adamello Brenta Nature Park, and is also home to a Geopark (with headquarters in the town of Carisolo). In addition, the southern part of the Brenta Group is also part of the Alpi Ledrensi e Judicaria biosphere.

Via delle Bocchette

The Brenta Group is also very important for mountaineering, for example because of the possibility to travel beautiful vie ferrate, like the "Via delle Bocchette", an equipped trail for experts that connects several mountain huts, exploiting the particular conformation of the mountains.
