Herbs, flowers and flavours
Botanists, local producers and chefs will reveal the secrets of a nature that will surprise you!
ATTENTION: The opening of cultural and tourist sites, access to them, to public transport and to the services described in these pages is governed by the containment measures put in place by the government authorities and the Autonomous Province of Trento to deal with the COVID-19 health emergency. The rules may vary over time and provide for the application of different security measures — from closure, to social distancing, to the mandatory use of personal protective equipment such as gloves and masks. We therefore ask you to consult the section Travelling safely on this website and to contact the managers directly for updated information on how to gain access.
Search for the species, find the differences. You just need to follow the fragrance of the “Flowers, herbs and flavors week” held in Val di Fiemme from Sunday June 26th to Sunday July 4th, to learn how to observe the little miracles of nature with a more expert eye.
At 1.000 meters above sea level, flowers such as anemones, Seguier ranunculus, mountain avens, yarrows, gentians, lichens and about other twenty species of spontaneous orchids blossom in Val di Fiemme’s pastures. After mid-June, the little Alpine lakes on the Lagorai mountain chain are framed by rhododendrons that grow above 1.600 meters a.s.l., while saxifrages are nestled among rocks.
A provincial law limits the picking of maximum 5 stalks of non-protected flowers per day and forbids to pick up rare species such as red lily, edelweiss and holly.
The program of the week Flowers, Herbs and Flavors includes free excursions and events with experts, local producers and renowned chefs to discover the nature’s “treasures”. Every day you can learn more about rare flowers, small petals, ancient woods stories and creative recipes using spontaneous herbs. Meet local producers who live in symbiosis with nature, expert botanists, forest rangers and researchers.
Every evening enjoy floral aperitifs, entertainment and public conferences that will reveal the charm of herbs and flowers.
