Stelvio National Park

The many facets of one of Italy’s oldest protected areas

Opened in 1935, the Park is home to the Cevedale, the so-called "roof" of Trentino that borders with Lombardia and South Tyrol

Dense coniferous forests, the crystal-clear waters of rivers and lakes, and dazzlingly white snowfields embellish the breath-taking landscapes of the Stelvio National Park. Whatever the season, the Rabbi and Val di Peio valleys — the areas of the Park within Trentino — offer up unforgettable colours: the silent white of winter, the verdant green of spring, the turquoise of Alpine lakes in summer and the red of the foliage in autumn.

In the Park, which includes parts of Trentino-Alto Adige and Lombardy, you can admire lush natural surroundings that exist in harmony with the historic presence of humans. Peace now reigns over these mountains, once battlegrounds in war, with lodges and glaciers atop the peaks of Monte Cevedale (3,769 m), Trentino’s highest mountain.

The Stelvio National Park, one of Italy’s oldest natural parks, was founded in 1935 to protect the natural beauty of the Ortles-Cevedale mountain Group.

In its vast landscapes, deer, ibex, chamois and roe deer can find unspoilt habitats to roam in, while the majestic golden eagle soars freely in its clear skies. While trekking, you can stop off in the open malghe or mountain cottages, where you can try fresh butter and cheese; visit mills, forges and sawmills; or even take a dip in mineral-rich thermal waters.

In Rabbi, you can climb 700 steps among 23 500-year-old larch trees, or admire the waterfalls of Saènt before heading down to the Rabbi Fonti Visitor Centre.

In Pejo, you ascend to 3,000 metres on Monte Vioz (including by cable car), or see the springs of the river Noce. Or why not take a trip to the Cogolo Visitor Centre, the Pejo Fonti wildlife area, or the dairy where Casolét cheese, a Slow Food speciality, is produced.
