From Cembra to Santo Lake in winter
Winter hiking • Altopiano di Pine' and Valle di Cembra
The path from the village of Cembra to Lago Santo follows part of the ancient Via Claudia Augusta which connected Trento with Tyrol.
Distance 13.7 km
The famous German engraver and painter Albrecht Dürer followed this route in 1494 as did Napoleonic troops some three centuries later on their way to the Castle of Segonzano.
The route develops in the woods, interspersed with clearings where the "huts" of the locals, with the porphyry roof slabs according to the tradition or more modern ones, have been built, and with meadows protected by the typical dry stone walls. Halfway along the ring route appears the Santo lake, of immaculate beauty.
Each place has its own history and Santo Lake hides a bit of sacred magic ... discover its history in the legends on https://www.visitpinecembra.it/psc/storie-e-leggende-locali

Experience walking along irregular mountain trails is recommended. It may happen that the path is not clear from snow. In the event of fresh snow, microspikes are recommended. Be careful of ice when temperatures are particularly low.
Please note that the practicability of the itineraries in a mountain environment is strictly linked to the contingent conditions and is therefore influenced by natural phenomena, environmental changes and weather conditions. For this reason, the information contained in this page may have changed. Before leaving for a tour, make sure the path you will approach is still accessible by contacting the owner of the mountain hut, the alpine guides or the visitor centres of the nature parks, the info offices of the local tourist board.
