To discover the excitement of literally walking at the feet of the Brenta Dolomites, all you need to do is reach Rifugio Selvata.

Author’s recommendation

The mountain hut has maintained, over the years, its original characteristics as a small Alpine shelter. It is particularly appreciated for its traditional local cuisine, and its large selection of local wines.

The easiest starting point is in Pradel locality (1359 m), which you can reach from Molveno with the ski lift facilities. Without using the facilities, it is possible to start from Ciclamino locality (926 m) - Molveno. This option extends the route significantly, both in distance (about 3.5 Km more), and in cumulative elevation gain (about 400 m more).

Turn-by-turn directions

Starting from Pradel locality (1367 m), you follow trail number 340. The first part of the trail develops at the feet of the impressive south face of the Croz dell’Altissimo, in a truly breathtaking context. In the more exposed sections, the route has been obtained by digging the path out of the rock. This peculiarity gives the hiker exceptional views of Valle delle Seghe below, and of the pinnacles of the Brenta Dolomites.

Along this panoramic path, you reach Rifugio Croz dell’Altissimo (1430 m).

From here, you continue to follow trail 340 in the direction of Rifugio Selvata. After passing an ample and articulated ford, the path begins the crossing that passes beneath the pinnacles of the “Castello dei Massodi”, and then heads into the vegetation of the Conca della Selvata, where the mountain hut is located (1657 m) - the destination of the walk. 

You return along the same route.

Getting there

You can reach Molveno with road SS421 coming from either Andalo-Fai della Paganella or from the Giudicarie (San Lorenzo in Banale).

Parking

Molveno, the “Pradel” ski lift. Ample parking.

Arrival by train, car, foot or bike
