Author’s recommendation

Treat yourself to a slow afternoon, with slow steps, deep breaths, reading the information signs and sitting on one of the many benches along the way.

Destination

Baselga di Piné

Turn-by-turn directions

From the town hall of Baselga, follow the main road in the direction of Trento for about a hundred metres, then take the first tarmac road on your left. After a few dozens of metres, turn right into a small road that makes a circle around the Dosso di Vigo. Follow it until it joins a tarmac road which takes you to the village of Vigo. Before you go down to the village square, we recommend you make a detour along the mule path on your left to the church of San Giuseppe and the panoramic hill on which it stands. Carry on across Vigo along gently undulating tarmac roads until a place called 'Ferrari'. From there keep going straight ahead until the tarmac road becomes a dirt road. This is where the circular walk around the Laghestel biotope begins. Although a map invites you to walk anticlockwise round Laghestel, feel free to go clockwise if you prefer. Laghestel is one of the 68 biotopes of major interest to be found in Trentino. In ancient times, the Laghestel basin was occupied by a 20-metre-deep lake. As the result of a natural process, the lake has slowly turned into a peat bog. From 1600 onwards, various drainage attempts were made. These included the digging of drainage channels which increased the speed at which the lake surface had been naturally shrinking. Nowadays, the lake occupies the area where the basin is at its deepest. It covers an area of 6,000 m², is 90 metres across and has a maximum depth of 2.5 metres.
