Viote del Bondone – Bocca di Vaiona
Hiking trail • Trento, Monte Bondone, Valle dei Laghi, Valle dell'Adige
The short trek that leads to Bocca di Vaiona unwinds quickly in the green open space of Viote del Bondone. The Bocca makes an exceptional viewpoint: to the north-west stand out the Brenta Dolomites; to the west, the Carè Alto massif; to the south, the Tre Cime chain; to the east, the Palon peak; looking down, you can see the whole Valle dei Laghi.
The small difference in height is therefore sufficient to enjoy fabulous views. The Brenta Group is displayed in all its extraordinary beauty, especially in the morning when the sun shines on its eastern side.
A quick detour to the right allows to climb Roste del Bondone, the grassy ridge north of Bocca di Vaiona and a little higher. From there the views range even further.
The route is also suitable for families with children.
