The Valli Giudicarie and the Valle del Chiese
Ice-climbing, ski-mountaineering e activities for the whole family
Straddling one of the largest natural parks in Trentino, with its lakes and frozen waterfalls, this isn’t simply another skiing destination but also the perfect spot for a getaway, the place to go to find peace of mind and body.
The valleys that make up the Giudicarie system, along the edges of the Adamello Brenta Natural Park, are the perfect place to enjoy a relaxing winter and even to spend some time savouring the traditional cuisine.
For downhill skiing the place to go is Bolbeno, near Tione di Trento, with its impressive snowmaking facilities composed of 14 cannons, it also boasts slopes and ski lifts that make it ideal for skiing courses and training runs.
For children there’s the Ski Camp and, even more importantly, Bolbenolandia, a winter play ground purposely built with younger users in mind.
If you enjoy cross country skiing, there’s the 5km Raggio di Luna (Moon Ray) run in Bondo, in the Valle del Chiese, open both day and night with an artificially illuminated 2km circuit where you can keep skiing after dark.
The variety of slopes and numerous smaller valleys also offers a range of challenges for ski-mountaineers and snowshoeing enthusiasts.
The Valle di Daone, characterised by its abundant water and with two reservoirs, is one of the most renowned areas in Trentino for icefalls and frozen waterfalls that in mid-winter can become truly impressive natural masterpieces. The mid- to upper valley presents over 130 areas where quality icefalls consistently form and has become one of the main destinations for ice-climbing aficionados, not to mention international competitions.
