Author’s recommendation

The route towards the beautiful Ritorto lake is suitable for kids from 10-12 years old. We suggest you a break at Malga Ritorto and we recommended  to bring drinks with you: there are not places of refreshment for long stretches of the route. People are required to bring their own drinks: there are not refreshment points for long stretches of the itinerary. Considering the lenght of the route, we suggest to leave early in the morning.
