The route offers a continuous variety of scenarios and rewarding views of the jagged pinnacles of the Brenta.

On the Clamer Pass you can take a last look at the spectacular view of the central Brenta massif you have just crossed with its large boulders and the karst depressions full of suspended glaciers and snow fields. From now on the itinerary presents green valleys with a rich flora, fauna, meadows and stables. The contrast between the gray rocks and the green habitat of the bear is striking.
