A panoramic hike with little elevation gain, from Monte Spinale to Rifugio Graffer passing by Spinale Lake. One-of-a-kind view of the Brenta Dolomites and the Adamello-Presanella glaciers.

The itinerary from Monte Spinale to Rifugio Graffer is suited even to less experienced hikers. It is not particularly difficult due to its limited elevation gain of just around 300 meters (1,000 ft), so the joys of nature and of alpine pastures are just a quick lift ride away.

Throughout the hike, you can enjoy views of both the Brenta Dolomites and the glaciers of the Adamello-Presanella range, as well as the lovely Spinale Lake. The final destination of this itinerary is the charming Rifugio Giorgio Graffer, named after one of Italy’s most famous mountaineers.
