This itinerary of intermediate difficulty starts from Rifugio Gorck, which may be reached by car. To get to the lodge, cross Val di San Valentino, a valley that gets its name from the small church of San Valentino, which features frescoes by Simone Baschenis. The church, which you will pass on your way up the valley by car, sits in a panoramic spot with an ample view out over Busa di Tione, the lower Rendena valley, the Brenta group, and the spires of Carè Alto to the west and is well worth a visit. The itinerary runs through a landscape of rare beauty at the edge of the treeline and is recommended for anyone who loves uncontaminated nature.

Author’s recommendation

Ideal itinerary for those looking to get away from crowds of tourists and who can appreciate the slow rhythms of nature.
