A classic itinerary starting high in the mountains to see some of the Brenta Dolomites’ most famous alpine shelters. The incredible panorama is ample reward for the exertion of the hike.

An amazing, high-altitude hike in the company of the vertical faces of the central section of the Brenta Dolomites, along rolling false flats with amazing views of the Rendena Valley and the Adamello-Presanella mountain range. At the starting point, you can admire the magnificent Pietra Grande, which can be seen from the arrival station of the gondola lift, as well as Cima Grostè as soon as you get out of the gondola.

Author’s recommendation

From Rifugio Tuckett, you can choose from four different via ferratas (proper equipment required).The itinerary is perfect for taking some great rock-themed photos.
