A low-altitude itinerary that isn’t too difficult apart from the overall length, but this can easily be broken up into shorter legs. A very pleasant outing for the whole family. Lengthy but without any great elevation gain, this itinerary may be divided into multiple legs interspersed with breaks at the various mountain shelters along the route. The Vallesinella falls are nestled in an enchanting landscape made of streams and suspension bridges, as well as the welcoming lodges along the route, which make great spots for a visit and restorative break.

Author’s recommendation

Take note of the timetables of summer transport in Vallesinella before you start. Break up the itinerary with a lunch break at one of the alpine lodges.
