An excursion of intermediate difficulty but accessible to all and that runs through a beautiful forest along a trail that winds its way gradually up the mountain.

The destination is a natural amphitheater with an alpine lake of rare beauty, which is covered in snow and ice in winter. Overlooking the lake is a typical alpine lodge in this enchanting setting in which to enjoy local alpine delicacies as you gaze out over this tranquil scene.

It is also an exceptional spot from which to admire the Brenta Dolomites, particularly at dusk, when the setting sun colors the rocky spires pink.

Author’s recommendation

Be sure to bring a camera.

The itinerary is exposed to the sun during the morning hours.

You won’t want to miss the thrill of an evening outing followed by dinner in the lodge.

Safety information

Experience walking along irregular mountain trails is recommended. In the event of fresh snow, snowshoes are also recommended. Be careful of ice when temperatures are particularly low. As you might imagine, the accessibility of these mountain trails depends entirely on the conditions found at any given time, such as the weather and other natural and environmental conditions. Therefore, before you set out, you should check the status of the trail by contacting alpine guides, lodge operators, or the local tourist office or park information office.
