  • Monte Bondone, the mountain of Trento:

Monte Bondone is a small group with 4 different and distinct summits: monte Cornetto (2180m), Doss d'Abramo (2140m) ,Cima Verde (2102m), and Cima Palon (2090m.). They are all higher than 2000m, easy to get to and with unforgettable panoramas on Adige Valley, Paganella, Brenta Group, Adamello glaciers and Garda Lake.

Sardagna and the surroundings: 4h, from the city centre you can take the cableway (city bus ticket includes also the cableway) up to Sardagna. From here, a nice, even though not banal walk reaches the Bondone mountain. Don't miss the view over Trento and the ancient church of Santi Filippo e Giacomo.


Monte Bondone: From Viote (you can reach the starting point with a bus,  starts the easy walk-up to the summit: cross the road and start walking along a dirt road, pass near an astronomic observatory and after some hundreds meters you can see tracks ascending directly toward the Cornetto, leave the road to the right and start walking a path in a wood. After the first steep part the path, out of the wood, gets a wide ridge-pointing straight to the Cornetto (on your left ascending you have a valley dividing you from the high rocky walls of the central summit: Dos d'Abramo). Follow the path that will lead you to the right low border of the Cornetto, once there follow at your best to the summit. Is not a trivial path, especially next to the summit where there is a steep ridge. Don't miss the trenches and fortifications dating back to the Great War at the base of the Cornetto.

  • Dolomites, World Natural Heritage:
"The Dolomites are completely unique - they cannot be compared in the any other mountain in the world. Their beauty derives from the contrast between the green of the meadows and the vertical rock faces and the composition of the rock itself, which changes colour throughout the day". Those are the words of Messner, considered one of the greatest mountaineers, who has been climbing in the Dolomites for six decades.

Brenta: there are plenty of hiking path in this area. You can catch a bus to either Pinzolo or Madonna di Campiglio (2h http://www.ttesercizio.it/Orari/Extraurbano/Linea.aspx?BacinoID=4&DirettriceID=71 ), both are resorts with lift that will help you in easily reaching the summit of the mountains. If you prefer to hike, from the bus stop in a pair of hours you can reach the Tuckett hut or the Brentei and admire the beauty of the dolomites. For the bravest it is possible to organize a two days tour that cross the Brenta massif by stopping in the refuges for the night.

Natural Park Adamello-Brenta: close to Pinzolo, it is possible to spend a day walking in the fresh air of the Natural Park Adamello Brenta.
