Lessinia Trentina, land of alpine meadows
Bike along prairies, beechwoods and Alpine shepherd’s huts with stone roofs
Lessinia Trentina, a plateau unknown to mass tourism. From Sega di Ala, go on an excursion on foot, mountain bike or snowshoes on ancient shepherd routes.
Climb up steep hairpin turns that ascend from the valley floor up to Sega di Ala. As you go up you will see the most beautiful panoramas stretching from the Valle dell’Adige to the Dolomites. You are at the border between the province of Trento and that of Verona, in an ancient countryside, suspended between land and sky, where the silence is broken only by the sound of the wind.
The characteristic Alpine shepherd’s huts with stone roofs, used for summer pasture to this day, tell the story of this hidden plateau, which has always been geared to sheep-farming. Discover it during the summer with “andar per malghe” and taste freshly drawn milk, cheeses, yoghurt and other Alpine summer pasture products .
If you like mountain biking, try the extensive network of paths and dirt roads with relatively easy elevation gain.
In winter go for a walk on these paths with snowshoes or experiences the thrill of snow walking, nordic walking on the snow. Passo Fittanze has a piste for nordic skiing and Lessiland, the playground in the snow for your children.
If you want an adventure in direct contact with nature, the Lessina plateau is the place for you.
