    MALGA ZUGNA 0 stars

    There are at least three good reasons to walk up to the Rifugio Malga Zugna: to surround yourself with nature and enjoy sweeping vistas, to reconstruct the events of the Great War on this historic mountain, and to gaze at the stars from the observatory built here at 1,617 metres above sea level by Rovereto Museum. In addition, there is a “land art” trail near the refuge. The building dates back to the early twentieth century and has been completely renovated by Rovereto District Council. Also recently restored are the vestiges of the war located along the access road and the path that continues over Monte Zugna to Passo Buole.OpenEvery day from 20 June to 20 SeptemberOn weekends all year roundBefore leaving for your hike, always contact the manager to verify the actual opening of the mountain hutWalksThe walk to Passo Buole (1 hour 40 minutes, difficulty E) is of great historical interest for the vestiges of the Great War, which you’ll see along the way after only half an hour’s walk over Monte Zugna. If you make your way up to the refuge along the former military road from Alberedo you’ll come across the so-called “large trench”, a (restored) outpost of the Italian army.

  • Rifugio Altissimo 4

    Rifugio Altissimo “Damiano Chiesa” 0 stars

    Arriving at the Rifugio Altissimo Damiano Chiesa you’d think you were in Norway, with Lake Garda 2000 m below winding between the mountains like a northern fjord, blue, narrow and deep. The other thing that will bowl you over is the welcome from warden and mountain guide Danny Zampiccoli, his pat on the back a demonstration of his philosophy: you arrive at the refuge a customer but leave as a friend, and when it comes to eating it’s not the food that counts, it’s the love that goes into cooking it. These are the secrets of this refuge on the Monte Baldo massif, which in summer (and very often in winter, too) is one of the most well-loved and popular in southern Trentino. OpenEvery day from early May to late OctoberEvery weekend from November to MayBefore leaving for your hike, always contact the manager to verify the actual opening of the mountain hutWalksA few metres below the summit of Monte Altissimo di Nago, the refuge is a great attraction. Walkers making their way up will encounter vestiges of the Great War and, if they come up from San Giacomo near Malga Campo, interesting examples of rural architecture built for forestry and pasturing work. Footpath 651 leads to the Rifugio Telegrafo, a five-hour walk across the peaks above Lake Garda.In winter, ski mountaineers (and snowshoers) from the Malcesine ski area also come up to Rifugio Altissimo.

  • Rifugio Monte Baldo

    Rifugio Monte Baldo 0 stars

    On the flower-covered slopes of Monte Baldo between Monte Telegrafo and Monte Altissimo, is the Rifugio Monte Baldo, built in 1924 near the shrine of Madonna delle Nevi (Our Lady of the Snows), a place of pilgrimage built in the sixteenth century. A small playground outside the refuge will keep the children happy while their parents can enjoy the local Trentino cuisine and the peaceful environment of the Val Domenegal, where animals graze on the gentle slopes on the border between Trentino and the Veneto.OpenFrom late Mach to mid-NovemberBefore leaving for your hike, always contact the manager to verify the actual opening of the mountain hutWalksFrom the refuge it’s a 4 ½ hour walk to the Rifugio Monte Telegrafo, overlooking Lake Garda. A circular route of five hours (starting and finishing at the refuge) give you the opportunity to have a go at the (moderately difficult) Gerardo Sega via ferrata on the rock face of Monte Coalaz, standing out, unexpected, amid the vegetation.
