The vertical marvels of Aviana Valley

Where? Avio - Madonna della Neve on Mount Baldo

When? Sunday 7 July, Saturday 3 August

Trekking in the wonderful Valle Aviana and an adrenaline railway on the Via Gerardo Sega, accompanied by expert guides.

An experience for the bravest, in the spectacular Aviana Valley with a ‘higher’ and ‘vertical’ viewpoint.

An adventurous trek in the canyon leads to the famous via ferrata Gerardo Sega, are you ready to experience this adrenaline?

Are you not afraid of heights and are you looking for strong emotions? This is the experience for you! We are waiting for you on Sunday 7 July, Saturday 3 August!

Followed by experienced mountain experts (an alpine guide and a mid-mountain guide), you will dive in the wild Aviana Valley, penetrating the ravine carved out by the torrent that emerges at the imposing Preafessa waterfall, a 70-metre waterfall plunging into a verdant gorge. Here you can stop to enjoy the spectacular view and catch your breath, before embarking on the via ferrata Gerardo Sega that will take you almost back to your starting point, offering epic views and a fabulous experience you will hardly forget.

More than a hike, it is an exploration from bottom to top of a valley that hides many wonders: dark gorges, elegant waterfalls, ancient bridges, giants’ marmitte, gorges in torrents and a spectacular via ferrata that is one of the most famous in Trentino.
