For 30 years our mountain guides school has accompanied friends and
customers in the Dolomites on guided hikes or via ferrata routes (the famous Via delle Bocchette
from lodge to lodge or hut to hut. So far we had never used the "Trade Mark Brenta Trek"
until in the year 2009 our marketing experts in Trentino decided that every hike in the Brenta Group should
be named Brenta trek. Our alpine guides school
has many offers for rock climbing, mountaineering, high mountains
crossing and via ferratas in the Brenta Dolomites (see our website www.via-ferrata.co.uk
). With our proposal of the Brenta Trek
, we would like
to offer a 4 day guided hikes from lodge to lodge crossing from the South to the North, the entire Brenta

- The meeting point can be at your hotel at Lake Garda
and then we will
drive on with the minivan of our mountain guide. There is also the possibility to meet directly in San
Lorenzo in Banale
(other possible meeting points to be agreed upon with the participants). From San Lorenzo the guided trip
leads us through a canyon on a comfortable forest road which can also be used by jeeps. After an hour the
valley is getting wider with colorful meadows, alpine environment and many animals. Here is the empire of the
chamois and marmots, eagles and only recently ibex have been spotted again. In about three hours we reach
Rifugio al Cacciatore (hunters hut) where the food is still excellent even if now there are no more hunters.
The guided hikes continues after a snack and in two hours we reach Rifugio Agostini
- Around 8 am in the morning we start from Rifugio Agostini and we hike on the
Sentiero Palmieri which is flat at the beginning. After an hour we encounter the first steep slope of the
tour. Then we move on to the Forcolotta di Noghera (Forcolotta means pass). Here we take a break to enjoy the
panoramic view of the entire mountain group. The panorama extends to the Lake Molveno and later we descend
on a serpentine path which ends up on a huge flat meadow adjacent to the majestic wall of the Cima Tosa. We turn
right towards Rifugio Pedrotti alla Tosa (cappuccino or pastasciutta?) and in a quarter of an hour we reach the
famous Bocca di Brenta
. Here we are in the heart of the Dolomites and on the top of our trip. In the
Middle Ages some witches used to live here and the local shepherds and hunters went to ask the for good luck and we
are doing the same now! From here begins the "most difficult" line of
the treks: descent from the Bocca on a snowfield of which only the first 20 meters are steep. Then the trail is
leading further downwards between rocks and equipped with cable until we reach a flat snowfield. From here we can
admire the famous Campanile basso
and perhaps also the rock climbers on the walls of this fantastic pillar. In an hour
easy path we reach our destination of the 2nd day which is Rifugio Brentei
. If the afternoon is boring
for you, we may reach Rifugio Alimonta, the highest mountain Lodge in the Group.
- From the Rifugio Brentei our path leads us slightly downhill on the most famous
trail of the Brenta Dolomites: the Bogani Path. In an hour of walking you reach the junction that leads to the
left at Rifugio Casinei. Instead we climb to the right a comfortable path towards the Rifugio Tukkett
and suddenly we see the towers of Castelletto
. In about an hour we reach Rifugio Tuckett which is usually
crowded with tourists - but not at this time. We can easily stop for a capuccino and a good piece of cake and then continue
on the path up and down, towards the Passo del Groste '
. At the end, slightly downhill, in about two hours we reach
Rifugio Graffer al Groste '
. Here there will be many tourists and even "mountain bikers"
but civilization, after three hard days of hiking, also has its advantages shower, good food, selection of wines.
- After a rich breakfast we depart from Rifugio Graffer at 8.30 in the morning. On
an easy zigzag path we go downhill to Vallesinella Valley "On the tracks of the bears". Unfortunately we
cannot see any bears since this species is only nocturnal but fresh tracks and deep scratches on the trees are very
impressive. On a path through a wild valley with many bear caves, we reach Malga Vallesinella. We descend along a
canyon where there are the most beautiful waterfalls in the Dolomites. The trail is well equipped with bridges and
stairs and allows spectacular photos. At the end a flat forest road leads to the new Rifugio Vallesinella
we can have lunch and wait for the arrival of the taxi that brings us back to S. Lorenzo in Banale. This last day
consists of a long descent. The hiking time depends a lot on the resistance of the knees and the stops (4/5 hours).
In any case there will be the certainty of memories that will accompany us forever.
Your guide has grown up in the Dolomites He is an intl. licensed mountain guide, English, German speaking
Delio' s home is in the walls and routes of the Dolomites. He knows many climbing walls in the world but
he is still proceeding on our trip with the same passion and reverence like he did as a child with his
father who had introduced him into the world of forests, rock towers and animals. Delio can explain to you the history
