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

PROGRAM OF OUR TREKKING IN THE DOLOMITES ALPS
The amazing views in the Alps - "Bocca di Tuckett"(Tuckett pass)
- 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
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.
- Descent from Rifugio Brentei on the most famous route of
the mountain group (Sentiero Bogani. We reach Rifugio Casinei which is the lowest point of our trip
(1,820 m) where a delicious cappuccino is almost mandatory. After the crossing of a forest with many waterfalls and
meadows we are heading towards 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 zigzag path we go upwards through a wild valley with many bear caves. Later and at the end of a
relatively steep path suddenly Rifugio Graffer al Groste'
is emerging. There are many tourists and even cyclists
but the civilization after three hard days of walking has also got its advantages: shower, good food, selection
- After a rich breakfast we depart from Rifugio Graffer at 8.00 in the morning on
an easy path which is a skiing slope in the winter time. In about 40 minutes we reach Passo del Groste' :
our last chance for an espresso or cappuccino. We are leaving civilization behind us and our guided Hike is taking us
into in a lonely valley where our path is narrowing because it is the home of just a few animals. At first
our path is leading us between rocks and later on through colorful meadows up to Malga Flavona and on a comfortable
forest road to Lago di Tovel
. If you have dreamt a fairy tale in your childhood in which a small lake, a small inn,
fantastic flowers and blue skies were the protagonists, then this dream has become reality now. Lake Tovel,
the "Red Lake", has had a special famous feature in the world because it used to change its color to red
or blue under certain circumstances and on the basis of special bacteria. Your guide has often seen this phenomenon
in his youth but unfortunately not anymore since 50 years.
- Unfortunately today we are leaving this world of fairy tales and in the morning
we go by taxi to San Lorenzo in Banale further on to Lake Garda or home; but we will certainly never forget in our
whole life the happy days of our Brenta Trek hut to hut
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
of every rock or plant in the mountain group and he would like to pass on to you the his own mountain experience and
passion for nature.
