DOLOMITES ALPS ITALY Brenta Dolomites Trentino - It is amazing to think that these high peaks and walls only 300 million years ago have been the bottom of the Sea. The subsequent deposit layers of animal bones, sand and shells has created these multicolored rocks within millions of years. The Brenta mountains are not only big walls but also green forests, valleys and meadows where cows are grazing, torrents and high waterfalls. This is a wild environment where bears and the local population can coexist safely. The presence of many mountain lodges and huts makes the area very popular for walking from lodge to lodge or from hut to hut on the trips of the famous via ferrata trip Bocchette del Brenta.

go to Brenta Dolomites

ADAMELLO TREKKING Adamello glacier - The Adamello National Park is the largest glacier in Trentino and larger than the one of Mont Blanc. Unlike the Brenta-Dolomites which are of sedimentary origin, the mountains in the Adamello Group have a volcanic background. The glaciers extend over large areas and the rock is composed of smooth, magnificent white granite plaques. The Italian and Austrian soldiers fought for three long winters on these rugged mountains. Sometimes the eternal ice releases soldiers bodies and their weapons. During our trekkings from hut to hut or from lodge to lodge we almost always find unexploded bombs and many remnants of the WWI. It is a prerequisite have a good physical condition as well as mountaineering experience, if you want to conquer these wild mountains. The duration of our routes from hut to hut or from lodge to lodge depends on weather conditions: fog, snow and crevasses may slow the march but the worst thing is the lack of preparation of the participants in our trips.
