High mountain

Trekking dell'Ortles Cevedale tra Trentino e Alto Adige

From € 790

Level Intermediate

Duration 6 days

Zone Ortles Cevedale

A route which will show us the untouched nature of Parco dello Stelvio, rich in lakes and glaciers, among the valleys and alpine landscapes of Trentino and Alto Adige.

The environment always changes and offers us different views: pastures in the valley floor, red rocks around the huts, waterfalls, snow and glaciers… until we will reach the wide and solitary environment of Careser’s glacier, a breath-taking landscape which connects Ortles Cevedale’s peaks to Adamello’s and Brenta Dolomites’.

6 days of trekking from one hut to another, in Parco Nazionale dello Stelvio; an itinerary to discover Val di Rabbi, Val di Pejo, Val Martello, in comfortable and cozy alpine huts.

Technical description

  • DAY ONE: 8.30 meet up with the Mountain Guide to check the equipment. Then, we move by public transport to Val di Rabbi. The route starts on forest roads, at first, and then it follows a path, crossing woods of larches and fir trees. We walk by some huts, getting out of the woods and entering wide mountain meadows, to the base of Cima Quaira. Dinner and night stay at the hut (2435m).

  • DAY TWO: CIMA COLLECCHIO – we climb up a clear path, in an open space, overcoming different rocky slopes until Cima del Collecchio (2957m), located on the line between Val Montechiesa and Val Saent. After a scenic section on an easy ridge, the trail runs downhill along the side of the mountain, to reach Val Saent. Dinner and night stay at the hut (2436m).

  • DAY THREE: CIMA ROSSA DI MARTELLO – gradually we climb up to Passo di Saent (2965m) which divides Val di Rabbi from Val Martello, in an empty and rocky environment. From the Passo, descending through wide glaciers, we arrive in Punta Rossa di Martello (3033m), and from here until the hut we’re walking in Alto Adige. The location offers us wide overviews of mountain peaks of the area: Cevedale, Gran Zebrù, Ortles. Dinner and night stay at the hut (2610m).

  • DAY FOUR: VEDRETTA DELLA FORCOLA – we climb up, walking on an easy path in the direction of Forcola’s Glacier. We keep on walking easily on the glacier, noticing the evident signs of the retreat of the glacier, especially on the final ridge (extremely steep) which leads us to Passo della Forcola (3032m). The descent on the opposite side of the mountain will take us back in Trentino. Dinner and night stay at the hut (2607m).

  • DAY FIVE: VEDRETTA DEL CARESER – We start walking over an alpine pasture nourished by lakes, until we reach Diga del Careser (2603 m). We climb up the empty environment which surrounds us, to reach the foothills of the Careser glacier, which we cross to touch the eastern side (3121m). Then, we descend again towards Val Saent. Dinner and night spent in the hut (2436 m).

  • DAY SIX: SAENT WATERFALLS – a pleasant and scenic descent, surrounded by marmots and rhododendron flowers. Once crossed the wide stretch of Pra di Saent, the path leads us among bridges and water games of the Saent waterfalls, the most stunning of Val di Sole. Then, we go back by bus to the parking lot.
