The new version of our wake-up trekking this year moves to Val di Peio. We depart at 6:00 AM, heading towards the Stelvio National Park, above the village of Peio paese. The crisp air spurs us on the first steps, and the gentle ascent warms us up. We traverse the Monti trail amidst the scent of larches and our beloved Swiss stone pines. Inhale, listen, think of nothing, look around as the sun caresses the peaks all around. How beautiful, we've arrived at the refuge, in the wooden stube of the Squirrel, pampered by the aroma of coffee, the taste of yogurt with honey and berries, and the softness of grandma's cake... just for this moment, you shouldn't have any doubts about setting the alarm at 5:30 in the morning 🙂 We continue calmly with Attilio, who tells us the secrets of the mountain, first aiming for the Cross of the Hunters and then descending to the goat pasture. Immersed in the notes of flowing water, we reach the Covel lake, and you'll understand why they call it the "mirror of the sky." A few steps and we hear the roar of the Vioz river waterfall, which accompanies us to close our spectacular loop. An experience not to be missed.

This one-day trek, guided by Attilio at the foot of the Presanella Glacier, takes us to the Denza refuge (2298 m above sea level). One of the most suggestive treks to do in Val di Sole with breathtaking views of the surrounding peaks that will make the ascent easier. It's impossible not to reach Lake Denza (10 minutes above the refuge), an emerald nestled among tonalite rocks, alpine flora, and where curious marmots will observe us. After all this effort, we'll enjoy a delicious break at the refuge where we'll meet Mirco, the craziest refuge manager in the Alpine region. The breeze rising from the valley calls us back to the descent, but before reaching the bottom, we'll have the opportunity to visit Fort Pozzi Alti, a restored Austro-Hungarian fort that has become an open-air museum dating back to World War I.

From the parking lot we set out in the direction of Malga Caldesa and after about 40 minutes we will glimpse the beginning of the "Fruscìo" sound trail. Carillons hanging from tall larch trees, hollow logs resonating with your hands, a piano stuck on the top of a larch tree. A grass square where you lie on wooden seats. Surrender to the sounds, the voice of the wind in the trees, the song of the forest. You will feel the peace!
Recharged by the delightful Monroc picnic enjoyed in the shade of a centuries-old tree, we continue on our journey, listening to Attilio who entertains us with tales of the mountain pastures and the surrounding territory. The energy of the forest guides us back towards the path of the alpine dairies, and at Malga Caldesa, we stop for a delightful slice of cake or a yogurt made by them, with strawberries or forest berries.
