Romina, hotel manager & explorer



Day-long trek starting at 8:30 am from Monroc to reach Sant'Antonio di Mavignola. From here we hike to Val Brenta , passing through the Brenta Bassa plain (1265 m), which opens onto a magnificent panoramic view dominated by Crozzon di Brenta, one of the most striking peaks of the Dolomite massif. The trail continues to the Cascate di Vallesinella waterfalls, which we will flank to the highest point , from here we will reach the Casinei refuge for a tasteful break and to recover energy.

The new version of our morning trek this year moves to Val di Peio. We start at 6:00 AM, heading towards the Stelvio National Park, above the village of Peio. The crisp air urges us on our first steps, and the gentle climb warms us up. Immersed in the morning silence, we arrive at Covel Lake and you'll understand why it's called the "mirror of the sky." A few steps further and we hear the roar of the Rio Vioz waterfall, and then… off with the shoes! We dip our feet in the water, a real tonic.

Breathe in, listen, don't think about anything, look around as the sun caresses the surrounding peaks. After this "awakening," we head to the refuge, where in the wooden stube of the Scoiattolo, we are pampered by the scent 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 for 5:30 AM 🙂 We calmly set off again with Attilio, who tells us the secrets of the mountain, first pointing to the squirrel forest and then Malga Saline, always accompanied by majestic Swiss pines.

We ride our bikes up the gondola alongside MONROC* to Alpe Daolasa. From here our tour begins with a beautiful descent with views of the Dolomites to Malga di Dimaro and then continue to Campo Carlo Magno; we then continue on a dirt road along the Campiglio Caves and then start climbing up to Malga Fevri where we can admire a truly impressive panorama. The climb up to Monte Spinale (Chalet Spinale) and from here on a free descent to Malga Montagnoli and the lake of the same name and again down to Malga Mondifrà where the adrenaline-filled descent on dirt road along Val Meledrio begins and return to Monroc.

Here, 'queen' refers to Presanella with its 3560 meters of altitude, the highest peak of the Adamello Presanella group. 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 there we continue until we reach the village of Fontanino and climb up to Lake Pian Palù.

We set off from MONROC with our minibus: towards Val di Rabbi and precisely above the village of Piazzola. 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. It's safe to say that this day, too, has flown by!
