NATURE AT ITS BEST!
If you love nature, you have come to the right place. In Trentino, you’ll find enchanting woods, majestic mountains (Dolomites), crystal-clear lakes, rolling hills and romantic vineyards.
The entire region, located in Northern Italy, is a true paradise for outdoor activities in every season. Lake Garda, in particular, has a unique climate: mild days during winter, warm but never unbearably hot days during the long summer. It’s really a magical place, nestled between mountains and olive groves. And its crystal-clear waters and reliable winds will give both beginners and sports pros alike an incomparable emotional experience.
We are located in Vallagarina, a beautiful valley in the Southern part of Trentino. It is close to Lake Garda and some of the most beautiful peaks (“cime“) of the region, which form a natural arena around the historical town of Rovereto.
#7Cime in the Vallagarina Destination
Above the “Busa” (literally, “hole”), the flat lands between Riva del Garda, Arco and Torbole, lies the imposing presence of #MonteStivo (2054m), from whose summit you can also enjoy a fabulous view over the Adige Valley. On its wooded slopes, one of the most enchanting places in Trentino can be found: #LakeCei. Fir trees and centenary beech trees open up and frame a body of water with incredible colors, different in every season. And among water lilies, rare blue irises and cane thickets nest wild ducks with feathers just as beautifully resplendent with colour. A bit higher up, wide meadows in spring are covered in peonies, wild tulips, anemones, Alpine buttercups, gentians and primroses. Even higher, cows and horses graze lazily on lake-view mountain pastures.
Next to Mount Stivo there’s #MountBaldo (2218m): one of its slopes overlooks Lake Garda, while the other faces the vineyards of the Adige Valley. In winter, its white-capped peaks will ensure fun for those who love snow. And the other seasons are not to be outdone: flowering meadows in spring, extraordinary view-points over Lake Garda in summer and colourful beech-woods in autumn. Already known by 1500 as Hortus Italiae, the Garden of Italy, the Baldo Park is characterized by rich biodiversity. For centuries it has been a popular destination for naturalists, chemists, pharmacists, experts in botany and geology.
The area of #MountFinonchio, Folgaria and Passo Coe is another fascinating destination, particularly in winter, when the blanket of snow make the landscape almost surreal. Then there’s Millegrobbe, a magic and pristine place known as the “Canada of the Italian Alps”.
Other peaks of this wonderful natural arena are #MountZugna, a stone’s throw from Rovereto, #MountPasubio with its historical tracks and #MountLessini, right in between on Trentino and Veneto.
Food lovers will find something to satisfy their expectations. Among the most delicious meat-based meals there are canederli (bread-balls filled with meat and served with different sauces or in broth), osèi scampadi (turkey rolls filled with cheese), carne salada (raw seasoned beef), tonco del pontesel (different kinds of meat cooked together), smacafàm (a sort of focaccia bread, made with flour, egg, milk and meat), game (capriolo in umido, deer ragù) and sguazet (an offal stew made from heart, liver and lungs). If you feel like soup, there is orzotto (barley soup with meat and vegetables), tripe soup and bro brusà (a creamy and cheesy meat broth, with pasta). Tasting freshwater fish, like trout, is also a must.
Vegetarians won’t be disappointed: strangolapreti and spätzle (a sort of gnocchi), tortel de patate (roasted potatoes), peverà and panada (pepper and bread-based soups), crauti (sauerkraut), fasoi embragati (beans cooked with onions and tomatoes), mushrooms (porcini, finferli, finferle…), risotti (the Teroldego one is the most famous) and the inevitable polenta – also in the variations of Storo (typical corn flour), of potatoes, carbonera (with cheese and mushrooms) and mosa (with milk).
If that’s not enough, there are luganega, mortandela, speck and ciuiga as cold-cuts, or tosela, vezzena, grana trentino, casolet, puzzone di Moena and sprezza as cheeses. To end with something sweet, you can try one of the typical cakes like strudel, zelten, torta di fregoloti and fugaza, or pastries like frittelle di mele (apple pancakes), strauben and grostoi (fried pastries).
A glass of wine is mandatory: Gewurztraminer, Müller Thurgau, Nosiola, Vino Santo or Sylavaner if you like whites, Lagrein, Schiava or Marzemino if you prefer reds, or spumante if you loves bubbles (both white and rosè).
