Adamello Brenta Nature Park
Madonna di Campiglio, Pinzolo and Val Rendena are surrounded by the Adamello Brenta Nature Park, the widest protected area of Trentino (620,5 km2), which includes two different geological ad geo-morphological landscapes: the Adamello-Presanella mountains westward (with glaciers, rivers, waterfalls and lakes) and the Brenta Dolomites eastward (with peaks and great rock towers).
Between these two worlds there are several side valleys – Vallesinella, Val Genova, Val Nambrone are the most famous – each one with its peculiar landscape.

They are the only group of the Dolomites westwards Adige river, and they have been the destination of mountaineers and hikers from all over the world from more than one century: they offer an extraordinary variety of climbing and equipped paths, many refuges and bivouac. The group extends for about 40 kilometers from north to south and for about 12 kilometers from east to west. Its natural 4 boundaries are the “Valle di Sole” northwards, the “Valle di Non” , the Molveno lake and the Paganella group eastwards, the “Valli Giudicarie” southwards and the “Val Rendena” westwards. The whole Brenta group is included in the Adamello Brenta Nature Park area.
The Brenta Dolomites have unique rock peaks, that from dawn to dusk paint themselves pink, and majestic natural sceneries: among the most famous tops there are Crozzon di Brenta, Cima Tosa, Cima Brenta, Campanil Basso and Castelletti di Vallesinella.
Mountain huts in the Brenta Dolomites and Adamello-Presanella group
To make you fully appreciate the mountains and experience the unbeatable view of sunset or dawn among silent peaks, we suggest you sleep at least once in a mountain hut in the Brenta Dolomites and Adamello-Presanella group, near Madonna di Campiglio and Pinzolo Val Rendena.
Friendly and reassuring, the mountain huts welcome walkers and reward their efforts with a comfortable and cosy atmosphere, complete with the staff’s friendly smile so typical of the people who live, enjoy and know mountains like the back of their hand.
It is one of the most suggestive alpine landscape in the Adamello Brenta Nature Park, a big amphitheater of the Dolomites that encloses the Val Brenta, once the main access to the Brenta Dolomites. The landscape of the low and middle valley, even though without the past beautiful beeches than replaced with coniferous woods, has still the features of the pastoral life of that time in the Brenta Bassa and Brenta Alta alpine huts, from which the majestic Crozzon di Brenta can be admired.
The water gushes out from the rocks and breaks in a variety of rivers and waterfalls: they are Vallesinella waterfalls. They are crossed by Vallesinella river, divided in high and low waterfalls and are about one kilometer long totally.
