At the very heart of the Brenta Dolomites, surrounded by impressive lunar-like rock formations, are located some of the coziest mountain huts you could ever imagine. Our plan is to stay overnight in one them and hike around, exploring this Unesco World Heritage area during the days. A great opportunity to discover a world made of dolostone but also some of the most spectacular waterfalls in the entire region.
We start early from the city of Milan, heading towards the world-class skiing resort of Madonna di Campiglio (4 hours). From here we start hiking, immersed in the idyllic spruce and larch forest. Following the water jumps of the picturesque Vallesinella waterfalls we reach a first mountain hut. Here we stop for a delicious traditional meal. The hike isn’t over and now is actually time to get ready for the real spectacle! The trail takes us smoothly above the tree line and closer to the rock towers that are the backdrop to the Ai Brentei Hut. Newly restored this mountain hut offers great views and a super cozy atmosphere. The perfect place where to spend the night, not giving up the basic comforts.
If you’re in for an early wake up call and you want a bit more of a challenge, we can hike even higher to the Alimonta Hut, hidden among the upper gullies of the Brenta Dolomites. If not and anyways on the way down from here, our hike continues traversing to the Tuckett Hut, located at the foot of some of the Dolomites’ most iconic rock formations. Such an amazing background scenery for our lunch break! In the afternoon we continue our descent to the car and from there back to Milan.
