Whoever chooses Andalo and the Paganella Plateau, chooses a strategic starting point to experience every day the real trekking of the Dolomites and we know that no summer is complete without at least one trip to a refuge in the Brenta Dolomites.
The centrality of the area with respect to the Brenta Group allows you to try many excursions and trekking routes.
Brenta Dolomites: incomparable landscapes
The itineraries, which can start directly from the villages of Andalo, Molveno or from nearby San Lorenzo in Banale, penetrate the Brenta group and provide access to the malghe and refuges for the most famous and fascinating "vie ferrate".
There is also a "refuge taxi" service to reach some refuges or strategic points from where you can start your Dolomite treks.
Acknowledged as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2009, the Brenta Dolomites are one of the nine Dolomite groups officially recognised and protected by the Dolomiti-Unesco foundation.
Cradle of modern mountaineering, the Brenta Dolomites, entirely protected by the Adamello-Brenta Nature Park, are like a rocky road 42 km long and 12 km wide: a succession of peaks, bastions, gullies, rocky plateaus, dihedrals and peaks of all shapes and sizes.
There are hundreds of itineraries for walking and trekking, starting from Andalo, Molveno and the Pradel Plateau, which allow you to immerse yourself in the absolute beauty of this Dolomite group along paths of varying length and difficulty.
mountaineering routes of unparalleled scenic interest
In the Brenta Dolomites there are many equipped routes or 'ferratas': paths of varying degrees of difficulty and equipped in the most inaccessible or exposed points with metal cables, steps and other fixtures (always metal), to allow the hiker to ascend in safety. These itineraries, as well as allowing you to reach peaks and places that were once inaccessible, often propose alpine routes of unparalleled scenic interest.
A multi-day trek in the Dolomites through the refuges of the Brenta: Pedrotti Refuge, Agostini Refuge, Tuckett Refuge, Cacciatori Refuge, Brentei Refuge, Alimonta Refuge, XII Apostoli Refuge. We are talking about "real refuges", at high altitudes on the Brenta, hours' walk from the nearest road, where there is the bare minimum of services and supply is made difficult by the altitude and isolation, those that have been invented to be connected by the vie ferrate.
Arriving at the refuge after a good walk is one of those things that makes you really appreciate the ascent you have just made; if you then add a great lunch, a unique view and the warmth of the Brenta Dolomites, well we can say that the day can only be perfect
