Mountain paradise

The unique, natural and pristine landscapes of the Adamello-Brenta Nature Park

Extraordinary botanical and fauna importance

This protected area covers a mountainous territory of 620.50 sq km and goes from an altitude of 477m to 3558m. It's a typical central-southern alpine environment with coniferous forests covering the mountain slopes up to 1800m. At this altitude the conifers give way to the alpine meadows which in turn give way to the rocky vegetation above 2.500m. Forests of firs, beech, and larch, lush green meadows dotted with colourful flowers, pasture lands, streams, lakes, moors and unreachable heights characterize the Adamello-Brenta Naturpark and make it unique. Both the mountain massifs, the Brenta Dolomites and the Adamello-Presanella, were shaped by water and ice about 20 million years ago. The park, thanks to its 61 geological sites has been officially recognized as a Geopark.

A great variety of wild animals live in this territory: the brown bear, (adopted as the Park's logo), which was reintroduced into the territory after teetering on the brink of extinction, the fox, the badger, the marmot, the marten, the stoat and the weasel. Without forgetting the chamois, an expert climber, the ibex, the stag, the deer and the mouflon. Wild fowls, birds of prey, reptiles and fish also inhabit this territory.

The Trentino Region hosts 4 of the 9 mountain Dolomites groups. One of these groups: the Brenta Dolomites in the Adamello-Brenta Nature Park, is exclusive to the Trentino Region. In 2008 the Adamello Brenta Geopark became part of the European and World Geoparks Network of UNESCO. The equipped trails, hiking paths and high altitude refuges make this territory a coveted destination for mountain and nature lovers. A history of mountaineering and enthusiasm for this unique territory that originates around the middle of the 19th century and has remained unchanged until this day.

The highest peak, Cima Tosa, with its 3.173 metres, Cima Vallon, that dominates the Val d'Algone and Baita Valon, or Cima Dodici, are only a few of the spectacular peaks in this group. At dusk and dawn you can admire the “Enrosadira”, a natural phenomena unique to the Dolomites when the dolomite rock turns to a fiery red.
