A territory of culture, nature and emotions.
The Stelvio National Park is spread all around the Ortles-Cevedale Massif and is the largest protected area in the Alps. In Val di Sole the Park covers the beautiful valleys of Peio and Rabbi. The park offers protection to many animal species, including deer, chamois, hares, marmots, ermines, golden eagles and bearded vultures, as well as a rich variety of plants, flowers and minerals. Seeing it all up close it’s easy! Just take part in the many excursions organized by the Park Guides.
The Adamello Brenta Nature Park, less extended but not less valuable for environmental value, is also known because it is the only alpine area where the bear survives, but the varieties of flora and fauna within the area are numerous and its mountains, bristling with spires, are a unique attraction. The Park organizes several activities and excursions to let visitors discover the charm of its landscapes.
Rivers and Lakes
The River Noce rises near mount Corno dei Tre Signori (mt. 3360), in the Ortles-Cevedale Group and, after crossing the entire valley, it flows into Lake Santa Giustina. On the river you can practise different activities and each of them will let you appreciate the charm of the river and the landscapes that it crosses:
In the incessant rise and erosion of the tops, peaks and ridges of the mountains in Val di Sole, seeing an alpine lake pleases the eye and the mind and it is a source of peace and quiet. Val di Sole has about 100 lakes: some are isolated, others are gathered in clusters, all stretches of water with blue and turquoise tones. The largest concentration of these mountain lakes is located in the Ortles – Cevedale Group, between the valleys of Peio and Rabbi, immersed in charming and unique sceneries.
The taste of your holiday
In the lower part of Val di Sole it is grown an exquisite agricultural produce whose name is more linked to the nearby Val di Non: the apple, or more precisely the “Melinda”, well known on all national markets. However, we can not forget dairy products, all made from milk of grazing cows. These range from butter to ricotta and cheeses: the soft “casolet from Val di Sole” and the local cured cheese, the Grana Trentino. And yet cured meats, berries and honey. Do not miss all the markets where you can buy local products from the producers directly: from artisans, breeders and farmers.
