The Brenta Dolomites in Trentino

A paradise for climbing, mountaineering and hiking

The Brenta Dolomites in Trentino, Italy, stretch over a length of about 40 km. The Brenta Dolomites are bordered to the south by Lake Molveno and Valle Giudicarie, to the west by Val Rendena and Campo Carlo Magno Pass, to the north by Val Meledrio and Val di Sole and to the east by Val di Non. The main towns in the Brenta Dolomites are Madonna di Campiglio, Pinzolo, Malè and Molveno.

The Brenta Dolomites in Italy are part of the Adamello-Brenta Natural Park and are also part of the UNESCO World Heritage Dolomites. They include numerous peaks of over 3,000 m in altitude. The most famous are the Cima Brenta (3,151 m), the Cima Tosa (3,173 m), the Cima d'Ambiez (3,102 m) and the Torre di Brenta (3,008 m). Another attraction in the Brenta Dolomites is Lake Tovel. It became known as it goes very dark red colour in the summer months since the 1960s, due to algae in the summer months.

The Brenta Group has one of the most famous alpine highways and the most beautiful continuous via ferrata in the Alps: the "Via delle Bocchette".

The "Via delle Bocchette"

The Brenta Group is one of the best mountain ranges in the Alpine region with iron ladders. The "Via delle Bocchette" in the south of the Brenta Dolomites is well known far beyond the borders of Italy. Although the tour is quite demanding, it is very popular with mountain enthusiasts. And rightly so, because this trail is a unique panoramic track, which continuously runs very close to the Brenta main ridge at an average altitude of approx. 2,500 to 2,700 m. The optimal starting point is Madonna di Campiglio.
