The Dolomiti di Brenta trek is a new route all around the Brenta Group, the western chain of the Dolomites in the heart of one of the wildest natural parks in Italy: the Adamello Brenta Nature Park.
Dolomiti Brenta Trek - Discovering the Brenta Dolomites on foot
The "Dolomiti di Brenta Trek" (DBT) - like its counterpart the "Dolomiti di Brenta Bike" a bikers' paradise opened last summer - caters for two different types of walkers. The "expert" route has been planned for serious and practised hikers, who want to enjoy the mountains one hundred percent and experience staying in high altitude refuges, alpine cow-sheds and bivouac huts, whilst the "country" route is for families and those who prefer gentler mountain slopes and walking without forsaking the pleasure of returning to a comfortable hotel to rest after the outing.
The trail is conceived as a single itinerary in the brenta Group, that enables to appreciate its beauty, from the gentle Alpine panoramas famous throughout the world, to the wildest corners. All without compulsory stages or an enforced pace. The route, in several stages, takes you to the most beautiful places in the group and everyone can plan their own DBT as they please, depending on their own ability and time available. Seven high mountain refuges (all above an altitude of 2,000 metres), a dozen or so alpine cow-sheds and various bivouac huts provide hospitality. All the itineraries, the two official trails and the alternative variations, are marked with the official "Dolomiti di Brenta Trek" signs.
On the Internet site of the route www.dolomitibrentatrek.it you can download all the technical info to walk in tranquillity: maps, altimeters, GPS tracks and all the addresses of the accommodation structures associated with the project that offer hospitality tailored for the hiker.
Hospitality is the great innovation of the "Dolomiti di Brenta Trek" as it offers the magical experience of spending a night in one of the excellent high altitude alpine refuges in these mountains, where you can also enjoy the traditional flavours of the Trentino wine and food. Hospitality in a cow-shed instead offers the hiker an opportunity to capture one of the last remnants of genuine alpine life
