Located in the heart of the Alps, it borders Switzerland and Austria, Lombardy in the south west and Veneto in the south east. Its territory, which is mainly mountainous, includes the , the most famous and most visited mountain range in the world. . Enchanting alpine landscapes, dream lakes and numerous summer and winter activities draw adventurous tourists to the region.
Trentino – Alto Adige is also rich in cultural and artistic aspects due to the ethnographic diversity of the peoples who inhabit its valleys and enrich the offerings of the region.
Skiing, Hiking and Wellness Activities
The region’s main attraction, the majestic peaks, are within everyone’s capabilities because they can be reached by: hiking trails, via ferrata (which are well established rock climbing paths), or comfortable chair lifts that reach even the highest altitudes. At the top, alpine refuges offer refreshments and incredible views. The main tourist season is the winter, when the most renowned ski resorts in Europe attract the interest of visitors: Madonna di Campiglio, Ortisei and Corvara. But even in summer, numerous vacationers flock to the mountains to benefit from the healthy and cool climate of the beautiful Alpine lakes. The many different spas are the second attraction, offering wellness activities combined with fairytale landscapes to create a regenerating stay in nature.
The Trentino side of Lake Garda is the most known and visited corner. In addition to the magnificent lake with its intense blue color and its visitor friendly coasts, Garda Trentino is a paradise for sailing sports enthusiasts, thanks to the predictable supply of winds that never stop blowing and allow you to sail at any time of the day. The alpine climate mitigated by the Mediterranean influence of Garda has favored the growth and development of indigenous species that can be admired especially in the local natural Park of Baldo Trentino, which has earned the title of Hortus Italiae “the Garden of Italy“. Here, as in Merano, thanks to the mild climate, the tourist season lasts from March to November.
Another strong point of Trentino-Alto Adige are the 1000 km of cycle paths, interconnected with the railways for green mobility, which extend mostly along the banks of the main waterways, where there are also various bars and cafes.
There are ten protected natural areas in the region, among which there is also a large part of the Stelvio National Park shared with Lombardy and a UNESCO-protected Biosphere Reserve that stretches from Garda to the Brenta Dolomites, whose pinnacles shaped the history of mountaineering and at whose feet is the wonderful Lake Molveno, which boasts the Blue Flag obtained for the quality of the water. The area boasts flora and fauna of native species unique in the world and some animals now extinct in the rest of the Alps, such as the lynx, the brown bear and the bearded vulture.
From the Small Dolomites to the Lessini plateau, in Vallarsa and on the Pasubio massif, the wild landscapes are still intact and man’s work can only be found in the remains of the fortifications erected by Austrian and Italian soldiers over a hundred years ago. The incredible Road of the 52 Tunnels lets us retrace, on foot, bike or horseback, a dense network of paths dating back to the First World War. Going north we find the Valsugana, adorned by splendid valleys, plateaus and numerous swimming lakes, some of which have earned the European Blue Flag. To the north east is the Val Pusteria which ends with the famous three peaks of Lavaredo, included in the homonymous natural park where you find the azure, much loved lago di Braies.
Further south, the most attractive valleys open up, such as Val Badia and Val Gardena. All around, the Sella group, the Catinaccio and the Sassolungo group form the ideal setting for the most refined and exclusive winter holidays.
The southern part of Alto Adige, on the other hand, is rich in terraced vineyards and apple orchards, characteristic of the landscape of the Bassa Atesina, where the largest natural basin in the province is located, Lake Caldaro, renowned for sailing sports and for carp fishing.
