Andalo lies on a grassy pass at an altitude of 1042 meters and extends over a green plateau between the Brenta Dolomites – UNESCO World Heritage – and the Paganella. Part of its territory is inside the Adamello Brenta Nature Park. It is covered by coniferous forests up to 1800m, then giving way to alpine meadows and rocky vegetation.
Andalo lies on a grassy pass at an altitude of 1042 meters and connects Val di Non and Banale.
The cradle of modern mountaineering, the Brenta Dolomites, entirely protected by the Adamello Brenta Nature Park, look like a 42 km long and 12 km wide rock road. Hundreds of walking and trekking routes start from Andalo, Molveno and the Plateau of Pradel to reach the absolute beauty of this Dolomite group. Several are the paths of different length and difficulty, up to the fascinating Vie Ferrate. These paths cross the living rock and allow connections between the various Refuges of the Brenta Group.
On the other side, there is the Paganella range (2125 m.). Its wooded slope descends regularly towards the plateau. While the eastern side of the mountain drops steeply down the Adige valley with a vertical rock wall. From the village several ski lifts allow you to enjoy 50 km of ski slopes in winter and many hiking and mountain biking trails in summer.
The territory of Andalo intersects south and west with that of Molveno. Lake Molveno is one of the most famous naturalistic destinations of the Dolomites.
To the north, past the Priori pass, you can descend into the wide Valle dello Sporeggio in the municipalities of Cavedago and Spormaggiore.
To the north of the town, you can admire a beautiful karstic lake, one of the most curious in Trentino. Normally it is 1000 meters long and 200 meters wide. Its waters, abundant during periods of intense rainfall activity, hide just as quickly, infiltrating the unexplored underground caves. The lake, in which glacial phenomena are evident, is fed by underground springs. At a short distance there is a sports center, from which equipped routes and walks start.
