The Nature Park

Entering the park, nature immediately wins us over with unspoiled landscapes and unique beauty. Here we can experience unequaled emotions: admire the Brenta Dolomites, majestic peaks turning to red at sunset. Stroll along fairytale lakes, where you can lose yourself in a wild nature. Or put yourself to the test and reach the Adamello glacier, one of the largest in Europe.

Wherever you can venture into thick woods, cool off at the rushing streams that flow forming wonderful waterfalls. Feel at one with the uncontaminated nature, breathe clean air and admire places where various species of plants and wild animals live. Meanwhile, in the thick of the woods, the brown bear, an ancient inhabitant of these places, walks solitary and undisturbed.

Visiting the inhabited villages in the surrounding valleys, one breathes the ancient wisdom and the industriousness of the people who live there. There is historical and artistic evidence handed down from past generations in the constant search for a balance between Man and Nature.

Where we are
The Adamello Brenta Nature Park (620.51 sq km) is the largest protected area in Trentino. Established in 1967, it extends into western Trentino and includes the Adamello and Brenta mountain ranges. It is crossed by the Val Rendena and surrounded by the valleys of Non, di Sole and Giudicarie. The altitude ranges from 477m to 3558m. In 1967 the Autonomous Province of Trento established the two provincial parks, Adamello Brenta and Paneveggio Pale di San Martino.
