This itinerary takes to the big hill Dossone di Cembra, where you can find some of the most beautiful and precious peat bogs of Trentino area. They are ancient glacier lakes where, after a natural process, thick peat layers produced by the water plants over the millennia gathered together. The peat bog vegetation is composed by unique moss types and rare marsh plants.

The lake Lac del Vedes in Grumes is certainly one of the most beautiful and better conserved peat bogs of the all Trentino area. The guided tour with wooden platforms and information panels describes the local rarities and the origin of the peat bog.
