The highlights of the tour? The trenches and the military cemetery at Passo Nota, the botanic and natural heritage of Tremalzo, the bird ringing centre at Casèt, the view over Lake Ledro and Lake Garda and the landscapes in the mountains and on the valley floor. 

Author’s recommendation

Why not make a stop and learn something more about Valle di Ledro? The Pile-Dwelling Museum along the shores of Lake Ledro, the Monsignor Ferrari Visitor Centre in Tremalzo, the War Museum in Bezzecca and the Foletto Apothecary Museum in Pieve are well worth a detour.

Safety information

Stretches of the path leading down from Caset are particulary bumpy and steep.

On the way down, please be particularly mindful of hikers.

Please note that the practicability of the itineraries in a mountain environment is strictly linked to the contingent conditions and is therefore influenced by natural phenomena, environmental changes and weather conditions. For this reason, the information contained in this page may have changed. Before leaving for a tour, make sure the path you will approach is still accessible by contacting the owner of the mountain hut, the alpine guides or the visitor centres of the nature parks, the info offices of the local tourist board.
