The whole itinerary is on a forest road, that through light curves and wide hairpin turns, leads to Malga Cere; the view from up there is just breathtaking since the hut is located right under the Monte Setole, on a vantage point on the underlying valley and on the Cima 12 mountain chain.
There is the possibility to shorten the tour through a shortcut that leads directly to the hut (with little snow this route could be hard for not specialists).
The slope isn’t very hard and therefore good for everyone, and for the most trained ones there is the possibility to extend the tour up until Malga Valpiana and Cima Setole.
Malga Cere offers the possibility to stop for a yummy break or a lunch with local products while enjoying the view. The malga also organizes events and activities, and of course has rooms for overnight stays.
The stability of the snow cover is subjected to sudden and unpredictable changes.
Always check the avalanche bulletin (www.meteotrentino.it) and ask about the weather conditions in the local Alpine Guides offices.
The gpx tracks are just an approximation of the suggested route and can not be followed without a preliminary evaluation of the current situation of the snow and the ground.
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.
