WORLD RENOWNED OUTDOOR PARK
Thanks to its peculiar geographical conditions, the great morphological, botanical and naturalistic variety, the network of footpaths, Alpine huts and shelters, winter skiing, MTB and cycle tourism, water sports such as canoeing, rafting and fishing.
A VARIETY OF CLIMATES, NATURE, CULTURE AND TRADITIONS
A wide height difference, the orientation of the valley with a completely sunny side and the other northward have contributed to the development of very different natural and climatic environments and traditions: each season has its own charm to be discovered.
LARGE PROTECTED AREA
To the north the Stelvio National Park, established in 1935, and to the south, the Adamello-Brenta Natural Park, more recently set up but very active.
FYI: the northern side of Presanella Mount (Stavel) will probably become a protected area due to its peculiar characteristics studied by a European project. Moreover it is currently being established as the River Park on the river Noce.
THE ROOF OF TRENTINO
In Val di Sole there are some of the top peaks in Trentino: Mount Cevedale, 3766 m, is the tallest while Mount Presanella, 3558 m, is the highest mountain entirely located in Trento province.
AN OPEN AIR GEOLOGICAL MUSEUM
Val di Sole embodies 300 million years of history:
The Ortles Cevedale with its metamorphic rocks , the Adamello Presanella made of volcanic rocks and the magnificent Brenta Dolomites, 3000 m of sedimentary rocks, the ancient site of a great coral reef.
NATURALISTIC TREASUREFrom the 600 m of the valley floor to the 3000 m of the everlasting snow there is only 35 km: a short distance but which holds a great variety of temperatures, vegetation, fauna and flavours.
UNESCO HERITAGE SITE
There are only 9 sites around the world where the Dolomite rock can be found, amongst them is this area in Trentino, which is why this area should be protected. Here once there were volcanoes and coral reefs. Layers over layers, the youngest over the oldest ones, of this sedimentary rock where the remains of corals can be found, it is possible to read the millions-of-years old history of life.
On the Ortles Cevedale and on the Adamello Presanella there lays the largest surface of Alpine Glacier in Italy.
Val di Sole was modelled as a V shape by glaciers, leaving on the surface big erratic boulders which can be seen in the lateral valleys of Rabbi and Peio. Later floods have left sedimentary material which works as a sponge and functions as water reservoir making heavy rain falls less dangerous.
WATER RESERVE, WEALTH AND VARIETY
Noce is one of the 5 most beautiful rivers in Europe and source of life and work for many, as the Venetian sawmills and many watermills along its path, which favoured agriculture and animal rearing, testify.
Val di Sole with its 115 lakes and little lakes is first place in relation to the surface area; they represent pearls of rare beauty and walk destinations but also water reserves. It is interesting to think that a snowflake which falls on Cevedale ends up partly in the river Adige (Trentino-Veneto) and partly in the river Olio (Lombardy). The mineral waters are linked to geology, being mineralised by the richness of the different rocks, and have given origin to the Pejo Spa and the Rabbi Spa.
SITE OF IMPORTANT TRANSNATIONAL SPORT AND ENVIRONMENTAL EVENTS
Val di Sole is at the centre of the transnational tours of the Central Alps’ Parks and many other transnational mountain bike itineraries such as the Dolomite Brenta-Bike, the Brenta-Trek and the Transalp.
On the perennial snow and ice of the Ortles-Cevedale and Adamello-Presanella ran the Western front during the Great War. An amazing itinerary is possible of high altitude museums including the highest, Punta Linke (3632m), where many remains and artefacts are housed still intact.
INTERNATIONAL ALPINISTIC DIMENSION
Douglas William Freshfield at 19 was the first to ascend the Presanella on 25.08.1864, while Julius von Payer, Austrian officer, climbed over Cevedale on 07.09.1865.
HOLIDAY FOR DISEASE PREVENTION AND FOR MAINTAINING HEALTH
Let’s think about wood’s aromatherapy when it rains, autumnal chromotherapy, the health benefits of thermal waters.
