Adamello Brenta Natural Park
From the Brenta Dolomites to the Adamello-Presanella glaciers
The Brenta Dolomites were inserted in the list of UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2009 and the Adamello-Brenta Natural Park represents the largest protected area in Trentino with over 620 square kilometres of coniferous forests, colourful lakes, wildlife and a rich and varied flora.
The park is surrounded on the east side by the Brenta Dolomites and on the west by the peaks over 3,000 m high of the Adamello-Presanella, famous for the largest glacier in Italy and for its wild environments dotted with streams, lakes and scenic waterfalls.
The attractions offered by the park are numerous and meet the desires of all kinds of tourists, from extreme sport lovers to families: Lake Tovel, with its green and blue shades; Val Genova, with its waterfalls; Vallesinella, with its crystalline water springs; the Cornisello lakes, with a spectacular view of the Dolomites; the Val d'Ambiez, with its fossil deposits; Val Daone, with its spectacular waterfalls and artificial lakes.
The park is rich in hiking routes that connect the valleys with the alpine refuges, where you can taste the local delicacies, and with the visitor centres, where you can discover the park from an educational point of view. In Carisolo, for example, you can study its geological history, while Spiazzo offers you information about the water history.
