Hardly any other mountain range in the Alps is as famous as the Dolomites. But while more and more mountain hikers are drawn to the Sesto Dolomites or the Rosengarten, west of the Adige Valley lies another real mountain paradise: The Brenta Dolomites and the Paganella. The steep and rugged peaks of the range are in no way inferior to their famous namesakes in the east, while fantastic mountain hiking trails and via ferratas lead directly through the dramatic rock walls. The Italian mountain huts and Alpine pastures have their own charm and spoil the hungry hikers with classic Trentino cuisine.

We have selected twelve first-class hikes in the Brenta Dolomites and on the Paganella Massif. These include Alpine Tours, summit climbs and via ferratas. But the two different Brenta crossings are a dream for every passionate mountain hiker. Away from the cable cars, the narrow mule tracks take you through the rugged high mountain world. Thanks to the numerous mountain huts, the hikes can easily be extended to a hut tour lasting several days.

The two central towns of Molveno and Andalo are easily accessible from Trento and are a perfect starting point for your explorations of the surrounding mountains. So grab your backpack and your mountain boots and discover the Dolomiti Paganella.
