Golden yellow, rusty orange and coppery red – the mountain slopes in Trentino in the north of Italy come alive with colour in autumn. The region’s wonderful landscapes are a perfect destination to prolong your hiking season. When the weather turns in the north of the Alps, Trentino still enjoys countless hours of sunshine, mild temperatures, and a mix of exhilarating summits and the “dolce vita”.

In this Collection, we’ve put together 10 hikes through the impressive Dolomites for you. Some of the routes are gentle hikes suitable for the whole family whilst others feature demanding climbs up breathtaking peaks. Trentino’s mountains are characterized by picturesque valleys like the Val di Fumo, unusual rocky peaks in the Pala group mountains and rustic mountain huts like the Rifugio Pedrotti. You can often enjoy the picture-perfect scenery to yourself in late summer and autumn, when the high season is already over. At this time of year, the forested slopes beneath the jagged mountain teeth which are typical of the southern Dolomites are painted in the beautiful colours of autumn. In addition, the mild temperatures are ideal for hiking. If you still work up a sweat, you can dip your feet in the crystal clear mountain lakes to cool off.

You can taste regional delicacies like smoked bacon and spicy mountain cheese in a cosy malga (Italian for alpine hut) and experience breathtaking sunrises after a night on the mountain. Of course, excellent local wine and Italian coffee are also included. The huts, where you can stop for a bite to eat or stay overnight, are open until October. Don’t forget to reserve your bed in advance. So, pack your hiking boots, camera and sunglasses, and prolong your hiking season in the charming region of Trentino.
