Cable Car to the alpine hut Solander. Here you will face a sequence of declines and short rises to gravelled roads, entertaining paths and difficult tracks for a tour that leads from the Monte Vigo down into the valley. Your effort will be rewarded with mesmerizing views and a 360° panorama of the Val di Sole, the Brenta Dolomites and the Ortles-Cevedale mountains.

Directions

Near the exit of the cable car of Daolasa you turn onto the gravelled road that leads to the Monte Vigo and the alpine hut Orso Bruno (2,159 m; view on the Brenta Dolomites). Dann continue downhill on a very stony road in the direction of the Panciana alp. Little below it, you turn left in the direction of the alpine hut Orti. The following short part is more challenging (beware of wooden steps) and brings you to a forest road that leads to the lakes “Laghi Malghet di Mezzana”, which you follow until you reach a hairpin curve. The path that starts here will, eventually, turn into a comfortable gravelled road and bring you to the Upper Fazzon alp. You continue downhill on a forest road until you reach Fazzon. Here start an asphalt road, leading to the Lake Capriolo. After a trip around its shores you can continue downhill to the parking area (in the vicinity of the Lower Fazzon alp, with the visitors’ centre of the nature preserve Adamello Brenta that is devoted to the bear Bruno). From the parking area you continue on the gravelled road until you reach its first junction, where you turn right onto a dwarf’s path. It goes steeply downhill and reaches the second last hairpin curve of the road that connects Pellizzano and the Lake Capriolo. Continue to the first hairpin curve where you will find a path to the entrenchments, past it and into the bike path, leading back to Daolasa.
