The peaks of Adamello and Presanella with their granite rocks and the Vedretta del Mandrone are the real stars of the show here, the tour takes place  between the Val di Sole and the Val Rendena and with the biggest protected area in Trentino, the Adamello-Brenta Natural Park.

Author’s recommendation

The area is surrounded by peaks which culminate to the north with the Cevedale chain (3.769m) - San Matteo (3.676m), and 13 peaks o ver 3.500m, and to the south with Adamello (3.554m) and Presanella (3.558m) enclosing the vastest glacial expanse in the Italian Alps the Vedretta del Mandrone, and 17 cubic km of ice. These mountains were the scene of the White War.
