A lovely, lightly trafficked itinerary that isn’t excessively long to enjoy the views and landscapes from Doss del Sabion to Valagola Lake.
This hike of intermediate difficulty takes you from Doss del Sabion, which can be reached by lift, to the stunning Valagola Lake.
The itinerary starts high up in the alpine pastures then descends gradually to the banks of the lake in the Valagola valley between Doss del Sabion, Cima Nardis and Fracinglo.
Valagola Lake is an ideal spot to spend a day immersed in the lush forests and breathtaking views of the Brenta Dolomites. The crystal-clear waters of the lake change color as the day wears on, from intense blues through to varying hues of green.
The perfect spot for a picnic off the beaten path.
If heading back along the same route, plan your return trip carefully based on the lift closing times.
Please note that the practicability of the itineraries in a mountain environment is strictly linked to the contingent conditions and is therefore influenced by natural phenomena, environmental changes and weather conditions. For this reason, the information contained in this page may have changed. Before leaving for a tour, make sure the path you will approach is still accessible by contacting the owner of the mountain hut, the alpine guides or the visitor centres of the nature parks, the info offices of the local tourist board.
