The entire Dolomites mountain group is an enormous playground, full of routes, trails and paths. The Alto Adige-Trentino region, in north Italy, is the ideal destination for trekking enthusiasts. Trentino, situated in the bottom of the Italian Alps, is famous for the endless opportunities that offer to the trekkers. Since 1896 when the first trail ‘’Osvaldo Orsi’ was established, thus connecting the shelter of Pedrotti e Tosa with Tuckett's one, the mountain group of Dolomites di Brenta, in the north part of the Brenta peak, offers many kilometers of trails for different levels of ability.
