The scenery of Trentino-South Tyrol has to be seen to be believed, as the tranquil and idyllic alpine lakes are framed by masses of lush green forest, rocky and mountainous terrain, and old, gorgeous castles and relics from its interesting past. The hiking trails aim to take in as much of this as possible, with long and winding paths traipsing through it all.
Best time to visit
March-September, when there is no snowfall and the temperature is warm
Relatively mild for most of the year, with temperatures rarely getting below 5 degrees celsius
How to get there
Flights to Venice or Milan and then approximately a 1 hour drive to Trentino-South Tyrol. Alternatively most Italian and European trains stop at the two main stations of Trento and Rovereto
The city of Trento, the capital of the region, is an excellent place to get to and start your trip before heading onwards to the hiking areas. Some of the hiking can be challenging, so being fit and in decent shape before arriving will maximise enjoyment of the activity. As Trentino-South Tyrol is an autonomous region, the villages, towns and cities are full of fascinating and rich histories and culture that have distinct and unique characteristics separate to Italy. The locals are very proud of this, and there are endless hours of exploration and discovery, thus ensuring there is always something to see and do
