CANYON RIO SAAS

NATURE & ADVENTURE

 

In the middle of the village of Fondo is located the Rio Sass Canyon, a gorge hollowed out by the flow of water from the torrent that crosses the village, which can be explored along cantilevered walkways and stairways. Starting from the village square, an expert guide accompanies you, equipped with helmet and cape, through the meanders of this canyon created by the "Rio Sass" stream through the erosion of the rock. In addition to the various phenomena created in the rock by the movement of the water, among the succession of curves and counter-curves, it is suggestive to note the presence of a flora of red and green algae, mosses, and ferns.

LAKE SMERALDO

Walks - Relaxation - Fishing

 

This lake was created by an artificial damming of the Sass stream in the1960s. It has an elongated and narrow shape, rather steep shores, and a landscape atmosphere typical of high mountains. Thanks to several footbridges, the lake is walkable over its entire extension, and fishing is possible almost everywhere. The waters are cold, well oxygenated, and regularly populated with rainbow trout from the streams, with sizes reaching 6 to 8 kilos, especially in October, when fishing is mainly for big fish. Lake Smeraldo does not only offer opportunities for sport fishing. From the footbridge that runs alongside it, it is possible to discover the Rio Sass canyon, which continues towards the village of Fondo and, during its course, draws surreal canyons with swirling slopes. A real tourist attraction, to be explored together with your partner, or with the whole family.

SAN ROMEDIO SANCTUARY

THE PATH IN THE ROCK – SAINT ROMEDIO - THE BEAR

 

 
   

   

 

It is located near Sanzeno (18 minutes by car from Villa Orso Grigio) and is certainly the most interesting example of medieval Christian art in Trentino. It is a well-known pilgrimage site, built on a limestone cliff over 70 metres high.

It is located in a beautiful natural setting; the architectural complex consists of several churches and chapels built on the rock. The entire structure is connected by a steep flight of 131 steps. The oldest chapel dates to the 11th century. Over the centuries, three other small churches, two chapels and seven aedicules of the Passion were built. This evocative place full of spirituality was created thanks to the figure of the hermit Romedius of Thaur. After the hermit's death, his followers dug his tomb into the rock, thus creating a cult that continues to this day.

 

The rock walk from Sanzeno to the sanctuary is an unmissable experience. At the base of the sanctuary there is also a wildlife area where a cute brown bear lives.

 

In summer (from the end of July to about mid-September) there is a shuttle bus service from the car park at al Mulino to the car park at the foot of the Sanctuary of S. Romedio.

 

Opening hours (FREE ADMISSION)

> From October to April: 9 a.m. - 5.30 p.m.

I PRADIEI

CYCLOPEDONAL

 

 

Val di Non welcomes cycling enthusiasts with a route through enchanting landscapes. The valley of apples, in April, with the blossoming, takes on the charm of a large white cloud. But it remains an enchanted place also in the following months, in the bright green of summer, and in the colourful coolness of autumn. A spectacle for those who love nature and cycling. As you can imagine, the practicability of itineraries in a mountain environment is closely linked to contingent conditions and therefore depends on natural phenomena, environmental changes, and weather conditions. For this reason, the information contained in this sheet may have changed. Before setting off, find out the status of your route by asking at Reception!

 

DIRECTIONS FOR THE ROUTE

The route is that of the upper Non Valley, about 21 kilometres long, which, thanks to the plateau-like shape of the Upper Valley, is an ideal destination for those who love to travel on two wheels. The recent cycle path is a splendid ring of paved and asphalted roads linking the villages of Malgolo, Romeno, Salter, Cavareno, Sarnonico, Ronzone, Malosco and Fondo and then returning to the village of Romeno through the boundless meadows of "Pradiei", which in winter are the setting for the "Ciaspolada", the famous snowshoe race.  The route is mostly flat, except for a few slight uphill climbs, for a total of about 500 metres in height difference.

Ask at Reception for a map of the route!

CASTEL THUN

THE MOST BEAUTIFUL CASTLE IN TRENTINO

 

Located on a hill, a few kilometres from Vigo di Ton (30 minutes by car from Villa Orso Grigio), Castel Thun is one of the most famous castles in Trentino. Inside it preserves intact the original furnishings of the 16th century, together with precious art collections, an important library, and a rich picture gallery.

Thun Castle is one of the most interesting examples of architecture in Trentino, the civil-military structure is typically in Gothic style and is surrounded by a complex system of fortifications consisting in towers, bastions, moat and battlements.  The "Spanish door" (1566) built with massive ashlar blocks is imposing.

The fortifications are central quadrangular with strong bulwarks for the defence with firearms, four square towers at the corners, and passing the fosse, another wall with slits and two medieval towers. Passing the drawbridge (1541) and the first courtyard with a long colonnade on the north side, consisting of eighteen massive stone columns, you will find the entrance of the palace of count. On the ground floor you will find the public rooms, while on the first floor the rooms of the lords. Among all different rooms, richly furnished, the most valuable is the "bishop's room", entirely panelled in pine, with a coffered ceiling and a monumental gate (1574), where the Prince-Bishop Alfonso Sigmund Thun used to sleep.

 

 

OPENING PERIOD: Castel Thun is open from Tuesday to Sunday from the end of March to the beginning of November. At other times it is only open on Saturdays and Sundays.

LAKE TOVEL

ADAMELLO - BRENTA NATURAL PARK

 

Do you know Lake Tovel? It is famous all over Europe because it used to turn red: a unique phenomenon! Today, however, the colours of its waters range from blue to incredible shades of green and it is definitely one of the places you must visit if you come to Val di Non! Since 1964 the phenomenon has not occurred, probably due to the reduced presence of cows in the alpine pastures; in fact, it was the cows' droppings that provided nutrients for the algae that made the water red.

 

WHERE?

Near the village of Tuenno: 20 minutes by car from Villa Orso Grigio. From there, follow the signs for Val di Tovel. In spring and summer comfortable shuttles take tourists to the banks, after departing from Cles and Tuenno.

 

HIKING

The first steps can be taken along the perimeter of the lake: just over 3 km where waterfalls, conifers, and even small beaches where you can enjoy the sun will enrich your view. The Val di Tovel valley surrounding the lake offers numerous paths: the Glare paths and the “Antiche Segherie” path are the most famous and can be done by medium-experienced walkers. More advanced hikers can take the splendid itinerary called “Giro delle Malghe”, among the traditional Trentino farmhouses. The complete tour starts near the lake and lasts a good five hours, but touches on magnificent landscapes and the enchanted meadow of Malga Flavona.

 

WHAT TO DO AT TOVEL LAKE?

The lake is not bathing but surely you can lie nearby breathing fresh air and enjoy the sun. Close to one shore is the Casa del Lago Rosso, an information centre on the history, flora and fauna of the area. Nearby it is not difficult to meet chamois, roe deer and marmots. An encounter with nature that only places like Lake Tovel and Trentino can offer.


 

LAKE TRET

ENJOY A GEW HOURS OF RELAXATION AT THE MOUNTAIN HUT AO IN THE DAIRY ON THE BANKS OF TRET LAKE

 

SOME INFORMATIONS

Lake Tret, or Santa Maria, is an artificial lake located near the village of Tret, a hamlet of Fondo, in the north-eastern part of Val di Non. To reach the lake, which has a surface area of 10,000 square metres, you can drive to the Scoiattolo refuge, in Le Plaze di Tret, turning off the main road towards the Palade pass, at the Le Ciaspole hotel. Leave your car in the car park and continue walking along path no. 512; with a difference in height of 350 metres and in about an hour's walk you will reach the lake. Nearby there is a refuge and an alpine hut for refreshments.

The path to the lake is 13 minutes by car from Villa Orso Grigio *****

 

After reaching the lake, you can continue to the Waldruhe restaurant, known for its excellent Kaiserschmarrn, a typical regional dish, which you can’t missing. Than take a walk around the beautiful lake. Fish, dragonflies, water plants and an island in the middle make Lake Tret one of the most beautiful natural lakes in South Tyrol. In the lake you can both fish and swim.


 

E-BIKE

A NEW AND DYNAMIC WAY TO ADMIRE THE WHOLE VAL DI NON

 

 

SOME INFORMATIONS

The success of e-bikes is undoubtedly a phenomenon that is changing the way to many cyclists ride and is bringing many other users closer to this wonderful sport. Due to the assisted pedalling, even those who cannot train constantly can discover Trentino on a bike, enjoying a few hours in the open air with the wind in their faces.

If you have never used an electric bike and, even more so, if you ride only occasionally, the advice is to start with easy rides to get to know both yourself and the bike: the engine has a battery that can run out and once you are without electric assistance, the bike weighs much more than a traditional bike and having to make difficult climbs can become an ordeal. With pedal-assisted MTBs you will also have to be careful to select routes suitable for your technical level, as the motor does not help your riding technique: avoid paths or single trails with rocks and roots if you have never done it before... a fall or a slip could ruin your day and your holiday!

 

Having said that... Ask the Reception for the map of the routes and... Have a good ride!

Visit the site for maps: http://rankipino.it/percorso.html

Visit https://www.visitvaldinon.it/it/ under "ESCURSIONI IN MAPPA" you can find all the routes loaded in Outdooractive including mountain bike and E-bike routes.
