Safety information

Choose the route according to your experience and your physical preparation: start with short distances first!

The more, the merrier: leaving alone for a hike can be risky, travel with at least one other person, the experience of a Trekking is better when shared with friends and family!

Program your Trekking in advance, check trails and paths on the maps, have a look online to find out more about your itinerary, ask somebody who already walked the same route.

Prepare your backpack: have a look at our check-list to be sure you already packed all the equipment you may need during the Trekking!

Don’t forget to check the weather forecast.

If you really want to try the experience of a Trekking but you don’t feel ready to do it by your own,  just ask one of our Alpine Guides!

Try to estimate an average journey-time of every route, considering the physical condition of each member of the group.

Inform the Hut owner or who is waiting for you at home about your time of arrival and the itinerary.

Keep your eyes open: while you’re walking, check the number of each footpath, but don’t forget to enjoy nature and its magic!

A plan B is always a good idea! Organize an alternative route in case of bad weather or unforeseen event: go back if it’s necessary, play it safe!

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.

Passo Rolle

Turn-by-turn directions

From the Rosetta Hut walk downhill on the 701 path towards San Martino di Castrozza, once at an altitude 2.300 metres above sea level, take the 712 path (also called “dei Finanzieri” path) until you get to the start of the Bolver Lugli al Cimon della Pala via ferrata, recently renovated. This very panoramic and lofty via ferrata goes up the southern side of Cimon della Pala and permits to reach the Fiamme Gialle bivouac (3.005 m.a.s.l.). From the bivouac, walk downhill towards Passo del Travignolo (2.935 m.a.s.l.), to admire the wonderful view on the Val Venegia and the route of the first day of the Tour. To get back to the Rosetta Hut, walk down the Val dei Cantoni on the 716 path to climb up to Passo Bettega (2.660 m.a.s.l.) and then reach the Pale di San Martino plateau and the Hut.  From here, it is possible to get back to Passo Rolle following the 701 path first and then the 712 path (also called “dei Finanzieri” path) or you can enjoy the descent on the Rosetta tramway and the Colverde gondolas to reach San Martino di Castrozza and then get back to Passo Rolle by bus or by taxi. Possible variation: From Passo del Travignolo, it is possible to climb up in about one hour to the top of the near Cima della Vezzana (3.192 m.a.s.l.) following the 716 path, to reach the highest Peak of the mountain range of Pale di San Martino.
