Wayfarers of Flavour
Enjoy the Alpenglow on the Pale di San Martino massif, the vividly starry skies at high altitude, the colours and sounds of the Val di Fiemme woods, the mountain pastures and then the masi farmsteads to watch the milking process. And then there's the magic of waking up in a tree house before having a Kneipp thermal bath or an adventure in the Val di Fassa heartland of Ladin culture. Along the way, treat yourself to a Cheese Experience – maybe a Puzzone di Moena DOP, and then the dumpling-like canederli and spätzle, also available to go. Travel light and don't forget your hiking boots and snowshoes.
Taste Trails | Val di Fiemme
from farmhouse to farmhouse
A splash of colour and a scent of nature along the edge of the woods of the officially titled Magnificent Community of Fiemme, seasoned with genuine flavours which manage to combine tradition and innovation in a range of exquisite culinary delights.
This circuit route which both departs and arrives at the charming town of Cavalese brings us on a tasty tour of the surrounding mountain farms where we’ll be welcomed by the sweet scent of hay and wake up to the aroma of freshly baked cakes and biscuits. From cheeses to speck, from craft beer to the renowned “torta de frati 'mbriaghi”, literally “cake of the drunken friars”, we’ll get to know the magnificent Val di Fiemme and the products it has to offer along the way. The chances are we’ll become so fond of the dishes that we’ll find it hard to live without them!
Taste Trails | Val di Fassa
Val di Fassa for real gourmands
A trip into the heart of Ladin culture for a new and enlightening perspective on local tradition with its distinctive “tabià” or characteristic wooden haysheds, charming hamlets, the suggestive masks on display at the Ladin Museum of Fassa and ancient flavours brought back to life by able hands. All of this accompanied by an unparalleled view across the majestic Dolomites of the Val di Fassa, from the Catinaccio-Rosengarten group to the Sella massif.
Taste Trails | At the feet of the Pale di San Martino Dolomites
Eco green tour
A natural and reinvigorating experience in a serene and comforting setting, accentuated by the soft hum of the forests, the scent of undergrowth and the fragrance of wild mountain flowers. The visual effects are no less vivid, with a kaleidoscope of colours crowned by the soft pink of the “Enrosadira”, or Alpenglow, phenomenon that illuminates the Pale di San Martino Dolomites, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Besides the unparalleled natural beauty of the area, this corner of Trentino, which encompasses the Val Canali and the Cereda Pass, not to mention vast swathes of the Paneveggio-Pale di San Martino Natural Park, pulses with history and culture such as in the hamlet of Tonadico with its splendid Palazzo Scopoli, now known as the “Casa del Cibo”, quite literally the “House of Food”. This circuit route offers a unique experience for both mind and body, with a range of easy, soothing walks to help you get back in touch with nature, and yourself. Top this off with a wide variety of local cuisine which manages to delight the palate with a medley of traditional flavours and enticing aromas, all in complete respect of the surrounding environment with its stunning views and bountiful nature. Take your pick: a hearty local breakfast, a homemade packed lunch or snacks to take with you or a square traditional meal for dinner.
