Carisolo Things to Do

  • Val Genova

    Carisolo is located where the Val Genova meets the Val Rendena. Val Genova is a dead end, remote, with beautiful scenery including the Cascata Nardis, and Bedole. It is located inside the Parco Natural Adamello Brenta. If you go far back into the Val Genova, you will then be at the base of the Lobbie and Adamello.

  • Mushroom Picking.

    Go mushroom picking. It's fantastic. Only pick Porcini and Finferling (Chanterelles or Gallinacci).Have fun. Don't Trust anybody who tells you where to go get mushrooms. :-) It's a great sport here, and people regularly fib about their spots. If you found some mushrooms in your secret spot near the river, tell everyone you found them high up behind...

  • L'Eremo di S. Martino

    In one of the steepest, most inaccessible perches of the surrounding mountains, curious hikers will come across a tiny white washed chapel and hermits cabin, that was built here sometime before 1312. It was here that local pious holy men retired to leave the world behind and get closer to god. It was here in 1695 that documents refer to two hermits...

    The Trentino and Carisolo is a bit inconvenient to get to unless you have a car. Generally flying in from the US consists of a flight to Milano Malpensa airport, a bus to the center, a train to trento and then another bus to Carisolo. It can be very long and tiring. However, if you're flying here from within Europe, you can make the trip much shorter and much more pleasant by flying into Verona or Montechiari. This is a particularly good option from London, Munchen, Paris, Frankfurt etc. . From either of these two airports, you can get to Carisolo and surroundings in about 1 and 1/2 hours.

Carisolo Local Customs

  • Summer Pasture ş

    The high alpine meadows are where folks brought their herds to high pasture. There is no more peaceful, happy, bountiful sight and sound than big lazy happy cows strolling and muching their way through a high fresh green pasture, and the gentle clang of their bells.In the old days, you could go up to the Malga where the cows were stationed during...

  • Fourth of July in Carisolo

    Nearly Every Family in Carisolo had members who emigrated After the Second World War. Some of the most heated battles of the 1st and 2nd world war took place here and many families decided to emigrate. Many of them came to the United States though sizable numbers are in London, Canada, South American, Australia and everywhere else. "Quan'ca l'e' na...

    Many people in this region do not consider themselves Italian exactly. They speak a dialect that is much more different from Italian, than for example, Spanish or Catalan is from standard Italian. Their culture, cuisine and traditions are about as different from Tuscany as Catalan is from Easter Island. Having developed their independant culture in...

Carisolo Warnings and Dangers

    Admire the wildflowers, but DO NOT pick them! The people who live in and have foraged, pastured, and cultivated this land have done so with great care. Recently the mountains surrounding Carisolo have been made into part of the Adamello-Brenta park. Please respect the mountains, and all it's beautiful inhabitants and leave the flowers, animals, etc. alone!

Carisolo What to Pack

    Luggage and bags: Bring a back pack that you can easily and quickly get into. You'll want to get your sweater, that orange, a little water, your binoculars.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Our constant mountain advice as children was to bring a heavy wool sweater even at the height of summer...don't wear it at first as you will sweat and then of course when you stop..it's chilly up high!

    Photo Equipment: Binoculars are essential to see those little Chamois, Marmots or other elusive wildlife on the hills. And to just admire the view from your various locations.

    If you're coming to this part of the world in the winter, you absolutely cannot miss skiing here. Madonna di Campiglio is one of Europe's Premier ski resorts with a huge terrain that covers 2 sides of the valley. While Pinzolo is much smaller and often has less snow, there are plans afoot (have been for years and now finally about to be realized) that will connect the two resorts with a world cup class downhill run and more lifts. This would make a large and beautiful resort although some are concerned about environmental drawbacks.

    Equipment: You can rent ski's in Pinzolo and Campiglio. My favorite spots are Nardis Sport and Il Laboratorio in Pinzolo and Lorenzetti Sport in Campiglio.

  • Climb the Dolomiti

    Climb the mountains of the Dolomite Chain. The Dolomiti Di Brenta is Amazing! It's so nice in the evening when the rock glows pink in the sunset! Here's a view from our back yard in Italy. What's that above my head?…why it's an Alp. It's true, when most people think of the Alps, they don't think of Italy. But the Alps sprawl across several...
