Val di BreguzzoThe Val di Breguzzo in particular is simply paradise for winter hikers. This is one of the most beautiful, unspoilt valleys in the Giudicarie and its distinctive morphological features make it a great choice for this sport. The alpine environment exists at very low altitudes and allows snowshoe users to start their trek as early as 1150 m (Presa locality), where there is a handy large car park. From here, hikers can ascend the valley and reach the peaks, which lie in a crown arrangement that forms a wide, panoramic amphitheatre culminating in the Cop di Breguzzo at more than 3,000 m.
D'Arno and TrivenaThis glacially-formed valley splits in the middle part, creating two splendid sub-valleys: the Arnò and the Trivena. Just above the Arnò and Trivena malghe (1650 m), the landscape opens into a vast territory, enchanting and wild, offering an endless selection of snowshoe itineraries.
