Walking-tour to hut Canziani at Lago Verde

This hike in Val d’Ultimo gives us an amazing view to the surrounding 3,000 meter peaks.

Our tour starts at the parking space of the “Lago di Fontana Bianca” (1,885 mt above sea level) where also the street to the Val’Ultimo ends. We take the marker no. 140 and pass the restaurant on the right side. The path leads us up and after 20 minutes we reach the first turnoff, we walk into the direction of “Lago Verde”. We leave the timber line behind us and the path gets steeper and steeper. But the landscape and the surrounding mountains are wonderful so that we forget the effort.

It’s a warm and sunny day in autumn, but on the peaks there is already snow. Now we have reached the 2,500 meter level and the air is quite cool, but we can already see the hut Canziani and are looking forward to enjoying a warm drink there. After almost two hours we finally reach “Lago Verde” and enjoy the amazing color of the water. Now we know why this lake has its name!

The hut Canziani is situated at 2,560 mt above sea level, here we have a wonderful view to the surrounding mountains: Cima Sternai (3,443 mt.), Cima Sternai Meridionale (3,385 mt), Cima Fontana Bianca (3,253 mt) and Gioveretto (3,439 mt). After a rest in the hut we start our way back.

This mountain hike can also be continued, e.g. to Lago Lungo (2,340 mt) or until Passo Rabbi (2,449 mt). The hut is also base for tours to the glacier or hikes to the surrounding alps and huts in the neighboring Trentino.
