Mountain tour from Solda to Martello

The Val di Solda and Val Martello valleys are both located at the feet of the Ortles mountain group with its almost 4,000 m high peaks and countless glacier snouts.

By the Solda Cable Car we reach the Rif. Città di Milano mountain hut (Schaubachhütte) at 2,583 m asl. The path no. 151 proceeds parallel to the chair lift “Madritsch” up to the Rif. Madriccio mountain hut (2,824 m als.). We cross a bleak rocky desert, but upon closer inspection we are surprised by the speciose blooming alpine flora. The Rif. Madriccio, which is the centre of the Solda Skiing Area in winter, is the last rest point. A fantastic view on the Ortles accompanies us uphill until the mountain pass. Stunning landscapes await us while our descent at the Martello side.

The path proceeds downhill through a heath with varied surroundings. After more than 3 hours afoot we reach the Rif. Nino Corsi mountain hut (Zufallhütte) at 2,267 m a.s.l. From here there are only 30 more minutes to walk to the Rif. Genziana mountain hut (Enzianhütte). There, at the parking space, also the bus to Coldrano starts. From Coldrano the train brings us to Spondigna where we take again the bus to come back to Solda. If you want to come back to Solda by bus, please check the timetable before!
