Martello

The Val Martello stretches from Laces at 800 m asl up to the 3,760 m high summits of the Cima Cevedale in the Ortles mountain range.

Those who love mountaineering and mountains in general might be familiar with the Val Martello, as nature has been abundantly stocked. It is surrounded by the 3,700 m high glaciated peaks of the Ortles mountain range. Cevedale, Cima Cevedale, Gioveretto and Punta di Lasa, this area is located in the heart of the Stelvio National Park. The most famous starting point and bases for high alpine tours are the Rifugio Genziana, Rifugio Martello, Rifugio Gianni Casati, Rifugio Lyfialm and Rifugio Pizzini. If you prefer walks in lower altitudes can look forward to hiking down in the valley basin, or do a tour round Lake Gioveretto, which reflects the surrounding glaciers on its surface.

Moreover the Val Martello has got a tasty economic model for success to offer, which is the cultivation of strawberries. The advantage of the small cooperative is that the tasty mountain strawberries can be merchandised when the European harvest is already over, as the strawberries in this valley mature much later. Every year between June and July, there is also the famous Strawberry Festival, which includes the coronation of the strawberry queen und tastings.

And in winter? The Val Martello is also known for its cross-country skiing and biathlon centre, but there are also a multitude of possibilities for those who love snow-shoeing and ski touring, that is to say activities in a wonderful winter landscape.
