A walk in Valpiana, this enchanting relaxing location in Val di Sole. 
This pleasant walk will bring you to Valpiana, with its malgas or farmhouses, pastures and panoramic spots. The sky in Valpiana and in particular at Malga del Dosso has been declared by Astronomitaly one of the most beautiful skies in Italy for star gazing.


This route is part of the Uno Di Un Milione project. Here, through the QR codes on the original water bottles and the dedicated app, you can take part in an experience of art, relation and participation that will help you explore the water running through Val di Sole, discovering how the community in this valley has creatively imagined its own vision of protection for the environment and future generations.

Safety information

The 10 rules for walking in the mountains: 
  1. the feasibility of routes in a mountain environment is closely linked to the contingent conditions and therefore depends on natural phenomena, changes in the environment and the weather conditions. For this reason, make sure you are well informed about the route and conditions before setting out. You can do this by contacting your nearest Information Office;
  2. if you expect to reach a malga or mountain refuge, make sure that this will be open and, if you intend to stop to eat or sleep, call beforehand to book;
  3. leave information about your route with someone and always take your mobile phone with you;
  4. in the event of an accident, call 112;
  5. never leave litter in the mountains and, if possible, avoid leaving your rubbish at mountain refuges or malgas that you visit;
  6. if you spot wild animals along the way, we invite you to stay on the path, not go too near, not shout and to keep your dog on a lead, to stop it instinctively chasing and scaring the animal;
  7. face masks must also be worn in the mountains;
  8. keep a distance of at least 2 metres between you and other people;
  9. avoid sharing personal effects, instruments and water bottles with other people;
  10. take hand sanitiser with you and frequently disinfect your hands and surfaces.

Starting point



Close to the first hairpin on the road that from Ossana goes up to Valpiana, take the ‘sentiero de la lec’ or lake trail that in 30 minutes brings you to Valpiana, after a luxuriant enchanting wood of fir trees.

Valpiana (1,221 m asl) can also be reached by car from Ossana. Continue along the forest road through the wide valley, alongside the River Foce. Once you get to Malga Valpiana (1,311 m) you continue along the path for the “Sas Pisador” Waterfall and the nearby rock climbing wall. At the fork with the path for Bivacco “Jack Canali”, keep to the right and make your way back to Valpiana, in this way completing an interesting circular route.

In Valpiana there is also Malga del Dosso, accessible in about an hour and 45 minutes along an easy unmade track that you pick up immediately after the niche to Saint Anthony. From here you can enjoy splendid views of Val di Pejo. Return along the same route

Public transportation

Public transport: You can reach the town of Ossana with the TRENTO-MALÉ- MARILLEVA train (download train times out and back), to the Mezzana stop. In Mezzana, take the bus for Vermiglio (download bus out and back) and after five stops, get off in Ossana. Valpiana is about thirty minutes on foot from the bus stop.

How to get there

Take the S.S. 42 state road to Ossana and, once past the church of Santa Maria Maddalena, take the left-hand fork along the S.P. 202 provincial road. Follow this road for about a kilometre and park near the church, continuing on foot. Alternatively, you can reach Valpiana, following the directions at the crossroads.

Where to park

You can park close to the church in Ossana and from there take the path that will bring you to Valpiana. If you drive to Valpiana, park there and continue on foot.
For this walk we recommend hiking boots and a cap, with a waterproof jacket, sun cream and a bottle of water in your backpack. Remember your camera or mobile phone for immortalising the views and favourite sights. If you like, you can then share them on social media at the hashtags #visitvaldisole and #spazioaltuotempo.
