As you walk, run and observe its beautiful sights, Val di Rabbi invites you keep its air clean and its valley peaceful. Leave your car outside the Stelvio National Park and take part in the Stelviobus Rabbi project: From 24th June to 10th September 2023, from 9.45 am to 5.00 pm, you can only access the valley on foot, by bike or in the shuttle buses (unless otherwise authorised). Before and after the park closes to traffic, you can drive to the Coler car park (via Somrabbi). The park provides free car parking in Plazze dei Forni and a shuttle bus will take you to the Còler car park, the start for lots of excursion trails.

Here are some tips...
Easy: 1h15 approx. Line 1
From the parking area, an easy path leads along the valley floor along the Rabbies stream to Còler. The route first crosses the playground, continues near the green wetland, reaching the old Venetian sawmill of the Bègoi. From here, avoiding the dusty transit way of the buses, you can walk uphill the path that skirts the foaming waters of the turrent, up to the plain of Còler. The path can be naturally walked downhill, in the opposite direction, after the ascent with the Stelviobus!
Easy: 1h30 approx. Line 1 - Plan stop
From the entrance of the camper parking area, a flat path leads alongside the Rabbies stream to a bridge over the Ragaiolo stream. From here, the Suspended Bridge can be reached in two different ways: from the stairs in the woods on the left, or the forest road on the right. On the way back you can pass by the Malga Fratte and then by the Bègoi Venetian sawmill.
Medium - easy: 3h approx. Line 3 - Fontanon stop
After the ascent that leads to Malga Monte Sole Alta, a pleasant uphill and downhill trail leads through the Monte Sole, Fassa, Villar and Malga Cércen.
Medium - easy: 3h00 approx. Line 1 - Còler stop
From the Còler area you can reach Malga Stalblasolo, and from there walk along the Alta Via delle Malghe path to reach, with a gradual ascent, the Malga Maleda Bassa. From here you can walk uphill to the Malga Maleda Alta or return on foot to Còler.
Medium - easy: 2h approx. Line 1 - Còler stop
The path on the orographic left gradually climbs up to the base of the waterfalls and then becomes steeper on the way to the wooden bridge on the two great waterfalls. Afterwards, the path goes downhill, following the orographic right, passing through the Visitor Centre of the Malga Stablét.
All the forest roads are easy to cycle on mountain bikes and almost always lead to somewhere selling refreshments.
You can also recharge your e-bike at many of these refreshments points.
For wheelchairs and pushchairs, we recommend the scenic stretch from Plazze dei Forni to the Bègoi Venetian Sawmill.
