BORDER TOWN

The village

For those coming from the lower Val di Sole, Vermiglio is the last municipality of the valley. The town was a place “at the edge of the Kingdom” between Austrian-Hungarian territory and Italian territory. It is situated on the slopes of mount Boai and its economy is mainly based on animal breeding and the exploitation of timber resources; artisan entrepreneurship also plays a very important role. However, it is tourism - both winter and summer tourism - that represents an essential source of income. In fact, in addition to the sports and accommodation facilities at Vermiglio, there is a significant concentration of accommodation and ski facilities and service buildings at Passo del Tonale. .
The town of Vermiglio is actually the agglomeration of three villages: Fraviano, Cortina and Pizzano.

NORDIC SKIING, SKI TOURING, SNOWSHOEING

Winter sports

Over the years, Vermiglio has become one of Italy’s capitals for cross-country skiing and has hosted numerous national and international competitions. The Vermiglio Cross-country Ski Centre is the starting point of more than 20 km of wonderful groomed trails, famous in the whole of Trentino. Rings of various levels will keep both beginners and more expert skiers happy in this not-to-be-missed surreal atmosphere of peace and silence, amid snow-capped fir trees and deer footprints. What’s more, there are countless paths for a splendid ski touring or snowshoeing excursion.

HIKING, NORDIC WALKING, MOUNTAIN BIKE RIDING

Summer sports

Vermiglio also offers a wide choice of excursions and walks on the surrounding trails. Relaxing walks amid the quiet forest scenery will restore health to the body and mind; there are Nordic Walking paths as well as a number of itineraries, trails, forest roads and bridle paths suitable for mountain bike riding. You can even be so bold as to take the high-mountain alpine trails to reach the various huts or go up the ridges where the remains of the trenches are still visible and which afford breathtaking landscapes.
The small San Leonardo Lakes are appreciated by many as a destination for relaxing and quiet walks for adults and kids alike, and the presence of wild ducks and swans is a great add-on to the experience.

HISTORY

Forte Strino 

On the road that connects Vermiglio to Passo del Tonale, on the right, you will come upon Forte Strino. Strategically speaking, this is the most important fort among the fortifications and defensive structures (Forte Mero, Forte Zaccarana, etc.) that the Habsburg government commissioned between 1860 and 1912 to control the mountain pass to Italy. Built in 1861, the fort was extended and strengthened in 1906 with a guardhouse. Restored between 1993 and 1997, it is now the site of a permanent exhibition featuring a collection of WWI-related finds, documents and photographs.
