Image gallery: Gruppo delle Maddalene
The Catena delle Maddalene is a coronoid mountain range which is bounded by the Val d’Ultimo in the north and the Passo Palade in the east. In the south the Gruppo delle Maddalene is bounded by the Valle di Non and Val di Sole, in the west, by the Passo di Rabbi.
Characteristic for the Gruppo delle Maddalene are soft hills and mountains displaying a height of less than 2,700 metres. There is no mass tourism and the nature is still intact. This area is especially impressive in the period of blossom. The Gruppo delle Maddalene is situated about 10 km from Cles, main locality of the Valle di Non.
The Catena delle Maddalene is perfect for hikes and trekking. The two main paths which cross the Catena delle Maddalene are the “Sentiero Bonacossa”, which leads from the Passo Palade to the Valle dei Rabbi, as well as the “Sentiero Italia”, a long-distance hiking trail of more than 6,000 km, which runs in more than 300 daily stages through the whole of Italy.
