Hike to the Corvo Lakes

For hundreds of years the ancient path across the Passo di Rabbi pass has been connecting the two valleys Val di Rabbi in the Trentino and Val d’Ultimo in South Tyrol, there also the Laghi Corvo Lake District is located.

The impressive mountain world, several clear mountain lakes, the blooming alpine meadows, whistling marmots and unforgettable views make this hike a true experience. The beautiful Laghi Corvo lakes are located near the Passo di Rabbi, a mountain pass which connects the Val di Rabbi in the Trentino with the Val d’Ultimo in South Tyrol. The lake district was formed by glaciers.

Starting point of our hike is the Cavallar parking space above the village of San Bernardo in the Val di Rabbi valley. The path no. 108 proceeds steeply uphill straight to the Rif. Stella Alpina al Lago Corvo mountain hut. An alternative route is to follow the forest path up to 2,000 m asl., to the Malga Caldesa Alta mountain hut and take then path no. 135 towards the Rif. Stella Alpina. This version is less steep but longer (approx. 3 km more).

The panoramic view from the Rif. Stella Alpina stretches across the entire Val di Rabbi until the Brenta Dolomites and the peaks of the Val di Peio. From here it takes us about 10 minutes to reach the Big Lake Corvo and the other smaller lakes, strung like pearls. The whole area is part of the Stelvio National Park.
