Hike to the Saènt Waterfalls in the Rabbi valley

The inner Rabbi valley in the Stelvio National Park is a paradise with larch forests and alpine meadows: the hike leads us to the famous Cascate di Saènt.

Our starting point is the parking space of Fontanelle where we start to the near Colér farm and walk past the tavern “Al Fontantin”. The wide forest road proceeds through the valley straight to the Stablasolo mountain hut (1,540 m asl.). Shortly afterwards the junction to the waterfalls “Cascate di Saènt” follows. We cross the bridge to the eastern side of the valley and walk up the waterfall path. At some spots we are really close to the natural spectacle, which consists of several consecutive waterfalls.

At the top end of the path we have to cross a bridge and reach the rest area “Dos dela Cros”. Following the marker no. 106 we walk through a wide hollow with wet meadows, surrounded by larch forests and rocky mountainsides of the Cima Sternai mountain. Here also the little hut “Pra de Saènt” is located. Here, at the foot of the path “Scalinata dei larici monumentali”, which proceeds to the ancient larches, we turn round and follow the marker no. 106 back to our starting point.

Attention: From June to the beginning of September, the Fontanelle - Colér parking space is closed from 9.45 am to 5 pm. The car can be parked in Plaze dei Forni, a shuttle service is operating to the parking space.
