Hike to the Monte Sole mountain hut

A beautiful circular walk leads us to the mountain huts of the Val di Rabbi valley in the Stelvio National Park: Malga Monte Sole, Malga Villar and Malga Cercen Bassa.

Located above the timberline, between the summits at the border of the Val di Pejo valley, the Monte Sole Mountain Hut can be found which offers numerous highlights. Here you can find a lawn for sunbathing, an outdoor sauna and exquisite organic dishes which are composed with own products by the inn keeper himself. The mountain hut is also accessible by car (the necessary permission is issued by the hut). Indeed we recommend a visit to the hut with an easy walk through the nature and alpine world of the Trentino. And in return for your efforts you can enjoy a delicious lunch at the hut!

Starting at the parking space we follow the forest road (to the right at a little bridge), which proceeds up until the mountain hut. It is also possible to follow the path next to the road, but this alternative is quite steep. At the Monte Sole mountain hut we follow the path uphill towards the Passo Cercen.

This mountain pass is a gorgeous viewpoint at the border between the Val di Rabbi and Val di Pejo valleys and can be reached in about 1.5 hours. On the pass we keep to the left and follow the forest path no. 109 back to our starting point, the Fontanon parking space.
