Winter hike to the Vigo mountain hut

Between Folgarida and Madonna di Campiglio, at the Piana delle Malghette Plain, the Vigo mountain hut is located, accessible from the Campo Carlo Magno Mountain Pass.

A true classic in the area of Madonna di Campiglio is the hike to the Malga Vigo alpine pasture. This excursion is well-suited also for families and can be done both in summer and in winter. The easy hike rewards with a gorgeous panoramic view on the Brenta Dolomites and an alpine landscape off the beaten track.

The mountain hut of the Malga Vigo pasture, which was renovated, does not only offer a superb local cuisine but also a meadow with deckchairs to enjoy the sun. Starting at the parking space of the Campo Carlo Magno Mountain Pass we walk along the state road towards Dimaro – Val di Sole a few hundred metres downhill.

The forest road towards the Malga Vigo branches to the left, it proceeds straight to the mountain hut. After a deserved break, we start our way back downhill along the ski slope and turn left to follow the path no. 201 back to the Campo Carlo Magno Pass again, our starting point. Attention – this route back is different and does not follow the forest road!
