The last village on the road from Trento to Passo del Tonale is Vermiglio, situated at 1.260 m a.s.l. It is formed by the four small villages of Cortina, Fraviano, Pizzano and Borgonuovo, which are now united in one locality.

Between Vermiglio and Passo del Tonale there is situated the recently restored Forte Strino Fortress, an important theatre of war during World War I. Also a museum located at Vermiglio is dedicated to the years of war in this mountain area.

The Tonale skiing resort is open both in winter and in summer, giving you the opportunity to ski from fall to spring on the Presena glacier. Modern cable cars serve the skiing area, which is also dotated by artificial snowmaker systems. At Stavel and Velon there are crouss-country slopes, both for professionals and for leisure. Vermiglio is also a starting point for hikes on the Presanella and on the Adamello Group.

In the summer time, Vermiglio is an ideal starting point for hikes across the Presanella mountains and to numerous mountain huts found all over the Adamello mountain chain.
