Giro delle cime

Tenno, Comano, Riva del Garda, Ledro

Duration in hours
Distance in km
Suggested period

Pichea, Tofino, Doss de la Torta, Gavardina, Corno dei Guì, Corno di Lomar, Roda, Cadria. In Valle di Ledro, if someone talks about the ‘Giro delle cime’ (i.e. Tour of the Mountain Tops), these are the mountains that come to mind, the highest in the valley.

Very demanding route along the mountain tops which surround Val Concei like a crown. Above 2000 m all vegetation gives way to grassland and the eye is free to roam around. To the West is the Adamello, to the North the Brenta group, whereas Valle di Ledro unfolds to the South. Breathtaking landscapes for an unforgettable experience.

The best time to do this tour is on clear days, so as to enjoy the views to the fullest! Each mountain has its story and its identity. Mount Cadria, with its 2.254 m, is the highest mountain in Valle di Ledro. According to local legends Mount Gavardina is home to an enchanted being who watches over the valley, a fairy called Gavardina.

Safety guidelines

Safety Tips

  1. Choose itineraries that suit your physical and technical abilities. Collect information about the area you are visiting and the trail’s conditions and get a detailed trekking map.
  2. Wear clothes and take equipment that suit the difficulty and length of your tour. Keep emergency gear in your rucksack, including first aid supplies.
  3. Do not go walking alone in the mountains. In any case, tell someone where you are going and report back on returning.
  4. Look at the weather forecast before setting off and always keep an eye on the weather.
  5. In case of doubt, go back. It is better to give up than risk bad weather or face difficulties beyond your strength, ability and equipment.
  6. Do not leave marked paths and do not take shortcuts.
  7. All described walks are in a natural environment and therefore their use is at your own risk.

This information is subject to inevitable variations, so none of these indications are absolute. It is not entirely possible to avoid giving inexact or imprecise information, given how quickly environmental and weather conditions can change. For this reason, we decline any responsibility for changes which the user may encounter. In any case, it is advisable to check environment and weather conditions before setting out.

Caution! The stretch between Monte Cadria and Malga Cadria is particularly exposed (EEA: For experienced hikers only).

Continue along the SAT 420 path towards Corno di Pichea and Monte Tofino, reach the Bocchetta dei Slavazì and turn into the SAT 455 path shortly before Doss de la Torta. Keep on the SAT 455 path towards Monte Gavardina, walk downhill to Bocca dell’Ussol and then uphill towards Corno di Guil, Corno di Lomar and Roda. After Bocca dei Tortavai, the last uphill stretch leads to the top of Monte Cadria, the roof of Valle di Ledro.

Once back in the valley, follow the asphalt road from the locality Ex-Centrale to Vedravì, turn left towards Rifugio al Faggio and then right (the signpost reads ‘Piste sci da fondo’) to get into the Val Sorda. Walk through the valley in order to reach Perigol, the starting point.

Where to park

Free park in the locality of Perigol.

You need to wear the right clothing and take the proper gear when you go hiking in the mountains. Even on relatively short easy outings make sure to take all you need so you don't run into trouble if things take an unexpected turn, for example a storm blows up or you have a sudden drop in energy levels.

What should you take when you go on a hike?

Your rucksack (for a day trip a 25/30L capacity should do) should contain:

  • water canteen (1L)
  • snacks (e.g. mixed dried fruit or chocolate)
  • First aid kit
  • windproof jacket
  • fleece
  • change of t-shirt and socks (in a plastic bag)
  • make sure to wear or at least bring a pair of long trousers
  • hat
  • sun screen
  • sunglasses
  • gloves
  • whistle to attract attention in an emergency


Make sure you're wearing the right footwear for the trail and season. The going can get rough and rocky underfoot and a pair of hiking boots will protect you from sprains. When wet, a grassy slope, rocky slab or steep trail can be dangerous unless you are wearing the proper footwear.

And finally... don't forget to bring your camera! You'll need it to capture the stunning views you come across all over Garda Trentino. And if you like, you can share your memories with us at #GardaTrentino.
