This itinerary will allow you to appreciate the two faces of the mountain between food and wine tourism and the pleasure of a walk to a refuge nestled in the mountains. The mountain today is precisely this, a suspended place where past and present touch, and where the progress of work and the passage of time seem to be slowed down in an extraordinary union with nature that surrounds human activities.
On the first evening we will pamper ourselves with a typical dinner at Ponte di Legno. The second day, we will go in search of a slow re-discovery of the mountain, along a path suitable for everyone that opens onto extraordinary landscapes. We will devote the morning to a visit to a hut where we will follow the supply chain of cheese and then, a couple of hours of walking to reach the shelter Bozzi where, we will have dinner and overnight. On the third day we will return to the valley through the picturesque Ercavallo lakes.
The "mastro casaro" of Malga Bezzi will explain us how the fresh and aged cheeses of “malga” were born, how they live and how they work in the mountains. An expedition of the CAI will lead us along the mule track that goes up to the refuge and Ercavallo lakes.
