Adamello Brenta Natural Park

Listen to the deer’s bellow in the nocturnal quietness of the Adamello Brenta Natural Park’s forests

At the beginning of the last century Guido Castelli, a naturalist from Trentino, wrote that “when the deer is in love shouts, roars, thunders, hisses”. Four verbs to describe the deer’s bellow, one of the most exciting natural sounds to human knowledge: a mysterious and unforgettable wild signal.


At 6.30 pm guests will be welcomed at Prà de la Casa (Sant’Antonio di Mavignola – Tn) with a tasting of local products. A scientific presentation and an excursion with the Park’s guide will follow. During the excursion the guests will have the opportunity to use a thermal camera to see the infrared radiation emitted by animals. This tool will allow the guests to see in the darkness the forests life by showing images that reveal the life habits of deers and of other inhabitants of the night. The return is scheduled at 10.30/11 pm.


We will go in search of this exciting wild signal walking through the suggestive Val Brenta, Vallesinella or Valagola, following the movements of male deers. While ascending from Sant’Antonio di Mavignola towards Madonna di Campiglio, the great dolomitic amphitheatre that encloses the Val Brenta suddenly appears to us. It is one of the most picturesque alpine scenery that can be admired in the Adamello Brenta Natural Park: countless and celebrated mountain peaks rise above the scree, the cliffs and the dense forest that covers the lower part of the valley. Val Brenta, once the main access to the heart of the Dolomites, is separated from Vallesinella by the Costa del Gras d’ Oven and from Valagola by the Fracingli mountain group.
