Val di Rabbi
Val di Rabbi can offer you unforgettable experiences all year long
The Val di Rabbi is an alpine valley of exceptional natural value, a refuge where the desire for rest and fun in contact with nature finds solace.
The valley is located laterally to the Val di Sole and is crossed by the Rabbies Stream. Near Malè, it joins the Noce River, famous for rafting. The valley runs parallel to the Val di Pejo and is separated from it by the mountain chain of Cima Rossa-Vegaia-Tremenesca-Camocina, while the opposite side borders the Val di Bresimo in Val di Non and the South Tyrolean valleys of Val Martello and Ultental. The mountains of the Val di Rabbi are all part of the Ortler-Cevedale Group.
The Val di Rabbi has been known since ancient times for its underground source with reddish water, rich in therapeutic properties, so much so that it has passed into history as the “natural elixir“. Even today, it is a sought-after destination for tourists seeking physical and mental well-being, as well as winter sports enthusiasts, mountain bikers, hikers, and climbers who come here to fulfill their desires.
The Val di Rabbi is among the most characteristic environments in terms of natural landscape in the entire province of Trento and, for this reason, it has been included in the Stelvio National Park. It is a geographical crossroads of deep valleys that come together to form a mosaic, with stone curtains and monumental larch trees, springs, glaciers, and snowfields, which serve as natural reservoirs for the streams that run along the mountainsides and through the valley floor. The water creates paths of extraordinary beauty on the rocky walls, and the flow of the streams accompanies hikers along the trails that wind through coniferous forests: transparent, foamy ribbons traversing green clearings, silent forests, and narrow passages carved into the rock.
The uniqueness of this valley lies in its ability to maintain a natural and ancient appearance, sometimes still wild. As you travel through it, you will come across numerous scattered hamlets, each composed of a few houses, many of which have retained their rustic appearance. Wherever you look in the Val di Rabbi, you will find the perfect harmony between humans and the environment.
