UPCOMING TREKKING


SEPTEMBER 22nd - 23rd  2018

Unmissable event to celebrate the autumn equinox!

The sunset and sunrise are for photographers two key moments to capture the play of light and colors that nature offers. Even more important if they represent the moment of transition from one season to another - the farewell to the summer and the arrival of autumn - with all the symbolic meanings that the human being has always attributed to him.

The trek starts from Moggio following the path in the woods towards the Piani di Artavaggio where we climb the Cima di Piazzo to photograph the sunset that magnificently illuminates all the peaks, and then dine and stay overnight in a refuge.

The next morning we head instead to Mount Sodadura not to miss the sunrise at the summit where the spectacle of the sunrise leaves ecstatic and, even in this case, the gaze can range in all directions enjoying the magnificent panorama and meeting the profiles of the Resegone, le Grigne, Zuccone Campelli, Pizzo dei Tre Signori, Monte Aralalta and Pizzo Baciamorti.

After breakfast we will return to Moggio following the same path as the previous day.

This path is not particularly difficult even if in some places it has some rock steps to overcome, better if not the help of the sticks. The climb to the Cima di Piazzo is not particularly demanding, unlike the Monte Sodadura where the steep path along the ridge passes through the easy rocks, but a little exposed and then to be overcome carefully, and then continue up to the summit. As the ascent and descent from the mountains takes place at dusk, it is recommended to bring a frontal torch with you.

The program may undergo changes in the route in relation to weather conditions and requests from participants.

For organizational reasons reservations must be received within one week from the date of the trekking.

Maximum number of participants: five.

OCTOBER 20th 2018

The wonderful autumn colors of Val Varrone are an unmissable appointment for photographers. The magic of the foliage of the trees enchants thanks to an infinite chromatic variety that changes from day to day. And just the short duration of this beauty is to be preserved in a precious and unrepeatable shot.

The trek develops in a day along the Varrone stream starting from Premana and gradually rising surrounded by larch, beech and fir woods, gently illuminated by the morning sun, until it flows into the meadows that lead to Bocchetta di Trona with views of the Val Gerola and the Valtellina Alps.

The Bocchetta was the crossing point of the Via del Bitto that connected the Valtellina and the Lario valleys, but also a strategic point during invasions and wars so much that, just upstream of the Bocchetta stands a military fort built in 1917, l the only one still existing of the fortifications of the Cadorna Line.

From here you can reach the Inferno lake with the majestic scenery of the peaks that surround them and which are reflected in its waters. Lunch at Rifugio Falc (for those who want it) or packed lunch.

The return is planned for the same street, but this time to be illuminated is the southern slope of the valley.

Being a fairly long trek in which you make several photo stops, you need to leave early in the morning, also to catch in their splendor the tops of the trees in warm and intense colors touched by the rays of the sun.

The program may undergo changes in the route in relation to weather conditions and requests from participants.

Maximum number of participants: seven.
