The Guide of Adamello Park

Guida del Parco dell’Adamello

The extraordinary landscapes of the Parco dell’Adamello can be fully admired only by going along the numerous paths present in its territory.
Changes and diversities of the environments of the protected area, result in an altitudinal excursion of over 3000 meters between the minimal height of the Park and the summit of Mount Adamello (3539 meters a.s.l.), granting our territory with naturalistic features of rare beauty.
Rural areas, agricultural landscapes, forests of broad-leaves and conifers, bushes and alpine prairies, screes, bold walls, permanent glaciers: these are the landscapes of the Park, the prefered habitats of numerous vegetal and animal species, the sceneries of culture and history, in which the first world war was fought.
In the Parco dell’Adamello, human stories have connected – and still do – with natural environment. This two way exchange has given us rock art, rural landscapes built by man, evidence of the White War, paths drawn in the mountains since the beginining of the 1800, when the Adamello’s alpine exploration began.
This publication was done aiming at reaching every user of the Park, guiding them to the discovery of its natural beauties, its culture, its people.
Turistic activities, when done in a compatible way with environmental protection, can be occasions of cultural growth and economical development to mountain people. The guide describes several itineraries, capable of satisfying any type of excursion, even beyond the most common paths.
Making knowledge and research materials about naturalistic and historical features of the Parco dell’Adamello is one of the first goals of the protected area, that seeks to be always more an istrument of social and economical growth for the local population. From 1983 to nowadays much has been done to approach the Park to those that live in it.
We are certain that every contribution to the dissemination and promotion of the protected area is a step forward towards knowing that protection and development are, today, two essential realities.
