Excursion around Lake Morghirolo

Description

A beautiful excursion leading to Lake Morghirolo. The gently climbing path winds its way through flower-filled meadows and over rocky ground until reaching the quiet lake in its idyllic setting, where you may want to sit and relax for a while or explore its shores.

The excursion to Campo Tencia Hut starts in Dalpe, setting off through a cool, shady wood, then climbing consistently through various alpine pastures and past sparkling mountain streams until arriving at the hut.
It is well-worth finding out about the area around the hut, which is packed with activities to suit all tastes: walks and skiing, paths to other huts, climbing and lots of spots where visitors can enjoy everything the mountain has to offer. Check out the hut’s web page for some inspiration! The various options are described in detail under the different headings.
