Carega is the mountain par excellence of the Veronese region. Follow the path 108 of the Costa Media also known as that of the ridges. It is a path that in many places is challenging due to the difference in altitude that covers a few meters, but which once reached the altitude allows you to enjoy a splendid view. Once you have climbed from the Vallone del Malera, turn right to reach the Passo Malera and from there continue, crossing first the Bella Lasta area and then the wood that overlooks the Revolto area. On the path you will find the old boundary stone between the Lombardy and Veneto Kingdom and finally you will come out in just over 1 hour at the Pertica Pass where there is the homonymous refuge. Leaving the refuge behind, continue on the normal route. At the first turn, do not take the classic shortcut but stay on the normal road, you will come to a second fork that turns right. There you will see that a path with wire ropes also starts on the curve. Continue on the road and after about 10 meters from the hairpin bend you will find the indication of the path n ° 108 Costa Media which in 2h takes you to the Fraccaroli Refuge. From this refuge you can reach the nearby summit, Cima Carega at 2259m. To go back, always take path 108B, passing the Pertica Pass and up again towards Malera with path 287 that takes you back to San Giorgio. We recommend leaving early in the morning because the Carega sun is very powerful.Show more

Are you looking for a good opportunity to escape the city heat in search of a bit of refreshment and maybe even succeed in a pleasant walk with a meal in a typical Refuge? Well then this simple itinerary is right for you. It is a short and simple 1h30 loop starting in San Giorgio. You will stop at the new Malera refuge, formerly Malera di sotto. It can be reached by car in about 20 minutes and also feasible with a stroller. You can park your car at the large square of San Giorgio and start climbing the Vallone del Malera along the baby ski slope. Show more

This short walk can be done in winter with snowshoes in the snow and in summer offers panoramic views of rare beauty and in mid-June the fine and pleasant scents of white flowers and elderberry. Beautiful excursion to do alone for an intense workout or in company even with the family for a day in the open air. Leave the car at the first car park in San Giorgio and then head south-east along an unpaved driveway (path 250 - 13) and continue until just beyond the new Malera hut (Malga Malera di Sotto). Here you turn left along the uphill path known as N. 13. Always go up along an obvious path until you cross the path that comes from the Vallone and continue up to Passo Malera. Once you reach Passo Malera, continue a little on the most trodden route and if you want, you can approach the path of the ridges, along which, after clear traces of trenches from the First World War and caves used as a refuge at the time, continue up to Cima Trappola, the highest peak of the Lessini (1865 meters). Along this one can find stones that testify that the Lessini were covered with sea water millions of years ago. From Cima Trappola you can enjoy a magnificent view both towards the Carega group and towards the Lessini plateau and the Baldo. The descent is steep for the first part and then simple and easy. You pass alongside the “Buco del Vallone” a karst chasm about 50 meters deep, with old artificial caverns on the higher sides. The walk ends on the side of the ski slope. This is a very beautiful tour all year round, demanding with its variations of difficulty and wonderful for the panorama. You will feel like you are in the remote mountains where you can hardly walk on the crests of the peaks and instead you are only 40 km from Verona.Show more

From Bocca di Selva, for Folignani huts, Vajo delle Ortiche, ref. Podesteria and return to Monte Tomba. Average travel time: 5h 30m with abundant breaks We started in 5 from Bocca di Selva, and at the beginning it was understood that the day would be challenging. The road in fact to get to Bocca di Selva was already covered with snow and in some places the car slipped, after a while we finally managed to reach the parking lot anyway. (We had to pay a good € 2 to park). Arrived we went to rent snowshoes (sooner or later I will buy them) and we started following the beaten path. The snow fell silent and the fog that rose slowly from below, combined with the extreme calm (there was no one on the track) created an atmosphere of peace and wonderful calm. At the junction with the pedestrian path to Monte Tomba we continued westward on the road to the Folignani mountain huts, a choice that few people made before us given the few traces left. Downhill we followed the snow-covered path up to the Folignani di Sotto hut, we pulled straight up to the Malga Folignani di Fondo where we stopped for a while to refresh ourselves. Broken down, after about fifteen minutes we arrived at the bottom of the junction of the vajo where we took the road to the Rifugio Podestaria in a north-eastern direction. Here things started to get complicated, it was snowing abundantly, the snow accumulated on the bottom of the vajo was a lot and the few people passed before us with snowshoes had traced the path only superficially, at each step we sank at least 30 cm. At one point, out of pure curiosity, I even removed my snowshoes and sank into the snow to life. The landscape of the vajo, however, was wonderful, the silence, the trees full of snow, the mist rising, the atmosphere was magical and helped to forget the fatigue. In the end we came out of the woods and we started the slow climb to reach the shelter, slow and difficult because here the track was even less marked and it sank a lot. Here is finally the end of the path, and we arrive at the Podestaria Refuge where, the only customers, we allowed ourselves a loooong long pause. After eating and rested we decide to go back to the cars passing by the usual beaten path that connects the Podesteria with Bocca di Selva, except that in the meantime a very thick fog has risen, it snows abundantly with a lot of wind, visibility was reduced to less than five meters and in fact in these conditions it was easy for us to miss the path and we found ourselves under the Monte Tomba behind the cross-country track. At this point we considered it more prudent to continue on the track, easier to follow and above all because, being closed due to snow, it still had to be replied and we did not risk ruining it. In the end we arrived at the tired but very happy machines of the ride done. I recommend this tour to those who have a bit of athletic preparation and especially if it is snowing with a good sense of orientation.Show more

Leaving Saturday afternoon at 2.30 pm from the jungle, as soon as we arrived we saw, in addition to the parking lot full of cars, the excellent landscape of the snow-covered lessinia .. Let's go immediately to rent the ciapsole for 6 € (with sticks 7.5 €). When you get out of the car you immediately feel the stinging wind that forces everyone to cover themselves very well, this wind is a constant in Bocca di Selva but as soon as you get to Monte Tomba you can no longer hear it. Let's start, on the left a comfortable and very marked path takes us slightly downhill towards the Folignano huts, the path is very well beaten, the compact and very dry snow allows an optimal walk with snowshoes. We feel brave and try a little off the track, holding the path to the left we continue on the snow which, well frozen, allows us to move forward without too much effort. We arrive first at the crossroads with the cross-country track in front of Mount Tomba, and after another couple of km we finally arrive at the Podesteria Refuge which in truth was about to close (it was 4.30pm) but seeing us arrive he waited a while to refresh us ( a gentleman!!). We drink a hot chocolate, a slice of cake for the sweet tooth and off we go back, also because the darkness is approaching. To hurry, we decide to follow the cross-country ski track on the outer side for the first part of the way up to the mountain tomb (the original route was to stop at the first snow shelter but it was too late), the night progresses but a slice of moon and the snow that reflects the light allows you to walk safely. Arrived at the height of Mount Tomba we take to the right the path traveled to the first leg to return to Bocca di Selva. Snowshoeing is easy and we arrive without problems at 6pm to return the snowshoes, with the renter's cazziatone who had to close at 5.00pm but he never warned us.Show more
