Plan your trek
Via della Lana e della Seta is a 130 km route of medium difficulty that can be covered in 6 or more days by non-experts and families as well. The itinerary runs along CAI paths, marked with red and white posts and the Via’s logo. It develops on medium-mountain peaks that never exceed 1,000 metres asl. You need experience, skills and sense of direction, otherwise we recommend getting in touch with an expert guide. The path is open all year long, but particular attention must be paid during the winter period. The guidemap supplies specific technical information for each leg and makes is possible to tackle the itinerary by yourself. It reports the main sights, refreshments points and overnight stay options as well as alternative routes to discover even more places.
