Great glacier Adamello crossing in italy – alpine mountaineering from hut to hut
Adamello glacier Italy – The Adamello National Park is the largest glacier in Italy and larger than the one of Mont Blanc. Unlike the Brenta-Dolomites Italy which are of sedimentary origin, the mountains in the Adamello Group Italy have a volcanic background. The glaciers extend over large areas and the rock is composed of smooth, magnificent white granite plaques. The Italian and Austrian soldiers fought for three long winters on these rugged mountains. Sometimes the eternal ice releases soldiers bodies and their weapons. During our trekkings from hut to hut or from lodge to lodge we almost always find unexploded bombs and many remnants of the WWI. It is a prerequisite have a good physical condition as well as mountaineering experience, if you want to conquer these wild mountains. The duration of our routes from hut to hut or from lodge to lodge depends on weather conditions: fog, snow and crevasses may slow the march but the worst thing is the lack of preparation of the participants in our trekking and hiking trips.
