“A spectacular run along pristine alpine lakeshore in the shadow of Basòdino Glacier.”— Hunter R
On route, expect to see a host of alpine wildlife while traveling on the trail's smooth, well-maintained surface.
Continuing on singletrack, the trail traverses the lakeshore clockwise through beautiful alpine flora and glimmering crystalline bedrock to the southeastern corner. While on this leg of the journey, be sure to take a break, and appreciate the stunning turquoise waters of the Lago di Robiei, fed by the equally, if not more impressive, ribbons of ice cascading down the sculpted slopes of Basòdino Peak from its namesake glacier.
From here, the trail turns southeast as it begins a steady climb, switchbacking its way up and over a broad saddle to Bavona Creek on the opposite side. Follow the creek as it descends gently to the Capanna Basòdino, a rustic mountain hideaway providing lodging for serious mountaineers and wildlife enthusiasts alike.
After enjoying the Capanna Basòdino, finish your journey by regaining the broad path from before, and following it back to the cable car station.
