Hike to the Lago di Tret lake

This walking tour from San Felice in the Alta Val di Non valley to the Lago di Tret lake is suited for everybody.

Lake Tret – also called Lake Santa Maria – is located in the Alps of the Val di Non valley, at the point where South Tyrol and the Italian-speaking Trentino meet. Starting point of our walk is the Klammeben Parking Space above San Felice (St. Felix). There are several possibilities to reach the lake. We take the short route which leads us along a wide gravel road within about 45 minutes to our destination. The road proceeds through the forest and across larch meadows, by the wayside we watch various forest flowers and many butterflies.

Arrived at the lake, we visit the Waldruhe tavern which is well-known for its Kaiserschmarrn all over the area. This we don’t want to miss! After this perfect decision we have to burn calories. So we walk around the beautiful natural lake, fishes, dragonflies, aquatic plants and a small island make Lake Tret one of the most beautiful forest lakes of South Tyrol. By the way, also swimming and fishing (with permission) is possible!

We want to extend our way back to San Felice a bit, so we take the route via the Malga San Felice mountain hut (1,613 m a.s.l.). After about one hour walk we have arrived at our starting point again and take all the beautiful impressions of the gorgeous nature with the green forest lake back home.
