The extensive glaciers of the Stelvio National Park are always moving and have shaped the area’s fascinating landscape for centuries. The Ortles group is a massif of approximately 50 km in length and with almost 100 glaciers. The Ortles (3,905 m above sea level) is the highest and most impressive peak of all.

Hikers aiming for King Ortles or the Cevedale mountain must conquer glacial crevasses, pass through moraine fields and navigate hefty icefalls. Less experienced mountaineers can experience the world of ice and snow from the Solda Glacier Road or the Glacier Educational Trail in Martello.
