Activities and services
– Mountain grazing is the uphill journey of the livestock to the Alpine pasture.
– It is recommended to check the website and social media profiles of the malga for updated activities and services.
Malga Moline is positioned in the heart of the grazing hollow of Busa Saline, surrounded by sparse larch and spruce forests. The grazing areas extend between Monte Cucco di Moline and Cima delle Saette, with clearings and sparse sections of pasture, connected to one another by small trails and mule tracks, some of which become Nordic skiing trails during the winter. The pastures are mainly scarce and require frequent interventions to limit the advancement of dwarf pine.
The many trails that connect the pastures are used for hiking and biking through the typical high elevation environment. During the Great War this area was used for storage and encampments for troops, and today the remains of these are still easily visible. The Fontana degli Alpini – one of the rare perennial springs in the entire area – is also nearby. From early autumn the area is popular with mushroomers.
In the Malga area is active “Rifugio Adriana” with various services and the possibility of overnight stay.

Do you want to have the best experience in the malga?
When you arrive at the malga, you’re entering the “home” of the malga operator population and their livestock: It’s a welcoming environment, rich with fascination, everything is to be discovered but also respected. Here are our recommendations for you!
The malga operator lifestyle is characterized by hardwork that starts before dawn and continues even after sundown. For example…Did you know that there two times set apart for milking? One before breakfast and another in the late afternoon.
Also, feel free to ask information but avoid going into work areas inaccessible to the public and be discrete: speaking too loudly may scare the livestock and disturb whomever is enjoying the peace of the mountain.
They are passive and docile animals but their size could put you in uncomfortable situations…or somewhat inappropriate behaviors could frighten them and provoke dangerous and unusual reactions.
It’s enough to maintain an adequate distance, avoid taking pictures from too close up, touching them, bothering them or looking them directly in the eye.
If you are with your dog, remember to keep it on a leash and under control.
When you find yourself near some cows, it’s better to avoid sudden movements, walk slowly and without getting anxious. And, if they were to get too close, distance yourself calmly and without turning your back to them!
