The flowered meadows of the Lauco valley are an explosion of colours and scents. On these turfs of grass you are bound to stumble across the elder-flowered orchid with yellow and purple vivid colours or the Carniolan lily, a rather rare flower that can only be found on the Eastern Alps.



Lauco (Ud)

From Ovaro you reach the Lenzone hamlet and, past the village, you drive on for a few miles on an initially paved, then dirt road, up to the hut of the Arvenutis farm. Around three hundred metres beyond the hut, at a fork, you climb on the right to get over the hump and descend to the nearby hut of the Claupa Alpine farm.

Access to the malga: Average (farm accessible by four-wheel-drive vehicle)
