Andalo is located on the Paganella mountain west of the Adige valley a little north of Trento. The nearest railway station is Mezzocorona on the Munich-Brenner-Verona railway line. The Mezzocorona train station is about 15 km north of Trento. 10-15 minutes by train. Fast trains do not stop there. All trains stop in Trento.

There are two railway lines between Trento and Mezzocorona and two railway stations at Mezzocorona. The line FTM (Ferrovia Trento Malč) is NOT the correct one. If you arrive at Trento by train from the North or the South you should board the train to Mezzocorona at the same station where you arrived.

Participants arriving by train at Mezzocorona railway station on Thursday January 7 can use the Isodarco shuttle service from the station to the hotel. A minibus or a car with an Isodarco sign will be waiting outside the railway station. In case you will not find anyone, please call the hotel.
To better coordinate this shuttle transportation please let us know your traveling plans and your arrival time at Mezzocorona as soon as possible.

A similar shuttle service will operate on Thursday the 14th.

The closest airports to Andalo are Bolzano, Verona, Milan, Venice, Bologna, and Rome. From these airports one must reach Mezzocorona (Trento) by train.

On Thursday, January 7, a complimentary bus for Isodarco participants will leave (Milan) Malpensa airport at 3 p.m. and Linate airport at about 4:30 p.m. and arrive to Andalo around 8 p.m. in time for dinner.
Those interested should contact our secretariat ASAP to reserve a seat and obtain information on where to meet the bus.

On Thursday, January 14, our complimentary bus will leave Andalo at 6 a.m. and arrive to Malpensa airport around 10 a.m. and to Linate airport around 11 a.m. depending on the traffic conditions. This schedule is NOT compatible with most transatlantic flights leaving in the morning.

Participants unable to use the complimentary bus or shuttle must organize their transportation to and from the Hotel Gruppo Brenta.



FlySkiShuttle provides transportation between Andalo and the most convenient international airports. A new service with which we have little experience. Usually it does not operate on weekdays.
