Walking in the Puez-Odle Natural Park

Your walking tour in the Dolomites starts right from Selva di Val Gardena and winds for about 6 hours along the paths of the Natural Park Puez-Odle. Go up towards the Ciampac, stop to admire the spectacular scenery and then climb higher, to the Passo Crespeina, which offers a breathtaking view of the mountains around. From here go to the Passo Gardena, over 2000 meters high. Once you reach your destination, take the cable car Dantercepies and return to the Valley.

Walking on the Sella

The Sella Group has always been a favorite hiking trails around the Dolomites: the Lunar and crystalline landscapes, the lonely and enchanted atmosphere, the incredible views, make it a special destination. But be careful: you get to 3000 meters above sea level and you need to be in good physical condition to cope. Your walking trail starts at the Passo Pordoi. Here take the path that leads to Rifugio Cavazza Pisciadù. If you are brave enough, keep off your shoes and dip your feet into the frozen waters of the lake, a turquoise table that reflects the mountains to create a not to be missed sight. When you have enough of all this, return to the Passo Gardena trough the path 666.

Walking on the Sassolungo

Sassolungo is the undisputed king of Selva Val Gardena: a massive high and flat mountain that turns pink at sunset and offers unforgettable fairy-tale scenarios to those staying in Val Gardena. Start your Dolomites walking tour from the Monte Pana, reached by chairlift from Santa Cristina. Reach the base of the mountain and choose whether to head to the Refuge Demetz on foot, or Rifugio Vicenza by cable car. Enjoy an unparalleled view and then decide the way back on foot descending towards the Alpe di Siusi.
