Snowshoeing in Val di Funes

There’s a place, a hidden valley surrounded by incredibly beautiful mountains, where…..

Where the winter scenery, the snow-covered forests and high-altitude meadows can show you how Paradise looks like. An unspoiled corner of alpine nature! Today we’ve put our snowshoes on and we have followed the so called Adolf Munkel Trail, which runs below the Odle/Geisler Mountains, and is one of the most spectacular trails in the Dolomites.

The trail starts at the parking area in Zannes/Zans, at the end of the Valley, the number of the trail is 6 and you’ll have to follow this number until you reach the bridge. We turned right there, and then followed signs to Adolf Munkel Weg, trail n. 35, until we got to the Gschnagenhardtalm alpine pasture (recommended) and the Geislerhütte mountain hut. Here you can enjoy what the locals call the “Geisler Cinema”, an area where the spectacular mountains offer incredible views that you can enjoy from the comfort of a sunbed and its sheepskin. We continued along Trail n. 36 to the Dussler Alm alpine pasture and then went back to Zannes hut for the best slice of Strudel cake of our life. Food and drink is served at all huts, but opening days and times may vary, so please check with the locals before you start your hiking adventure and bring some water and food to get some energy during the day.

4 hours return for an average hiker.


Horse-drawn carriage in Wonderland

Clanging bells, an incredible view, a stunning alpine scenery dressed with its soft, white blanket. A romantic trip for two, or  for families that want to make adults and kids happy and relaxed: in the Dolomites this is the experience you can’t miss during winter, especially in a place like this pasture where cars are not allowed and Nature is the Queen.

A memory to cherish, a moment of “affordable luxury”, the way we call it.

Our partners can take you to best huts of the area for the most incredible lunch you’ve ever had, but they can also arrange small trips of half an hour for you to take pictures or enjoy the fresh air.

Let yourself be carried away by a peaceful landscape, listening to the relaxing sound of the bells and the hooves of the horses….

Prices: from 30 euros up to 130 euros, depending on the length of the trip.

Sellaronda ski tour

Whether you are an excellent skier or just a mountain lover that loves taking pictures moving around with the skis, you’ll absolutely love this ski tour.

We’re talking about a circuit on skis around the Sella massif, an average of 26km of downhill runs that you can ski clockwise or anti clockwise, discovering the beauty of four wonderful Dolomites’ passes: Sella, Gardena, Campolongo and Pordoi. The spots where you can start from are innumerable, exactly like the slopes that you’ll find all around the circuit: some of these are famous all over the world, like the breathtaking Gran Risa leading you to the lovely town of La Villa or the challenging Saslong a few steps from the little village of Santa Cristina.

The landscape will change and surprise you around every single corner, giving you the feeling of a unique experience.

Let’s not forget to mention the gourmet-huts you’ll find all along the route: homemade pasta with truffle, fresh fish, organic meat, an ancient tradition of homemade cakes, carefully baked using the best ingredients.

Any skier interested in this ski tour must be fit and must carry the proper ski gear, even if the runs themselves are middling difficulty rather than advanced. We also suggest that our guests start no later than 10am and reach the last pass at 3:30pm so that they won’t miss the last ski-lifts.

For further information and suggestions about the slopes, about the best spots for a comfort tea or an unforgettable lunch, do not hesitate to send us an email or to give us a call.
