Cozy atmosphere at Passo Sella

A little corner of tranquillity , a place with an incredible view over Sassolungo, Sassopiatto, the massif of Sella and Marmolada, a friendly and helpful staff. The place we’re talking about is a very small hut called “Fienile Monte”, and is well-known among the food lovers because of its selected ingredients, its sensational food and wine list and its location: it’s right on the slopes of the famous “Sellaronda” skitour, just a few steps away from the beautiful Gardena and Fassa valleys.

Just a few plates, prepared using premium quality ingredients and ancient alpine recipes: if you decide to stop here don’t forget to ask about “the special plates of the day” that won’t be on the menu but are usually incredibly good. If you’re a meat lover your palate will be surprised by the quality of their fillet steak, but if you’re a vegetarian don’t worry, there’s also plenty of options including truffle and veggies for gourmet plates that you won’t easily forget!

The atmosphere is cozy and informal, a romantic hut where the alpine elegance is at its best. Sheepskin, wood, leather and alpine design combined to give you a picture of what our “affordable luxury” idea is. The hut is open only during winter, and we suggest you to stop on their terrace  even just for a quick glass of excellent wine or a portion of the incredible Tiramisu that the chef prepares for you at the moment.

Just a few tables, so don’t forget to book in advance if you want to make sure you’ll get your gourmet experience. If you’re looking for a romantic adventure with your partner or your family, this hut is the perfect spot for a friday or a saturday night to remember: you can leave your car at Passo Sella and enjoy a snowcat transfer to the hut, or you can use your snowshoes to get there walking under the stars.

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.
