Set out on a journey by cable car or chair lift, touching the branches of the trees, and let your soul open wide before infinity. A holiday in the mountains starts from up high, from the emotions of reaching boundless landscapes in uncontaminated spaces, far from car traffic and pollution. Some prefer walking up steep climbs to deeper enjoy the pleasure of watching nature from a higher point of view. However, the local lift facilities allow anyone to reach high altitude panoramas and walking paths leading to enchanting places. Easy routes, even suitable for children, are to be found up in the mountains, but also wide terraces in the sun, next to the refuges, where to sit and taste the wholesome products of the local cuisine, very simple and yet amazing.
Val di Fiemme invites you to explore new spaces in the sky with its “Free 360 degree panorama” special offer *, proposing from June, 15th to August, 4th 2013 and from September, 1st till the end of season, cable car and chair lift journeys at no cost, to experience the most thrilling panoramas.
All Val di Fiemme hotels, joining the “Free 360 DEGREE PANORAMA” project, propose panoramic excursions across fir forests to reach the starting places of further free walks, organized by the mountain guides, who will lead you to the discovery of alpine lakes, Dolomite peaks, blossoming pasturelands and rocks marked by the passage of the sea. Many slopes across the green, suitable for excurionists or MTB riders, depart from the mountain tops.
For children’s entertainment, magic fun parks are located near the refuges, like
- “CERMISLANDIA” and “Animal farm”, on Alpe Cermis
- “The Realm of the Dragons” and the “ALPINE COASTER Gardoné Sleigh Lift”, on Latemar
- With a bit of luck, you may have the chance to meet squirrels, deers and roe bucks along the paths winding from Bellamonte and Alpe Lusia through the PANEVEGGIO Pale di San Martino NATURE PARK.
Enjoy different views every day: the 360 degree panorama from Paion del Cermis, the view on the Dolomites of Catinaccio from Lavazé-Occlini Pass or on Pale di San Martino, from the Lusia refuge, turning pink at sunrise and red at sunset and, last but not least, the scenery from the refuge at Passo Feudo, embracing the Alps, Marmolada, mount Civetta and Pelmo, Pale di San Martino, the Lagorai chain, Adamello and Brenta and the Austrian Alps.

The Latemar lift facilities departing from Predazzo rise up to the Gardoné refuge, where from a terrace in the sun, lying on deckchairs and chaises longues, one may admire the view on the ocean of mountains of the Lagorai chain. The refuge cuisine proposes “Penne Baita Gardoné” with fresh tomato sauce, rocket and cheese, then pork chops and a delicious dessert named “Riviera”.
Near the refuge is one of the most entertaining attractions in the Dolomites: the t is a sledge roller coaster for crazy descents across the forest along a kilometre of jumps, bends and parabolas among the trees. While the young have fun in the sand playing beach volley, smaller children enjoy the pistes for Tubby inflatables, the “Realm of Dragons” playground, the kindergarten and fanciful entertainment. MTB lovers may explore the Route of the Spirits across the wood, a trail also suitable for kids (Latemar, Obereggen, Carezza Lake, Moena, Predazzo).
A chair lift carries up to refuge Passo Feudo (2,175 m) where the view embraces the Alps, mounts Marmolada, Civetta, Pelmo, Pale di San Martino, the Lagorai chain, Adamello, Brenta and the Austrian Alps.
The local cuisine, simple but refined, amazes the palate with its creative menu proposing, for example, purple ravioli with blueberries.
Many itineraries depart from the refuge, such as the Dolomite Geological Route, to find out the marks left by the sea, and the trail leading to the so-called Torre di Pisa, one of the most mysterious rock sculptures across the Dolomites. At the refuge Torre di Pisa (2,672 m a.s.l.) it is also possible to stay overnight and watch the sunrise painting the Dolomites pink.
The Latemar mountain guides are available for free suggestive itineraries in the area.
Alpe di Pampeago
The Latemar chair lift departing from Pampeago brings up to the Zischgalm refuge, with its tasty shepherd’s macaroni, polenta, goulasch, canederli, strudel and homemade cakes, and to the Ganischgeralm refuge, renown for its Trentino and Southtyrolean specialties: spinach tortelloni, doughnuts, apple fritters, omelettes.
Many excursions lead from here to Obereggen and Feudo Pass to admire the southern side of Marmolada, the Cima Uomo and the peaks of Costabella, Antelao, Pelmo, Civetta, Pale di San Martino, the Lagorai chain, Brenta and Ortles.
The Pala Santa tour, reaching the Pampeago and Lavazé passes opposite the Latemar group, is simply stunning. Cima di Santa stretches out like a wide grassy gentle slope, inhabited by partridges and chamois and watched over by ravens.
A panoramic view on Val di Fiemme can be admired from the cross of Mount Cornon, past Mount Agnello.
The creeping mugho pine invades the upper Cornon, accessible from Alpe di Pampeago via a dirt road. The track climbs up to Porta, then follows along the ridge and proceeds at high altitude in an alpine environment of suggestive solitude, not so rarely crossed by eagles in flight.
Further ups and downs bring to the Dos dai Branchi or ‘Baranci’ (which means mugho pine in the local dialect), then to the Cornacci dominating the town of Tesero and offering an overall view on the middle and lower Val di Fiemme and the Lagorai chain. From the saddle before the Cornacci, the descent rapidly directs towards Stava, along the Val del Slavin, crossing ancient grassy spaces rich in blueberries and mixed conifers, from which the black grouse raises up loud its courtship songs.
Panoramic telpher cars of latest generation reach Alpe Cermis. The first stop during the silent journey across the top of the trees is Doss dei Laresi (1,276 m a.s.l.), with its cosy refuge proposing a tasty woodman dish consisting of polenta, cheese and sausages or mixed grill.
On a wide meadow, in front of the refuge, the magic realm of CERMISLANDIA spreads out with its water games and many attractions for children. The kindergarten staff entertain all kids with picnics, treasure hunts and many more games in the open air.
From here it is possible to walk or ride down to agritur Salanzada, or else climb up (via telpher) to the Eurotel and taste its mugho cookies or its lavender cake. Here is also the starting point of a botanical route to be walked in the company of a mountain guide.
The chair lifts rises higher to refuge Paion (2,230 m a.s.l.) and its tempting giant cakes. The menu also proposes spaghetti with fish, salted meat, pork leg, Bellavista salmon (cooked whole and garnished) or the Paion dish with polenta, mushrooms, melted cheese and sausage.
The view from the terrace is an extraordinary 360 degree panorama embracing the peaks of Latemar, Catinaccio, Sasso Piatto, Sassolungo, the Sella massif, the southern side of Marmolada, the Pale di S. Martino chain, the Brenta group, Cevedale, Ortles and even further to the Venosta Alps.
Amazing excursions lead to the Bombasel lakes, the Lagorai little lakes and to Lake Lagorai.
The alpine guides on mount Cermis are available for free suggestive itineraries.
The chair lifts departing from Bellamonte follow the outline of PANEVEGGIO Nature PARK, caressing the branches of the sounding fir trees. Everywhere is a triumph of glimpses into the Pale di San Martino mountain range. The most enthralling view is at 2,000 m of altitude, from refuge Lusia (accessible via two separate chair lift facilities).
On one side, the view embraces the lower Val di Fassa, the Latemar, the Catinaccio group and the Monzoni chain.
On the other side, the Lagorai chain, the Pale di San Martino and the entire area of Paneveggio Pale di San Martino Nature Park. Refuge Lusia offers the opportunity to spend the night in one of its seven rooms with toilet facilities to enjoy a pink sunrise on the Dolomites.
