Cool summer, magnificent hiking, spectacular landscapes, sports or relaxation: there is plenty of choice

In summer the Val di Fassa seems to transform in and out as if by magic from a fairy tale. Green fields, the “Rose Garden” with rhododendrons, also called “Rosengarten”, the revitalized forest and wildlife awakened after the long winter. Wherever the explosion of nature with its dazzling colors. All this you can enjoy in the tops of the “Pale Mountains”, so called because, especially in the summer, taking this particular light color, pink, purple, depending on the light, even undefinable. This is the season of trekking to practice with merry parties of friends or completely alone.

Over 300 km of marked trails for memorable excursions. Easy for the whole family or challenging for the experienced climber. You can follow enchanted valleys or paths at high altitude until reaching the highest peak in the Dolomites, the “Queen of the Dolomites” or the Marmolada (m. 3342). Some trails at high altitude are easy to reach, thanks to the same lifts that in winter take skiers on the slopes and in the summer they help to take long rides through the Dolomites of Val di Fassa. In Vigo di Fassa near the Chalet Nata you find the Catinaccio cable car that takes you on Ciampedie at 2,000 m.
