Walking in the Catinaccio area

Catinaccio-Latemar area – hiking in a beauty spot

Long and short hiking routes, steep and flat stretches – around 530 km of hiking paths of all difficulty open up in Val d’Ega hiking area. Get stuck right in or start in a leisurely fashion with the summer lifts. Well-groomed forest and woodland paths, marked stretches and steep tracks, hikes to the craggy mountain peaks of the Dolomites. Walking and discovering the bold beauty all around you from no one's perspective but your own!

A rose-adorned maze of options – the best of hiking!

There are so many scenic paths just waiting to be walked around the Catinaccio area: for example, the large and small circuit around the Catinaccio massif or the Sissi scenic circular walk. There's the Hirzelweg path, too, which starts at the mountain terminal of Paolina cable car and leads through a geological open-air museum on world history on its way to the Kölner Hütte.

The way from Nova Levante to legend-shrouded Lago di Carezza or from Carezza forest right into the rocky maze of the Latemar, with its enormous rock formations to question your sense of proportion, is a little more leisurely. This walk from farmstead to farmstead runs through lush green fields, past rustic farm buildings and affords a dreamlike horizon.

The somewhat steeper ascent from Costalunga Pass to Poppekanzel mountain is rewarded with an even more spectacular view: from the Pala group to the Ortles mountain. The beauty of these mountain giants will be etched into your memory.

No hike would be complete without stopping off for a bite to eat! Charming mountain huts and restaurants – a feast for your eyes and stomach.
