A natural paradise in the Carnic Alps
Monte Zoncolan, the King of the Carnic Alps at 1,750 metres, is a natural paradise that welcomes tourists, athletes and hiking enthusiasts with open arms all year round.
During the warmer months of the year, it is a popular destination among cyclists looking for their next big challenge. You can put your skills to the test on one of the toughest climbs in Europe, and indeed one of the most notoriously difficult stages for cyclists participating in the Giro d’Italia.
Meanwhile in winter, Monte Zoncolan boasts one of the most renowned ski areas in Friuli-Venezia Giulia (Zoncolan - Ravascletto/Sutrio), with 23 kilometres of slopes for skiing and snowboarding served by 11 ski lifts that carry visitors up to an altitude of 1,970 metres above sea level. There are also plenty of trails for snowshoeing with friends or for setting off on a snowmobile for the most exhilarating excursions. You can also find a large ice-skating rink in the nearby town of Ravascletto.
