Between hiking, via ferratas and gentle walks
At an altitude of over 2,200 metres, between the Sella Group to the north and the Marmolada Group to the south, the Pordoi Pass connects Arabba to Canazei in the Fassa Valley. It is one of the four passes of the Great Dolomites Road, built in the early 20th century to connect Bolzano to Cortina. The area is home to numerous ski lifts and slopes belonging to the Sellaronda and the Dolomiti Superski ski area. The Sass Becè ski area boats two slopes that offer fantastic close-up views of the Marmolada glacier.
In summer, it is a great starting point for hikes and via ferrata climbing routes, as well as more gentle walks, such as the Viel dal Pan, an ancient route taken by bread merchants on their business trips between Veneto and Trentino. From the pass, the Boè Group is accessible by cable car, which, in just a few minutes, takes you to the 2,950-metre-high Sass Pordoi, a ride that offers 360-degree views over the entire alpine region.
We recommend visiting Moena, not only for its traditional village, but also due to its proximity to the Alochet Cross-country Ski Centre, ideal for cross-country skiing enthusiasts. You will find beautiful tracks among wide clearings and snow-covered forests. Moena is also the starting point for the famous Marcialonga di Fiemme e Fassa, the biggest cross-country skiing race in Italy, which is held in January.
