With its unique terrain of jagged rock faces, sprawling meadows and luscious, thick pine woodland, Canazie and its surrounding areas have walks suited for every ability. The valleys offer trekking tours and historic routes on the Via Ferratas (routes using equipment), whilst the easier walks along the rivers and meadows give you the opportunity to revel in the picturesque landscapes and encounter the local wildlife including cows, wild horses and even marmots.
Popular walks include:
- Strada die Russi (The Road of the Russians) / 2 hours / Easy
Walk through the stunning San Nicolo Valley and take the Strada dei Russi, the road built by Russian prisoners of war during WW1. Though a varied terrain, the path is flat throughout and crosses a small swinging bridge over the clear waters of the Giaf stream to take you to the Baitia Ciampie where you can stop for a cold glass of Hugo and take in the views
- Pian de Schiavaneis / 1.5 hours / Medium
Start from the Church of Saint Florian in the old town of Canazei and ascend pass the old sawmill to the 'Ruf do Antermont' via the swinging bridge. Path number 655 will take you into the forest road of Pian Pozata and follow the stream right the way through to the Mortic basin where you can visit the chapel of Saint Mary Ausiliatrice - one of the oldest remaining settlements in Val di Fassa. The route then turns uphill to the 'Pian de Frataces' where after a short but steeper climb, you will find the remains of a WW1 cable car at the Roa which formerly connected Canazei with Val Gardena via the Sella Pass. A descent into the deep gully of 'Ruf de Antermont winds through the thick forests until you arrive at Pian de Schiavanies.
- Sass Pordoi / 4 hours / Advanced
From the Pordoi Pass, take the cable car to Sass Pordoi and start downhill towards the Forcella Pordoi. From there, paths 627 and 638 will take you up to the top of the Piz Boe which is the highest mountain of the Sella group with an elevation of 3,152 meters on a relatively easy path. The Capanna Piz Fassa refugio at the summit offers refreshments and the chance to rest any weary feet as you overlook the incredible views of the valleys below. Descending down the North-West side of the mountain, there is a short but rocky section with is equipped with metal safety cords or 'ferratas' as they are known locally, which will take you to another refugio before climbing back up to the cable car station at Sass Pordoi.
