Nestled in the valley between the surrounding Marmolada and Sella mountains, Canazei is a popular holiday destination throughout the summer and winter. The rugged and breathtaking terrain offers an adventure for all ages and abilities. From those wanting to take a leisurely stroll or bike ride through to the villages of Fontanazzo, Campestrin and Mazzin. Here you can stop at the crystalline shores of Lake Antermoia. Mountaineers seeking an adrenaline rush can reach the peaks on the 16 Via Ferrata routes Canazei has to offer. Those who prefer mountain biking can put their free-riding skills to the test at the Fassa Bike Resort in Belvedere or even enter one of the four major biking competitions that take place over the summer.
Famed not simply for its sports, the verdant meadows carving through the mountains and azure waters of hidden lakes and waterfalls create an almost spa like setting, its colours of blue, green and white characteristic of the Ladin land they call home. There are dozens of spas located throughout the valley, all of them using the renowned therapeutic waters of the Terme Dolomia at Pozzo di Fassa. The town centre of Canazei is also home to shops, art galleries, museums and a fervent nightlife perfect for enjoying an apperitivo after a long day of walking.
