Canazei Holidays

The jewel of Val di Fassa, a summer paradise for hiking and mountain bike enthusiasts

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 where you can stop at the crystalline shores of Lake Antermoia to those experienced mountaineers seeking an adrenaline rush who 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!

Walking

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. 

        

       

You can combine your stay in Canazei with 3, 4 or 7 nights in Verona, Lake Garda or any other resort served by Verona airport.
