Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

Hotel Cristallo is very close to the centre of Canazei and has a lovely sunny spot with views of the mountains. It's hosted plenty of notable guests since it opened in 1901 including royalty and film stars. Getting around from here is easy. It's in walking distance of the town square and Chiesetta della Madonna della Neve, the local church dating back to 1592. You can arrange a tour here and learn more about its history. For those wanting to get out and explore one of the many mountain walks available, you can either set off directly from the hotel or use the nearby Belvedere Gondola.

After a long day's hike or if you just fancy a day off from strenuous activities, the hotel's Romanesque Spa is the perfect place to unwind and have a bit of time for yourself. A large indoor heated swimming pool with direct access to the garden, two saunas, sensory showers and a relaxation area are all at your disposal.

Transfer time: approx. 2 hours 30 mins by coach from Verona airport.

Canazei

Canazei has a stunning location surrounded by some of the most iconic mountains in the Dolomites. Take in the spectacular views at the top of the Marmonlada or put yourself to the test by making your way up the well-groomed paths as you aim for the top of the Piz Boe. We love this family-friendly resort thanks to the endless number of activities that cater for every ability.

What to see on a Canazei holiday

Cycling is a great way to see the local area. Stick to the green forests on the valley floor or head for the exhilarating bike park trails. There's great views no matter where you go. Canazei's rich history dates back to World War One and you can learn all about the battles that took place with a visit to the Great War Museum. Take time to wonder round the cobbled streets too, there’s always something going on like music concerts and food & wine shows. If you want to explore further afield, hiking up the mountains is a great day out or you can easily jump on the lifts enjoy the spectacular views without too much effort.

Why book a holiday in Canazei with Inghams

We work in the Dolomites year round and feature the best resorts out there including Canazei. Our hotels are all traditional Italian properties near to the lifts and centre of town. We make sure you’re always in safe hands.

Things to Do

Things to see and do in the Canazei

Jumping on the lifts is one of the best ways to get out and about. Many of them allow for bikes so you can explore the Sella, Marmolada and Sassolungo mountains by foot or on two wheels. Or just hop on the shuttle train and enjoy a sightseeing tour to Val Contrin.

Throughout the season there's plenty going on from international mountain running to the Ladin folk festival, where locals from all over the Dolomites come together to celebrate their culture. 

After exploring, we love heading for the Doloandes Wellness Centre. With both fun pools and relaxation areas, it's a great way for all the family to have some fun splashing about. 

Food & drink 

When on holiday in the Dolomites you have to try out one of the many mountain huts - they're perfect for lunch. You can expect traditional Ladin recipes with many of the ingredients being sourced locally. Visit as many as you can to try lots of different dishes and unique views of the Dolomites. 

There's plenty of places for a drink in Canizei but if you like your wine, visit the Valentini Wine & Speciality Shop. They've got a great selection and you can stock up on snacks like cheese and homemade strudel too.

Activities

There's loads of great walking near Canazei including the Strada die Russi (The Road of the Russians). It's a nice easy two hour walk and the perfect way to warm up the legs at the start of your holiday. Advanced walks  includes climbing up the Piz Boe, the highest mountain of the Sella group with an elevation of 3,152 meters.

Take a trip to the Dolomiti Action Adventure Park in Campitello di Fassa or the Adventure Park Piciocaa in Pozza di Fassa to learn or test your skills along aerial zip lines, Tibetan and Nepalese swinging bridges and suspended rope passages.

Cycling is massive in Canazei, with over 400 routes to explore. One of the most popular goes through the Fassa and Fiemme valleys and along the River Avisio.
