Sport and adventure
During summer there are numerous paths through the forests, meadows and pastures of Val di Fassa. The two most important trekking routes are La Via Alpina and Trekking delle Leggende but there are many more.
In fact, using the skilifts, visitors can easily reach the majestic peaks of the Dolomites and set out on unforgettable excursions that can be as simple or as complicated as you like.

The Via Alpina
The Via Alpina is an international project aimed at creating a series of itineraries across the entire Alps: Austria, France, Germany, Italy, Liechtenstein, Monaco, Slovenia and Switzerland.
The project was conceived by the French association Grande Traversèe des Alpes and in 1991 the Alps Convention was signed, under which the European Union and the eight countries had officialised the intention to guarantee sustainable environmental development in the Alpine area, as well as transnational tourism.
The stretch of this route that crosses Trentino, and Val di Fassa to be specific, consists of four stretches:
- Passo Pordoi – Rifugio Contrin
- Rifugio Contrin – Fontanazzo
- Fontanazzo – Rifugio Antermonia
- Rifugio Antermonia – Rifugio Bolzano.
