More than just skiing

As an alternative or supplement to skiing, San Martino di Castrozza, Passo Rolle, Primiero and Vanoi offer from 7th January until 05th April 2021 a rich weekly programme: guided walks, snowshoes excursions, tasting of typical local products, historic and artistic tours, fascinating explorations and outdoor adventures. An unusual and exciting way to experience the atmosphere of mountain villages and the environment of the Paneveggio Pale di San Martino Nature Park in the quiet of the winter season.

Some activities are carried out only when a minimum number of members is reached. The program may at any time vary due to force majeure..



Even people who are not that keen on sport have discovered the pleasure of excursions in the winter woods on snowshoes. 

The old wooden “craspe” or “ciaspole”, as they are called in Italian, with string bindings, have now been replaced by modern, lightweight versions in metal or plastic that are done up like standard ski boots. Learning how to use them is really easy, so even children will fall in love with this sport which allows you not only to partake in pleasant strolls, but also to perform jumps, dives and somersaults in powdery snow.

Every day, the Alpine guides organise excursions to the most beautiful areas: the Colbricon Lakes on the trail of prehistoric hunters, the plateau of the Pala mountain range in a fascinating atmosphere created by the “sea of snow”, the Piani della Cavallazza which is the kingdom of the chamois, the magical Val Venegia, and hiking trail of the “Cristo Pensante” on Mount Castellaz.

€ 30 all day, € 20 half day, € 15 excursions at sunset or in the evenings, including snowshoe hire and poles, plus the services of an Alpine guide. Any charges for using ski lifts are borne by the participants.

Mezzano - Primiero Valley

Among the "Most Beautiful Villages in Italy", just a stone's throw from Fiera di Primiero and San Martino di Castrozza, Mezzano claims its proud identity and celebrates the rural with themed itineraries dedicated to water, vegetable gardens, peasant architecture, carvings, frescoes and woodpiles that here become art. An example of an Italy that does not give up and rediscovers itself strong in values elsewhere lost. Having joined the ranks of I Borghi più Belli d'Italia (Italy's Most Beautiful Villages), strengthened by a moving Dolomite backdrop and having always been a crossroads to more renowned places, Mezzano sends forth a show all its own, the kind that enchants in its disarming simplicity. Today the hamlet is a kind of reservoir of alpine life, an inexhaustible mine of ideas that offer themselves to the wayfarer in every hidden corner, along the alleys, in the small squares, in the shadow of the balconies in a vibrant museum under the sky. To be explored along several themed itineraries, inviting one to trace the "Scattered Signs of the Rural": water, vegetable gardens, architecture, wall paintings, ancient inscriptions and artistic stacks. In Mezzano, everything starts from nature and leads back to nature. So, too, do the many marked trails that lead from the village to the discovery of a still unaltered and poignant environment.

The magic of sunset over the Pale di San Martino and a tasty homemade snack.The sunset in the Dolomites, also known as Enrosadira, is not simply a moment. It is a white anticipation, a crescendo of emotions, an explosion of colours from yellow to pink, making you feel at one with the wonder that surrounds you. It is a state of mind, that of enchantment even though you may have seen it a thousand times before, for which there is no cold that holds, because it would be worth it anyway. If we then add the snow covering the landscape and a wow snack based on local products, traditional sweets and tasty chopping boards paired with craft beers, Trentino wines or a warm herbal tea, you have everything you need to experience one of the greatest emotions that these peaks can give you.
