Discovering the marvellous Fanes-Sennes-Braies Natural Park or walking on the flowering meadows of the Pralongià plateau is an unforgettable experience. From Piz Sorega, a breathtaking view of the majestic mountain tops of the Alta Badia Dolomites opens up before you. If you look southwards, you will be able to admire the snow-clad "Marmolada" mountain group gleaming in the sun. Famous summits such as those of the "Sella" mountain group, of the "Sassongher", the "Sasso di Santa Croce" and of the "La Varella" are so vivid you feel you could almost touch them. Climbing enthusiasts can come in close contact with the rocky mountain faces of over 200 routes on the Sass Dlacia climbing wall.
One of the favourite destinations for hikers is the "Santa Croce" sanctuary located in a green space at the foot of the Dolomites.
