You are a real hiker and you don't use lifts? Ok, then walk to the top of Paganella from the village of Fai! Unforgettable 360° views.

Author’s recommendation

360° view from Mount Paganella.

From the top of Paganella, you can go down either to Andalo or to Fai della Paganella; you can go down, in both directions, using the lifts as well.

 

Avoid the queue: purchase online your ticket and go directly to turnstile. Choose the stage and pay with your credit card. You will receive by email your ticket (you can print the ticket or save it in your smartphone), scan it on the orange scanner on the turnstile located at the gates of the lift.

Destination

Fai della Paganella - Santel

Turn-by-turn directions

From Fai della Paganella, Santel, near the departure of the chairlift, you take the road leading to rifugio Meriz: the road is often quite steep and goes into a beautiful forest. At rifugio Meriz, you continue on the right side of the ski-slope and you reach first Malga Fai, recently renewed and then rifugio Dosso Larici, where you go out of the forest. You continue along the path that leads to cima Paganella, where the view embraces all Trentino, from the Brenta Dolomites to Lake Garda, from Adige Valley to the Eastern Dolomites. Simply unforgettable!

A causa dei percorsi per il Downhill non è più possibile seguire l'itinerario come descritto. Si sale nel bosco a dx delle piste facendo attenzione alle indicazioni.
