This relatively easy snowshoe hike, with little variation in altitude, goes through the Armentarola meadows in San Cassiano as far as the Valparola Pass and is ideal for anyone looking for something a bit different for half a day.

Snow-covered meadows and fantastic views await the hiker. You can gaze all around from the Setsas to the Col di Lana, from the Sass de Putia to the Sassongher, from the Lavarella to the Conturines and Lagazuoi. And when, in late afternoon, the sun tinges the peaks of the Dolomites with pink or red, the natural spectacle is simply perfect.

Turn-by-turn directions

The hike starts at the Armentarola hotel (bus stop).

Follow the signposted trail no. 18 and walk south-east slightly uphill through the forest. Then you cross an asphalt road and continue walking to the Gran Ancëi hotel and southwards through the gently rolling meadows of Prè de Costa to the edge of the forest. At the fork in the trail, continue on trail no. 18, climbing gradually uphill through the trees.

You will then arrive at the idyllic Valparola Alpine pasture land with its traditional huts.
