This hike on the eastern edge of the Sella massif, with start in Corvara, is a circular hike with little variation in altitude that presents no great technical difficulties for hikers. Nevertheless, you need to be fit before attempting this hike. The hike is particularly interesting from a geological point of view as it crosses some of the characteristic rock formations of the Dolomites and has some especially interesting viewpoints.

Turn-by-turn directions

The tour starts in Corvara, where you go up to the Piz Boé Alpine Lounge mountain hut (2,224 m) – either on foot up the ski slope or on the Boé gondola lift – where the hike proper begins. Passing along the eastern slope at the foot of the Sella massif, you cross a broad meadow (in winter a ski slope) and follow mountain trail no. 638 to the Ütia Franz Kostner mountain hut on the Vallon (2,550 m). From the hut follow trail no. 637 towards the Campolongo Pass (short equipped section with steel cables, but not exposed). After a short descent, branch off to the left just above the Rifugio Bec de Roces mountain hut. A pleasant trail takes you back to the top station of the Boé gondola lift.
