Explore the Dolomite Horizons
The snowshoe, hiking and seal skin trail with views of the Dolomites and the imposing Marmolada glacier

This route is an exciting panoramic trail and is reserved for snowshoers and walkers with crampons; it starts at an altitude of 2000 metres, near the Cermis resort, and will take you up to the Paion peak at 2230 metres. With a length of 1300 metres and an altitude difference of 210 metres, it can be walked both uphill and downhill and is suitable for adults and children who are used to walking.

During the hike, you will enjoy spectacular views of the majestic Dolomites and immerse yourself in the enchanting Lagorai stone pine forest.

He will be your point of reference during the route with snowshoes on your feet. This is an unmissable opportunity to take in the infinite variations and nuances of an incredible landscape, immersing yourself in the enchantment of a forest that offers well-being.
