Snow, fire and stars at Passo Lavazè (pass)
A snowshoeing experience at sunset topped off with a delicious dinner
Walking in the snow with snowshoes in the Dolomites, admiring the sunset on the Altipiano di Lavazè (plateau). You are surrounded by silent woods and in front of you lie vast stretches of pristine snow. Your snowshoes make a soft muffled sound as you walk through the blanket of snow and, when you glance up, you see the walls of the Latemar aglow with the orangey and red hues of a blazing fire. As you continue to snowshoe, the sun goes down and you must turn on your headlamp. Suddenly, you are only a tiny light surrounded by a universe of stars.
Your tour will be guided by territorial mountain guides, who will tell you about the surrounding nature and they will satisfy your curiosity on the local flowers and wild animals. The excursion is suitable for families with children starting from 8 years of age. Baby carriers are not recommended.
A tasty break
After this outdoor activity, there is nothing better than a tasty break! At the end of your excursion, you can relax and enjoy a traditional dinner at Malga Ora, a mountain hut situated in a beautiful panoramic position that you find along your trail. The hut’s rich menu will allow you to taste delicious local game. The tour is organised every Thursday from 17.00 to 18.30 hrs.
Daylight tours too
You can do the same snowshoeing excursion during the day too, when you can see many tracks left in the snow by red deer, roe deer, foxes and other small wild animals. In the woods, you will discover amazing traces of life, while your footprints intersect hundreds of other tracks. If you wish, you can enjoy a traditional lunch in a mountain hut. This tour is organised every Friday morning from 10.00 to 12.30 hrs.
What to wear
Wear shoes that are suitable for walking in the snow (ankle-high shoes that protect your malleolus), such as trekking shoes, après-ski shoes etc. Moon boots are not appropriate. Also, wear gloves and a woollen cap. Bring a snack and bottle of water with you. If you do not have snowshoes, you can hire them, as well as a headlamp, for €5.
