PORDOI PASS - COL DEI ROSSI - VIEL DAL PAN - FEDAIA PASS
The Viel dal Pan is a well known high-level path, which starts at the Fre-darola refuge (2,388 m). The refuge can be reached from Canazei either by bus or by cable-car. In the first case take the bus to the Pordoi pass and then find path no. 601 which starts between the Casa Alpina and the Savoia Hotel. The path climbs up next to the Sas Becé mountain and proceeds past the Sass Becé refuge. It then goes down slightly to the Fredarola refuge (40 mins to add to total time). If you prefer to use the cable-car you will arrive at Col dei Rossi. Now walk downhill to the Belvedere refuge and then take the short-cut to the right to the Fredarola refuge (add 20 mins to total time). Here the Viel dal Pan begins. It is marked path no. 601 and is the continuation of the path from the Pordoi pass. You will come to the Viel dal Pan refuge at 2,432 m (40 mins). Keep going and when you notice a saddle up to the left you will probably want to go up to enjoy the view of the Livinallongo valley and the Tofane mountains. When you come to a fork, you will first go down a long diagonal and then the path winds down steeply to the main road and the Marmolada “E. Castiglioni” refuge at 2,044 m (1 hour 20; 2 hrs). The bus back to Canazei (Trentino Trasporti Bus Company) stops right next to the point where the path comes out.
