What a wonderful place!
When I was a kid we had this ice cream bar called "Dolomiti" and I always wondered how they would actually look like.
It took me a few years before I would find out and though of course they the Dolomites...More
After a night of stay in Lago di Braies we started to drive to Val di Funes to see the famous church of Santa Maddalena and it’s been a great experience the beauty and grandeur of the awesome Dolomites.
We stayed for three days at the town of Santa Maddalena. From my experience, if you go to visit Puez-Geisler Nature Park from Santa Maddalena, I suggest you two hiking destinations: Glatsch alm and gschnagenhart alm. They are amazing places! You can see both destinations’...More
This amazing park offers such a variety of amazing views your head will swim. Though most of the trails follow a specific section of the Dolomites, one sees them from many different elevations and framed by a wide variety (e.g. larch, evergreens, huge fallen rocks,...More
At 2km height, this is a very nice walk. You can go clockwise or counterclockwise around the mountains in front of you. Clockwise feels more easy to us. Its still a pretty lengthy walk (the times on the signs are pretty accurate) with enough mountaincabins/stops...More
A map is needed as the trail indicators are only in German and Italian, but the local tourist center, the place where a map should be found, was closed. Once near the mountains, the view is spectacular. In weekend it was a big crowd. At...More
Getting to the place was a bit scary as you go trough the twisted mountain roads and have to pass by even city buses. But after that we were greeted by stunning views of dolomite mountains. There are also several little restaurant where you can...More

almost surely you will find snow but almost all the paths are open. I advise you to have crampons or snowshoes or both: maybe you can find ice. You can reach some refuge, but I don't know which are open in this period. If or... More
almost surely you will find snow but almost all the paths are open. I advise you to have crampons or snowshoes or both: maybe you can find ice. You can reach some refuge, but I don't know which are open in this period. If or when you come in south Tirol, could you write to me directly for more information.
I'm sorry for my bad english.
This time of year you'd be wise to start checking weather reports for Santa Maddalena a few days ahead of time to check on snow, but from what it looked like a few days ago, with no trace of snow even in the upper peaks way... More
This time of year you'd be wise to start checking weather reports for Santa Maddalena a few days ahead of time to check on snow, but from what it looked like a few days ago, with no trace of snow even in the upper peaks way above the hiking trails, and short sleeve hiking temps, I'd tend to doubt you'd run into snow on roads in mid-October. There are an abundance of great apartments within 5 miles of the park listed under Vacation Rentals (most in Ortisei) and even a couple hotels in Santa Maddalena that you will find on TripAdvisor.
