On our journey around Sella Ronda we made a stop at Passo Sella. was. It was a sunny day and we had wonderful views onto the mountains all around. We also saw two marmots running around about a hundred metres away.

Passo Sella
Mar 2021
Passo Sella as the name suggests, is a mountain road passing through Dolomites if you're driving from Canazei. This has become very popular stop now because there are some more hotels and restaurants that must've been built due to people constantly stopping and camping along the road. Also there is a cable car too which is either new or I just didn't see last time I was here. Parking is kind of a problem in summer months because it is a narrow two lane mountain road so most people just park in a gravel layby or whatever ditch they can find to fit their car in.

Hiking options are plenty. No matter which direction you go or trail you take, you'll find the beautiful views. But to access and see the three peaks Alpe di Siusi from other side, you have to keep driving and take a cable car from any town further from the Sella.

A well run, special hotel at a very special location
Sep 2020
This hotel is a find, because it is so different from all the other hotels in the area. At 2'150 meters (7'100 ft) located just below the pass of the same name sets it apart from the many hotels in the Val Gardena that are all at much lower altitude.

The hotel has been completely new built in 2013 where once an old "Refugio" stood for many years. The inside is all wood, which you can smell as soon as you enter the upper two floor where the rooms are located.

Excellent facilities with generous underground garage, sauna and a pool, which is nicely done, but not really suitable for lap swimming.

The service, especially in the restaurant, matches the decor and is first rate too, as is the food at dinner or breakfast, that were included.

It is not a "wellness hotel" for sedate guests, but ideal for active hiking, climbing or biking, because the trails are starting right at the hotel, and of course one can perfectly relax after a day's activities. Of course there is also a bus stop for local transport to other places in the Dolomites.

Beautiful pass on the Sella Ronda. Lots of walking in the vicinity. Parking very busy. Theres a hotel and some opportunities for refreshments. The queues for the coffin lifts can be VERY long.

Riding the passes in the Dolomites is a must for every biker.

Good Walks from the Passo Sella
Jul 2019
The most popular is the short one to the Comici Hut for refreshments. We walked the south face of the Sassolungo then north & east before swinging North again & down to St Christina. You can circumnavigate the Sassolungo Mountain or get the coffin lift up to the Demetz Hut & walk back to Selva or St Christina. There is a frequent bus service once an hour to & from the pass.

One of the prime examples of the health and well-being of bicycle culture in Italy. I have ridden my bicycle extensively all throughout Europe and this was by far my favorite riding area. Perfect for mountain biking and rode cycles. The lift system in Italy is unsurpassed. It is very invasive and can take you to the outer limits. It seems that there are lift passes that can accommodate nearly any kind of traveling activities. There are too many places to talk about where you can find great food. You’re always a stones throw or a quick hike or bike from excellent cuisine and the coffee is always on point. If you plan to ride your cycle get to know your area in advance. There can be quite a bit of traffic on the good weather days. For late starters, There seems to be less motor traffic between 2 PM and 4 PM. As always the earlier you get started the better your chances of safety while on the passes. Every town and village has multiple places to have your outdoor equipment whether it is shoes poles or bicycles serviced. Also feel free to leave your high-end bikes at home there are a limited resources and the surrounding area for rentals for electric bikes and analog.

One of a few passes quite close together in the region.
Not overly busy so less traffic to spoil your driving/ riding enjoyment.
Lovely views of the mountains.
