Wow! We left Venice and a few hours later felt like we were in Austria. The drive is amazing. Narrow, winding roads on the way to the top to Passo Sella. Gorgeous views of the valley and the Dolomites. You'll pass through beautiful Ortesei and...More

With just a flurry of snow in mid summer this pass loses none of its awesome grandeur and ominous presence. The drive down, complete with hairpin bends and steep drops was more exciting with the good visibility we enjoyed

The most beautiful spot in the valley. We stopped here on a hunch. It was mesmerizing... 360 degree of panoramic view of the dolomites. Weather permitting, do not miss this!

I've been to the Sella Pass literally a hundred times, but upon returning this year, I found there are restrictions w/r number of automobiles allowed per day. This area is fantastic, but the vehicle emissions are having an effect on the vegetation--not to mention the...More

Good bus connection between Selva and Passo Sella, no need to use your own car. Took the bus there and back. Walked first up to Rif. T. Demetz, where we had a coffee break. It was a fairly steep route, easy to walk anyway. Continued...More

Passo Selva is reachable by car for free when you have downloaded an app and “booked” a time to enter. All time slots were available to us, no limitations. An understandable system to reduce traffic congestion. Good. We parked close to the Passo and walked...More

Probably. There are restrictions on numbers of vehicles, but check in Wolkenstein ahead of time.

Summer bus service in Canazei (0 Replies)
Canazei seems to be right where SAD and Trentino Transport systems meet. I've checked websites for both companies, but I haven't found a reference to a bus from Bolzano to Canazei. I know the schedule for August is probably not out, but I'd just like to get an idea of which company it is, how often the bus goes and how long it takes. I find references to a Sellaronda bus that makes the rounds between Passo Sella and Passo Pordoi and Canazei, so it looks like if I stay in Canazei I will be...More

Hiking at Col Rodela; also Pecol/Belvedere (11 Replies)
Can anyone comment on scenery at Col Rodela? Hoping for stunning dolomite formations. We are thinking of hiking from the lift. Is the trail from the lift /Rif Col Rodela to Rif Passo Sella difficult (my information says it's an hour). Or would it be better to go west for scenery etc to Rif F. August and Rif Sandro Pertini? How does the Col Rodela compare for scenery and trails with taking the lift from Canazei to Pecol and then on to Col de Rosc/Belvedere? Thanks!

Hello, there's scenery everywhere up there! You get higer if you go up Belvedere, as it takes you to the top of the Sella Massif. If you go up Col Rodella you get views of the Sella Massif, and you're closer to the Sassolungo. If you wanted to you could walk down to the Passo Sella (I'm not sure it's an hour down, maybe 45 minutes up though!) you could catch the "Coffin" lift up to the Sassolungo forcella - again different views. It's all wonderful. Any reason you have to choose? Are you...More

Snow Conditions on Circuit of Sassolungo (1 Replies)
We are hoping to walk the circuit of Sassolungo next week, starting at Passo Sella and walking via Refugios F August, Pertini, Sassopiato, Vicenza & Comici. Do you know if the snow conditions will allow us to complete this walk without the need for ice axe and crampons?
