Uncontaminated nature, a transparent river, tall pine trees and a stunningly clean lake at the top of the mountain. The hike is about 5 kilometres to the top from Rifugio Pederu'. Make sure you are in good shape as there are steep areas but not too extreme: we went with our kid and it was fine. Bring some water and snacks. You can have great food when you reach the top of the hike (3 choices).

I have been hiking in Fanes Valley since I was a kid. Ever since I hiked in many other places in the world: the whole Alps range, the Appennines, Kashmir-Karakoram, Caucasus, central Hindu Kush, and many other mountain places. Alpe di Fanes is to me the mountain's sightseeing closest to perfection. Its shape first of all: it is like a big fortress of dolomite rocks surging up to over 3000m from the lower pastures of Val Marebbe, 1500m lower. Like a big crown the fortress surrounds and shelters a high plateau of 2000m to 2200m high, hidden from all angles: Alpe Fanes. You will discover it when you'll get in through the surrounding passes, Limo and Tadega. It is a big green oval pasture about 5 km long and 2km wide spotted by small lakes (Lago di Limo is the biggest) streams and big limestone white rocks scattered along the green mild slopes. Everything is in proportion and the green of the lawns, the pink and white of the dolomites, the blue of the sky and of the small lakes combine together in a unique way. Alpe Fanes is close to Alpe Sennes, which is part of the same Natural Park. Also Alpe Sennes is of stunning beauty as it is lake Braies, at the foot of Croda del Becco. Braies is to me the most beautiful lake of the Dolomites. The whole area is a corner of paradise, where Alpe Fanes is the jewel of the crown.

THis was stunning. At the advice of our hotel (Hotel Corona, St. Vigilio) we hikes up here towards Refugio Fanes. It was stunning. Well marked route. Both for mountain bikers and hikers. That may seem like a distraction but it was fun to watch the cyclists as well. The higher we got, the more majestic the scenery unfolded. Refugios for breaks. Met people who were hiking from town to town. We would do that next time.

It take s little effort to get here, but the pay-off never ends in this little corner of the Italian Alps. The friendliest people, the best hikes, food, scenery, temperature, atmosphere....you name it, San Vigilio has it. I cannot wait to go back, as we only had time to scratch the surface of this magical part of Europe.

Beautiful hiking above timberline. Vast meadows with lovely wildflowers even in September though steep and very rocky.

Very good trip through the vale and mountains.
Very good indications to not lose tour way, with signposts at each crossway.

I did tour skiing during the winter and mountain biking this June. Nature is super nice, roads and paths in very good condition, Ucia Fanes (good food, nice variety of grappa) and Ucia Lavarella are good places to eat and get some good beer (Lavarella supposed to be the highest brewery in Europe, 2050 m).
