From Fedaia Pass, near the Marmolada "E. Castiglioni" Refuge, take path no. 605 that, after a first turn, goes straight to the west. Follow the easy mule road that leads to the hotel Villetta Maria, at "Pian Trevisan". From here, staying on path no. 605, go towards Penìa di Canazei. Go on along the dirt road that  often comes across the state road of Fedaia. Finally, enter the wood and walk along a longer stretch to take the path no. 602/A that joins the dirt road (path no. 602) that, from Alba di Canazei, goes up along the Val Contrin, to the namesake refuge (at 2,016 m), where the overnight stay is scheduled.

Safety information

For your hikes in mountain always choose itineraries in accordance with your technical and physical abilities. Consult maps of the area to visit and check the best way to follow. If you walk in group including slower hikers, always calculate longer average times to cover the distances.

Preferably do not hike alone in mountain. Otherwise tell someone the itinerary that you are going to follow and let him know when you are back.

Check the weather forecast and, while hiking, constantly pay attention to the evolution of the weather.

If you do not feel safe, give up. In mountain, sometimes, it is better to surrender than to face the dangers deriving from bad weather conditions or from difficulties superior to one’s limits. In advance look for alternative itineraries to get back.

Bring rubbish back with you. Respect the flora and fauna. Remain on the marked tracks, avoiding to follow shortest ways, in order to avoid causing damages to vegetation and the territory. Respect local cultures andtraditions, always bearing in mind that you are a guest.

  • 4 self guided hiking tours;
