Starting from the so-called ‚Pearl of lakes in the Dolomites‘ you proceed through the romantic region of the Fanes–Sennes–Prags nature park, which is one of the largest protected regions in South Tyrol. You reach the high-altitude alp ‚Hochalm Fojedöra‘ in the shade of the impressive Seekofel-massif, ready for a rest and a break.

Eindrucksvolle Wanderung

Wandern in großartiger Berglandschaft
Die vorgeschlagenen Wanderungen - oft auf dem Dolomiten-Höhenweg Nr. 1 - führten durch die fantastische Berglandschaft der Dolomiten. Vom Schwierigkeitsgrad her sind sie auch für den einigermaßen sportlichen Normal-Wanderer gut machbar. Wer es etwas weniger anstrengend möchte, es gibt immer wieder individuelle Möglichkeiten zum Abkürzen.
