A short transfer (10 mins) brings you to Colfosco where today’s exciting hike begins. Take the cable car to Pradat at 2,038m then follow an undulating trail as it skirts the foot of today’s objective: Sassongher peak. A steep narrow path with sections of easy Via Ferrata (no equipment required) leads to the summit at 2,665m, offering amazing views of the Sella and Fanes peaks. Continue through the Puez Geisler Nature Park, to reach the Gardenacia Hut. Enjoy a celebratory drink and homemade cake at the hut before heading for the chairlift. Descend to the small village of La Villa; surrounded by two Nature Parks, it’s a great base for the next two nights.

Today you will be walking along narrow and exposed paths, so a head for heights and a sure foot is required. There are some easy Via Ferrata sections (metal wires, ladders, footholds bolted into the rock) to overcome. These don't require any specialist equipment and are similar to an easy scramble. 

Watch the short term local weather forecasts. Avoid high altitude hiking when the weather is bad. There are plenty of trails in the valleys that allow you to reach a village quickly if bad weather sets in.

La Villa


Start from Colfosco, where you will catch the Col Pradat gondola to the start of your walk. Reach the mountain station of Col Pradat where you will follow trail nr. 7 signposted for Puez. The trail crosses a very steep and grassy slope as it leads you up to the Forcela Sassongher passage. This is where the most difficult part of the climb along the Via Ferrata begins.

Keep right and cross a steep scree slope to reach the ascending rocky trail leading up to the Sassongher summit. This trail is a Via Ferrata and fixed cables will help you climb up the smooth rocks before you reach an uphill section that takes you across scree to the wide-area at the very summit (2,665 m).

Descend the same way you came until you reach the Forcela di Sassongher gap, continue north on mountain trail no. 5, descending steeply to a line of rocks beneath the Para da Giai, Cross over a steep scree slope down past the source of the Ruac stream to the Ütia de Gardenacia mountain hut. Above the Ütia Sponata hut, you can shorten the descent by taking the Gardenacia chairlift down to La Villa if you wish, as the descend can be tough on your knees.

Continue to descend on mountain trail no. 5 to reach La Villa.
