Into the deep snow of the Altfasstal valley


Everyone knows that walking is as good for the soul as it is for the body. Especially in winter, when the air is even purer and more refreshing, taking a walk or a hike in the woods is a real boon for our health. The Altfasstal valley is the perfect destination for this. You can either set off on foot directly from Panorama Living Dolomites, or drive to the Altfasstal car park and take one of the paths that start there. From there, it takes about 30 minutes to reach the Großberg hut.

Along the way, take deep, invigorating breaths of pure mountain air and savour the enchantment of walking through snow-covered coniferous woods. If on arrival at the hut you find you can’t get enough of the fantastic snowscape, you can always continue on the same route or take a longer tour to see even more of the charming Altfasstal valley. In winter, the huts at the end of the valley are closed, but it’s still worth going there for the sheer beauty of the shimmering snowy landscape. Add a snow angel or a snowball fight, and the excursion turns into an unforgettable experience.

However, if you choose to stop by at the Großberg hut – whether for a quick afternoon snack or a delectable lunch – you won’t be disappointed. Warm up with a steaming punch or hot chocolate and indulge with a slice of home-made cake! There something for the children, too: right next to the hut, you will find a snow slide where they can have fun sliding or tobogganing. If you go on a Friday, don’t miss the special highlight: a fondue evening with a choice of meat or cheese fondue.

Afterwards, you can take advantage of the snowmobile shuttle service to get back to the car park. Another winter experience we recommend is a romantic horse-drawn sleigh ride through the idyllic Altfasstal valley – exploring it while on holiday at Panorama Living Dolomites is practically a must!
