  • Explore the incredible valley listed as a UNESCO-listed site for its landscape.

  • Hike past stunning waterfalls, lakes and mountain peaks.

  • Uncover the Fanes legends that are sprinkled across the mountainside.


Dig out the legends of the fascinating Val di Fanes on a 2-day trek in the Dolomites, and experience stunning scenery.

The timeless valley is scattered with legends of battles, magic, arrowheads and mountains that change colour.

We will begin in the east and cross westwards, which join the Ampezzo Valley and the Val Badia.

The journey consists of the wild and desert terrain flanked by limestone banks in the Alpe di Fanes Piccola. Over the centuries the process of erosion has created bizarre rock formations.

Immersre yourself in the magical mountainside and visit the Marmot Parliament, a peculiar karstic amphitheatre where tales of the Fanes people originate.

The whistles of the marmot will evoke echoes of this legendary region, while the constant trickle of water accompanies us as we climb along the Val di Fanes running parallel to the Rio Fanes. The gushes in this water-rich region come from the highlands and the surrounding peaks. It also produces many waterfalls and ravines.

Once we ascend to the valley’s plateau we’ll head to the Col Bechei where we’ll discover incredible 360-degree views of surrounding valleys. Here the noise of the marmot fade, as the whistles of the ibex become more pronounced.

We’ll reach a rift between towering vertical walls that allow us to overlook the incredible mountains of Lagazuoi and Armentarola.

Get in touch now to reserve your place in the magical Dolomite mountainside and join the 2-day trek in the Val di Fanes to discover incredible scenery and timeless legends.

    About the Guide


    On the mountain by feet or by bike, but above all, dreaming.

    Born and raised in the middle of the Dolomites; for years work tried to keep me away from the mountains, but now I have the possibility to live in the high lands enjoing the mountains.
