Croda d’Ancona.

In contrast to many years ago when mountain people made their living from pasture and agriculture, today Cortina’s economy is based mainly on tourism which has undoubtedly brought wellbeing and a certain wealth with it. There is a flip side to the coin, however. In peak season the mountains are frequently invaded by crowds of […]

The walk around Tofana di Rozes and the ferrata Scala del Minighel.

The Tofana di Rozes circuit is definitely one of my favourite outings because of its wonderful natural environment, interesting history in both war and peace and for the legendary Minighèl ladder and Tofana di Rozes itself which, for me, is the most beautiful mountain in the Dolomites.

The two walks underneath the Fanes waterfalls are truly spectacular.fanes waterfalls The sequence of potholes, rapids and […]

What I am about to describe is a pleasant walk in the mountains, neither difficult nor dangerous, which starts at the Cimabanche Pass (1529 m) and leads us to Plätzwiese (Prato Piazza in Italian), the plateau that extends up to an altitude of about 2000m. This plateau is protected by UNESCO because of its precious […]
