Day 2
The first of five guided snowshoe walks in the Fanes-Senne Natural Park, along the shoreline of Lago di Braies and beneath the iconic Tre Cime de Lavaredo.
Our trip involves five guided snowshoe walks and one free day. Our explorations generally take place in the high side valleys of the main Pusteria Valley, or on low ridges of the smaller hills. The main peaks of the Dolomites are famously steep-sided, and we avoid these, as well as the few avalanche-prone areas lying below them. But we have an excellent variety of walks at our disposal, all with superb scenery and views, many in the very heart of the famous Dolomites. An easy day takes on a high trail from the village of Dobbiaco back to Villabassa along forester's tracks and across open hillsides, with excellent views to the south. To the north are the forested flanks of a rounded hill a few kilometres northeast of Villabassa. From the summit at about 1900m we can continue to the little chapel of San Silvestro at 1912m, looking across to the jagged summits of the Dolomites. In good weather we can continue upwards, following a rounded ridge that leads to the Austrian frontier.
