What to do in the surrounding areas

So many ideas on what to do and see in San Martino di Castrozza

In addition to the pleasurable walks in summer and skiing in winter (only to mention the most popular, traditional activities), the mountain has many ideas in store on what to do and see and some of thesecan be useful when the weather is bad (although it is worthy of note that fortunately San Martino di Castrozza often boasts great weather).


Among the most beautiful locations to visit, we recommend a trip to Val VenegiathePala mountain group plateau (50 km2 of bare rock, a suggestive stone plateau at a height of 2,700 metres), Val Canali, the Lagorai massif and the inevitable Paneveggio Pale di San Martino Natural Park, inside which the wildlife deer area and the Marciò path that runs through the magnificent Foresta dei Violini (Violin Forest), with the spectacular suspended bridge overlooking the Travignolo river stand out from all the rest.

Not to be missed is the thrill of a visit to the UNESCO Dolomites Panoramic Balcony, which offers a breathtaking view of all the surrounding mountains. You can easily reach it on foot, in about 15 minutes from the top of the arrival station of the Tognola cable car.

Without forgetting the itineraries of the 1915-18 Great War (WWI) that recall the blood shed by the many soldiers who died defending their Country.

However, there are many ideas to enrich your holiday, according to your tastes: ice climbing (climbing on ice falls); survival school; San Martino Bike Arena for Mountain Bike enthusiasts; climbing; via ferratas; free climbing, canyoning; agility forrest, visit to educational farms that children like so much (“if I listen I forget, if I see I remember, if I do I learn”).


In winter, there are so many things to do away from the ski slopes such as romantic excursions on board the troika (the large, wooden horse-drawn sledge), ice-skating, karting and sport driving courses in Prà delle Nasse.

A thrilling experience to be enjoyed includes snowshoeing together with Alpine Guides: these excursions are walks wearing snowshoes, a way of discovering the local area while enjoying yourself.


The mountain is also a gourmet experience and the flavors of Trentino enrich every stay. Discover the Cheese Route of the Dolomites and you can taste the typical products of Primiero such as La Tosèla, Il Nostrano di Primiero and Botìro di Primiero di Malga – Slow Food presidium.

Moreover, after skiing and not only, it is time to enjoy the so-called “après ski” in the various bars, pubs, wine bars, cafès, pastry shops and creperie that can also organise really enthralling theme nights!

Lovers of culture and traditions, on the other hand, should not miss a visit to the Palazzo delle Miniere in Fiera di Primiero; at Villa Welsperg and at the Casa Del Parco Naturale di Paneveggio; at the Ecomuseum of Canal San Bovo; at the Museum of the Great War of Caoria and at the Ecomuseum of Vanoi and in Mezzano Romantica, considered one of the most beautiful villages in Italy.

Hotel Cristallo & Hotel Orsingher are two different facilities, yet they are doubly linked: not only by the appealing heated tunnel that joins them physically, but over all because they are run by the same family, the Taufers, who are ready to welcome you up in the mountains and introduce you to the local culture and taste.
