Canazei is the best known of the towns in Val di Fassa. It’s right at the foot of the Pordoi, Sella, and Fedaia passes, so is in a great location. Summer in Canazei is brilliant for sport, too. Take a walk in blossoming meadows and through fairy-tale forests, hike from mountain hut to mountain hut, enjoy some via ferratas at the peaks that defined mountaineering, try paragliding or go on an unforgettable tour on an e-bike, mountain bike or racing bike.
Campitello di Fassa
Campitello di Fassa is overlooked by the amazing Sassolungo and Col Rodella peaks, which you can easily reach by cable car. From there you can set out on a stunning hike to the Passo Sella, Val Gardena and Alpe di Siusi. Things not to miss include the historic town centre and old houses with traditional wooden features, tours of the enchanting Val Duron past the hamlet of Pian, and the climbing centre, high rope centre and golfing range in the Ischia sports centre.
Mazzin di Fassa
Mazzin is the smallest settlement in Val di Fassa. It’s known locally for attracting artisans looking for a seasonal residence abroad. In the summer, Mazzin is the perfect base for any number of walks and hikes through the Rosengarten group, the (not so) wild valleys of Val Udai and Val di Grepa as well as the green Val di Dona and up to the Antermoia Lake — a mountain lake surrounded by white Dolomite rocks and rugged peaks.
Pozza di Fassa
Pozza and its outpost of Pera are both nestled in the wide Val di Fassa. What makes these places brilliant is their variety: thermal spas, museums, farmsteads full of traditional products and dishes, playgrounds, wonderful valleys all around like Monzoni, Gardeccia and Vajolet that you can easily reach on foot or by mountain bike. The San Nicolò valley is a popular destination, and it’s little wonder why: green meadows, rare flowers, traditional mountain huts, and roaring waterfalls await.
Vigo di Fassa
Vigo lies on a bright sunny terrace overlooking the valley. On a hillock at the edge of the forest the church of Santa Giuliana watches over the village. The cable car leaves from the city centre, taking visitors the 1,998 metres to Ciampedìe where they can enjoy an outstanding view of the surrounding Dolomites. The little plateau is great for families, with its safe and sunny playgrounds, as well as for hikers with less experience who can make their way to Gardeccia from here.
Soraga di Fassa
Soraga is one of the oldest settlements in Val di Fassa. The village at the foot of the Vallaccia and Monzoni Group is overlooked by the Catinaccio and Rotwand, and is known for its wood carving and carpentry. Charming farmsteads and a lovely riverside park welcome visitors to Soraga. There’s a large children’s playground, and bike enthusiasts will find it easy to get to the Dolomites bike paths from here. We recommend visiting Fuciade, a gentle valley you can reach from the San Pellegrino pass.
Moena lies at the mouth of the Val di Fassa. Locals call it the Fairy of the Dolomites, because of the old legends and fairy-tales set here. The elegant pedestrian area and stylish shops, bars, and restaurants also add a touch of magic! In the summer, Moena is the place for anyone who wants to enjoy walks in nature, hiking around summits at the Alpe Lusia and San Pellegrino, or head on a mountain bike excursion with a panoramic view of the Dolomites.
