Val di Fassa - Territory and Nature

The Val di Fassa, in the heart of the Dolomites, occupies the northeastern corner of Trentino, on the borders of the provinces of Bolzano (Alto Adige) and Belluno (Veneto). It is reachable accross different resorts: from the south across the San Lugano Pass and the Val di Fiemme, from the north across the Costalunga or Sella Passes and from the east across the Pordoi, Fedaia and San Pellegrino Passes. There are seven municipalities: Moena, Soraga, Vigo di Fassa, Pozza di Fassa, Mazzin di Fassa, Campitello di Fassa and Canazei. It is crossed by the River Avisio which then flows through the Fiemme and Cembra valleys into the River Adige near Trento.
The Val di Fassa. Mountains of legend, culture, traditions, sport and much more to be discovered amongst these enchanted mountains, the kingdom of the legendary King Laurino. The famous king was the guardian of this enchanted valley, where even today a fire is lit every evening at dusk giving origin to the unforgettable phenomenon of light called Enrosadira. Over time the Ladins of the Valle di Fassa have guarded this valley of incomparable beauty, stretching over about 20 km and surrounded by some of the Dolomites’ most famous peaks: Roda di Vael, Catinaccio, Sassolungo, the Sella group, Pordoi, Monzoni, over which Marmolada stands undisputed. Since tourism began in the nineteenth century the Val di Fassa has opened its doors to an ever-increasing clientele, making the most of its economic potential. Tourism today has become the principal industry of the valley and the results are tangible. There is a large network of paths and walks, endless opportunities for sport and relaxation, tradition and culture, hospitality and fun, and nine ski resorts with 200 km of pistes.
