The Giro del Sassopiatto. Dolomite excursions and mountain treks in the Siusi Alps  

Thursday, 14 April 2022 09:51

The Giro del Sassopiatto is one of the most beautiful Dolomite excursions and popular for mountain treks in the Siusi Alps. Starting from Campitello di Fassa with the cable car that goes up to Col Rodella, you can reach the Federico Augusto Refuge at 2,298 metres asl.

Mountain peaks and refuges

The tour around the Sassopiatto takes around 4 to 5 hours, is very scenic, and takes in the many peaks of the Sassolungo as well as the Sandro Pertini Refuge at 2,300 metres and the Vicenza  Refuge at 2,250 metres, from which you can continue to the Sassolungo fork at 2,681 metres and the Toni Demetz Refuge.

A natural border with the Val di Fiemme valley

The Val di Fassa valley consists of six municipalities. The upper Avisio river (a left tributary of the Adige) crosses the entire valley from its sources to the confluence of the San Pellegrino river in the centre of Moena, forming the natural border with the Val di Fiemme valley.

Dolomite and non-dolomitic massifs

The valley is surrounded by some of the most important Dolomite massifs: the Marmolada and the Sella, Sassolungo and Catinaccio groups, and also by mountains with non-dolomitic lithology such as the Buffaure and the Monzoni. The Val di Fassa is connected to the other Dolomite valleys by State Road 48 which connects it to the Val di Fiemme and Ora in the Adige Valley, as well as to Livinallongo del Col di Lana and Cortina d ' Ampezzo via the Pordoi Pass.
