Lake Fedèra in Cortina d’Ampezzo's Dolomites

Wednesday, 04 May 2022 11:27

Lake Fedèra, at over 2,000 asl is an enchanting Dolomite attraction close to Cortina d’Ampezzo. Legend has it that the constant level of the lake is due to the presence of an evil dragon who took refuge in its waters after destroying the city of Miliera.

The truth, however, lies in the presence of underground springs that constantly feed the body of water, thus maintaining the level unchanged.

Mythical creatures and underground springs

Both for those who still believe in the story of the dragon and the more sceptical who choose the explanation of the underground springs, the fact is that Lake Fedèra is an enchanting place immersed in the Natural Park of the Dolomites. The lake can be reached on foot or wearing snowshoes from nearby Cortina d'Ampezzo or from the various paths that start from Ru Curto, Campo, Passo Giau and Peziè de Parù.

Beautiful natural surroundings and a mountain refuge

Sledding enthusiasts can descend to the valley along a 7-kilometre snow-covered trail, which is especially popular in winter. The beauty of the surrounding environment, as well as the relative ease of access through it, makes the lake very popular with tourists, and it is frequently depicted as a symbol of the Dolomites on postcards. The Cai Croda da Lago refuge is located on the Lake Fedèra's southern shore, and is a good choice to stay, eat, or just relax in the sauna.
