„the ideal starting point for a great number of hiking tours“

The Chalet Elisabeth is the ideal starting point for a great number of hiking tours in the wonderful alpine nature of the Dolomites. Many hiking routes, Nordic walking trails, jogging paths or walks pass right in front of our house.

From the Puez high route to the tour round the Sassolungo Massive - the choice you have is really vast. Hiking through the gorgeous landscape of the Dolomites is a very special pleasure and there’s the right hike for everybody: from comfortable walks on easy pasture paths to more demanding excursions on mountain ridges and crests. Rustic mountain huts and chalets are waiting for you when it’s time for a rest.

Excursion we recommend

Refugio Stevia mountain hut, 2312 m, – Forcella Piza, 2489 m, – Rifugio Firenze mountain hut, 2037 m
4 1/4 hrs / 900m of difference in altitude / level of difficulty: medium
This walk takes you straight into the middle of the Puez-Odles nature park. Starting on the steep slopes of the Stevia mountain, the route winds down through the wonderful Alpine flora of the Cisles valley.

Starting point: above Selva, Daunei car park 1.687m
From the car park, start out towards rifugio Juac, then, soon after, take path no. 3 to the right and follow it to path no. 17a (Palota path), until you reach an altitude of about 1,300 m where path no. 17 leading up from rifugio Juac joins to the left. Now walk eastwards on a sharp ridge to forcella San Silvestro, then walk into a gorge and continue over the grassy slopes to the Stevia hut. Continue northwards from the hut walking over the alpine pastures, through a corrie and finally over a steep and grassy slope to the mountain ridge.
Descent: Walk down the gorge and over a steep, rocky section to rifugio Firenze mountain hut, from there continue to rifugio Juac and walk down path no. 3 again, take the stations of the cross path which leads into Vallunga and from there walk back to Selva..

„Enjoy the Sellaronda also in summer“

In summer the Sella Ronda is a popular route for well trained mountain bikers. Every year many athletes and enthusiasts come here to celebrate the Sella Ronda Bike Day together. Another highlight is certainly the MTB Marathon Sella Ronda Hero which was organised for the first time in the summer of 2010. The tough, but fascinating race challenges the athletes’ forces on optionally 50 or 82 kilometres and a difference in altitude of 2600 or 4200 m has to be mastered.

World Cup Tours in the Dolomites UNESCO natural world heritage

While experiencing the South Tyrolean Sella Massive used to be a privilege of the skiers of the Sella Ronda in winter, it has now become possible also for mountain bikers to master this famous panoramic tour. However, the route may only be taken with expertised MTB guides. Bikers appreciate our central position in the natural garden of the Dolomites.

Sellaronda HERO & Sellaronda Bike Day

„Be a hero“

Two very special mountain biking and cycling events take place on a yearly basis on a summer weekend in June or July. On occasion of the Sella Ronda Hero Mountain bike Marathon, the hardest MTB-race of the world and the Sella Ronda Bike Day (when the mountain pass roads of the Dolomites are closed for all motorized vehicles) all the region around the Sella massive from Val Gardena to Val Badia, Ampezzo and Val di Fassa totally is in cycling spirit. And while the best fight to win the Sella Ronda Hero on Saturday, the Bike Day on Sunday is for everybody and a rather sociable and easygoing event.
