Holidays in hiking paradise: the Dolomites
Adventures in Fanes-Senes-Braies, a UNESCO World Heritage Site nature park. Hiking among legendary lakes, insurmountable peaks and wild animals.
Staying in San Vigilio di Marebbe, the closest natural park is the Fanes-Senes-Braies, which was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2009. In winter the nature park becomes an important backdrop for mountain skiing, snowshoe hiking and fun sledding down the alpine pastures of Fodara Vedla and Fanes. And yet, summer really brings out the splendour of this nature reserve.
In a unique geomorphological context, the park offers countless opportunities for hiking holidays as well as for mountain biking enthusiasts. In ancient times, the steep peaks surrounding the area looked impenetrable to visitors, producing the legendary world of the Rëgn de Fanes: one of the most beautiful legends in the Dolomites.
Some park trails start directly from the Hotel Mareo Dolomites. Your hosts will be able to advise you on the best trekking for you. Pederü, the most popular access point to the nature park, is easily reached by bus. San Vigilio di Marebbe also has its own visitor centre for the Fanes-Senes-Braies nature park, where a lot of its secrets can be revealed. And if 25,453 hectares dedicated to hiking are not sufficient, there is the second natural park of Val Badia: the Puez-Odle, just 20 minutes from San Vigilio.
