Hiking Trail Nature / Park
Passo Giau is one of the most scenic passes of the Venetian Dolomites. The road begins at Colle Santa Lucia and continues uphill through sparse forests for approximately 10 km (6.2 mi) until the summit. On a clear day, the summit offers a view over the Cortina D'Ampezzo valley and the peaks of the Dolomites. Reward yourself with a hot or cold drink at the inviting cafe at the summit. Pick up a map of all of the area's marked trails at the local tourism office.

  • Not everyone likes and live equally in these mountains, a world heritage site, but I personally think that should be experienced on foot. However it's more comfortable starting already high for the tours, guests arriving by car. The Giau pass after 29 switchbacks, is starting point for trips easy, Rifugio Nuvolau, Averau, 5 towers or climbing short and long ... Now a damper of motorcycle noise ...

  • Easy to reach, has a large car park where you can leave your car and take a walk is not binding, but that offers amazing sceneries!

  • From the Passo Giau did the three huts Averau, squirrels and the historian 5 towers. Breathtaking scenery from the Averau (which you can reach at 1:00 walk), a little more tiring returning from part of 5 towers (it takes about two hours).
