Canazei, renowned winter destination in Val di Fassa, does not need a lot of words for introduction: one just needs to witness the stately beauty of its sceneries, even more spectacular when they are covered in soft glittering snow.
A true El Dorado for lovers of any type of skiing, Canazei features ski trails covering more than 210 km, with ideal snow conditions during the whole season. A huge sportsground that suits everyone’s skills: blue trails for beginners, black trails for adrenaline lovers.
To add some more spice to your day outdoors, try some delicious and hearty dishes of Ladin tradition in one of the many rifugi (mountain lodges) near the trails.
Your snow adventure does not end here: there are so many activities you can try to get to know the territory and test your limits. Cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, sledging, ice-skating – choose your favourite way to enjoy the magic of snow. If you love cross-country, just a short walk from the Art Hotel you will find the well-known Marcialonga trail: even the less athletic join in the cheer for this famous ski race.
For an experience of pure fun on the ice rink, visit the Stadio del ghiaccio in Alba di Canazei, a huge frozen stage, open in both winter and summer.
Those who prefer a more tranquil day outdoors will enjoy a hike, with or without snowshoes, in the majestic spruce woods throughout the valley – but even a leisurely walk in Canazei’s town centre or in the other Fassa villages can be full of wondrous surprises: mysterious corners hidden between traditional mountain houses and barns, sparkling boutique windows and delicious smells for those who love the magic of shopping.
Wellness centres Dolaondes in Canazei and QC Terme in Sen Jan di Fassa are havens of well-being with relaxing and invigorating powers. All the shapes of water and heat will give you a chance to conclude your day in a pleasantly therapeutic way.
All that’s left to do is pack your bags and prepare for a thrilling first hand experience of a magic holiday in Canazei!
