Colfosco – holiday paradise close to nature
Relaxed activity holidays at the foot of the Sella-Massif and the Sassongher
What makes Colfosco into a particularly attractive holiday destination are on the one hand the imposing mountains of the Dolomites, which surround it and on the other hand its excellent central location on the Sellaronda.
Situated at 1,645 m above sea level on the edge of the UNESCO World Heritage Site Puez-Odle Nature Park, this calm and peaceful little place offers countless possibilities for a relaxing yet nevertheless active holiday.
Many regular visitors keep returning to Colfosco, both in summer and in winter. They view their hotel or holiday home in Colfosco as a kind of second home. But even those visitors who come to Colfosco for the first time will be amazed by the vast range of accommodation available. From first class hotel to comfortable hostelry, from family-run guesthouse to bed and breakfast, from holiday home to campsite and farm holiday: There is a truly wide choice of accommodation in Colfosco covering all price categories, and you will never have to sacrifice quality or comfort.
In summer you can undertake a wide variety of walks and hikes starting from Colfosco, which is situated right in the middle of the skiing and hiking area, without needing to use your car. Comfortable lifts allow an effortless ascent, even for those who arrive with a mountain bike. Whether you are simply hiking, hillwalking or touring on your mountain bike, you will be constantly amazed by the fascinating natural landscape of the Dolomites. The Sella Group with the Via Ferrata Pisciadú (a ‘via ferrata’ is known as a fixed-rope route) is a particular favourite for rock climbers, as is the Val de Misdé (Val Mezdì).
In winter Colfosco is a favourite holiday destination for families, who above all love the sunny Edelweiss Valley (Val Stelle Alpina). It is also the ideal starting point for the panoramic Sellaronda ski circuit and for exciting skiing tours such as those leading to the Puez summit and through the Val de Misdé (Mittagstal) and the Grup dl Sela (Sella Group).
