The perfect family-oriented hike starts in Badia and leads to the feet of the mighty faces of the Sasso di Santa Croce and through the snow-covered Armentara meadows.

It is worth making a diversion to the ice cave above the tree line at the feet of the towering face of the Sasso delle Dieci.

The ice cave is an interesting natural cave created by the stream which rushes down from the Sasso delle Dieci when the snow melts and during storms in summer.

Turn-by-turn directions

The hike begins in Badia, where you can go up to La Crusc/Santa Croce (2045 m) by La Crusc 1 cable car and La Crusc 2 chair lift or by foot (2 hours).
Head north above the little Santa Croce Church on trail no. 15, continuing across alpine pastures passing the Stations of the Cross.

At the first fork bear left on to trail no. 15A, and follow the same markings when you reach the forest road. At the next junction turn left and follow the signs to "Badia – Roda de Armentara". A gravel road leads up to Ranch da André and Pre Comun, the final climb.

From the Armentara meadows, head to Valacia, from where you go down through Razuns to the Valgiarëi farm. The hike is very enjoyable and not long. When you reach the junction, turn left and follow the signs to Badia – Roda de Armentara. Go past the Cialaruns and Ruac farms, and after about 30 minutes you reach the starting point for your hike.
