Sellaronda Circuit

The Sellaronda circuit develops around the Sella Massifs and its 4 Dolomite passes. Starting from Cortina the passes become 5, including Passo Falzarego. It is probably the most amazing ski tour in the world and can be easily done in one day.

Starting from Cortina, drive along the SS48, and take the Lagazuoi cable-car, located 17 Km from Cortina centre. Parking is free of charge.

From Mt Lagazuoi, descend along the charming Armentarola ski run until you reach San Cassiano, Piz Sorega and Piz la Ila first, and then continue towards Corvara. Here is where the actual circuit starts and can be travelled in both directions: clockwise (orange signs) and anti-clockwise (green signs). We recommend travelling it anti-clockwise.

From Corvara ride the gondola to Colfosco. A short ride on the Plans-Frara gondola takes you up to Malga Cir above Passo Gardena. From here, take the Val Setus chairlift up to 2280 m and then descend to Passo Gardena. Ride the next chairlift up to Dantercepies and ski down to Selva. Here, the Ciampinoi high-speed gondola takes you up the namesake mountain to ski down to Plan de Gralba-Piz Seteur. Ride the Sassolungo chairlift, and through the spectacular “Città dei Sassi” you reach Passo Sella. Take the Sasso Levante chairlift and then descend along Val Salei, then ride Pian Frataces gondola followed by the chairlift towards Sas Becè. After a long and fun descent, you reach Arabba to take the chairlift up to Bec the Roces. From here a leisurely and enjoyable run takes you to Passo Campolongo. Follow directions to Rifugio Cherz first and Rifugio Pralongià to then end up at the bottom of Armentarola where the taxi will take you back to Passo Falzarego.
