The striking Sella alpenstock dominates the landscape in Alta Badia - it is famous above all for the Sella Ronda
The Gruppo del Sella group in the Dolomites is surrounded by the Passo Gardena, the Passo Pordoi, the Passo Sella and the Passo Campolongo. The world-famous Sella Ronda overcomes in summer (bicycle) as well as in winter (skis) these four Dolomite passes and ranks among the most beautiful and popular round tours in the Alps. Numerous refuges will warmly welcome you, some of which are the Rif. Boè, Rif. Franz Kostner al Vallon and Rif. Maria mountain huts. The latter is located near the mountain station of the majestic Mt. Sass Pordoi.
The highest peak of the Sella Group is the 3,152 m high Piz Boè, very popular due to its easy ascent. The Sella Towers, located near the Sella Pass in the western part of the mountain massiv, are a particular challenge for all climbers. Moreover, the Dolomite High Route no. 1 snakes its way through this mountain range. The Sella Group extends over 7 km from north to south and over 9.5 km from east to west. It is surrounded by the Puez Group in the north, the Sassolungo Group in the west and the Fanes Group in the east.
