Piz Boè

With a height of 3,152 m a.s.l., Mt. Piz Boè is the highest peak and the only three-thousander of the Sella Group

The "easiest three-thousander of the Dolomites" is a well-known destination: the hike from the mountain station of the Vallon Chairlift (after the ascent by the Boè Funicular) to the top of Mt. Piz Boè takes about 2 hours. The route leads past the Rif. Franz Kostner al Vallon mountain hut, the last section is classified as difficult. Also the Piazzetta Route proceeds to the top, one of the most difficult via ferrata routes of the Dolomites which partly overcomes vertical rock faces.

Further possibilities to reach the top include the hike from the 2,950 m high Mt. Sass Pordoi as well as the Brigata Tridentina, Lichtenfels and Vallon Routes - all of them are classified easier than the Piazzetta Route. The magnificent panoramic view includes the most famous Dolomite peaks such as the Fanes Group, Mt. Marmolada, the Catinaccio Massif and Mt. Sassolungo.

Since the Sixties, the Rif. Capanna Fassa has been located on the 3,152 m high summit in the Sella Group. The private refuge, one of the highest located mountain huts of the Dolomites, offers also overnight stays. Furthermore, every year the area is venue of the "Dolomites Skyrace", a mountain run leading athletes in less than an hour from Canazei in the Val di Fassa valley up to 3,000 m a.s.l.
