Fassa Valley – The Dolomites

Fassa Valley – The beginning of our journey to the Dolomites. After a good night sleep at Mariannas house we woke up early in the morning to do some shopping for our trip and hit the road from Trento to Fassa Valley.

After a few hours journey we arrived around 12 pm to Fassa Valley. We are only at the base of the mountains at around 1400m altitude yet the view is already amazing. The plan is to have a quick stop and have something to eat and then see weather we will go up to Campedie refuge by foot or take the cable car.

While we were eating it started to rain, so we decided to take the cable-car up to the refuge.

Campedie refuge – 2000m altitude. 

Walking through the forest of Vajolet we see some amazing views over the cliffs of the Dolomites. The rain is keeping up and by the time we got to the refuge Gardecia we were soaked wet.

We stopped for a quick brake to have a tea and warm up. In the meantime the rain stopped, so we took advantage of it and quickly went up to refuge Vajolet at 2240m. As high as we get the more difficult it gets, the rain is getting worst and worst, but after a few hours we arrive to the refuge and seek for a warm room to rest and warm up.

The rain created beautiful waterfalls falling off the cliffs and small streams flowing down the walking paths.

We found a tiny double bed room and a hot shower, all we needed.
