Welcome to the heart of the Sassolungo

Suggested hikes

Coming from the PASSO SELLA (by hiking or by lift), once you reach the RIFUGIO TONI DEMETZ you can do the following excursion:
Circle around the SASSOLUNGO: Follow path 525 that leads to the Rifugio Vicenza continuing along the right side of the SASSOLUNGOon path 526 .
You will get back to the PASSO SELLA from where you started (approx. 3-4 hours).
Instead of turning right after the Rifugio Vicenza you can also proceed left on path 527 and then along the path called Friedrich August Weg (4-557), and you will reach the PASSO SELLA, too. (approx. 5 hours)

Santa Cristina to Rifugio Toni Demetz:
Start in Santa Cristina (Monte Pana), easy walk (path 30) to the foot of the SASSOLUNGO. As the route steepens, take the path 525 past the Rifugio Vicenza and continue upwards on path 525 through the dramatic rock scenery to the RIFUGIO TONI DEMETZ.
A thrilling landscape is waiting for you there with stunning views of Sella, Marmolada, Civetta, Monte Pelmo, and many other majestic mountains.

*Of course these excursions can be done in reverse.
