Winter walk to Lake Calaita

The small high plateau above the Lozen valley, between the Cima Scanaiol and Mt Spiz del Doch, offers a fantastic view on the Pala Group

At the end of the road which proceeds up from Canal San Bovo, a parking space is located, today starting point of our short walking tour. In front of the Miralago Calaita mountain inn (opened on weekends in winter) the winter hiking path starts towards north. After few hundred metres the path and the cross country ski track separate.

The wide path proceeds along the lake and across meadows, it is almost flat without any difficulties. After about 1.5 km we reach the forest. If we carried on walking towards north, we would come to San Martino di Castrozza. But today our hike leads us right along to a lookout where we enjoy a gorgeous view on the Pale di San Martino mountain group with the Sass Maor. For our way back we take the same route.

Please note: snow shoes can be rented at the mountain inn (on weekends), but it is not necessary for this walking tour. You can extend the winter hike towards San Martino di Castrozza or on the surrounding mountains.
