Snowshoe excursion | Rifugio Città di Fiume

This simple route is suitable for everyone, especially beginners.


By climbing up to the Rifugio Città di Fiume you can enjoy the panorama of some of the most evocative peaks of the Dolomites: Monte Pelmo, Marmolada, Croda da Lago, Lastoi del Formin.
The route runs on a wide dirt road (467) and is marked very clearly. Whether you snowshoe or walk, the snow is generally well-packed; you will hike amidst dwarf pine trees and pastures up to the Malga Fiorentina, where the landscape opens up onto the valley of the same name.
From the alpine hut continue keeping to the right and after walking a few minutes through larch woods, you get to the Rifugio Città di Fiume, at the foot of Monte Pelmo.


You can also go up (or down) following some interesting alternative routes on the open area below the slopes of the Val d'Arcia (beware of possible avalanche danger!). From the parking area, you can reach trail 472 to the refuge or get to the forcella Forata and from there to the mountain hut.
Although these routes are often marked, do not underestimate them. They are much more challenging than a classic climb.
