Snowalking in paradise-like valleys

There are many snowwalking options in Val Badia but there is one which is particularly suitable for those who love to meditate and be in close contact with Nature.
The route starts from Lungiarü in the municipality of San Martino, a quiet village which maintains a traditional farming culture in its daily village life, and it is a place where peace prevails and the only sign of anything energetic is a sledge run!
Snowalking in paradise-like valleys
“There exist places where silence itself can be appreciated, where the only sounds you hear are those of Nature.”
Setting out on foot from the village square you head south and follow the sign for “Seres-valle dei mulini”. Continuing uphill and passing by barns you come to the area of Viles di Seres, you leaving behind on your right the agritur “Lüch de Vanch”. Next, turn left and follow the shared access road in a slightly downhill direction until you come to a crossroad point with various signs and directions.
Reaching here you can follow the snowwalking route by taking path number 5 “Forcella de Furcia- Kreuzjoch” and after 7km you arrive ar the “Furcia” hut. The route is only slightly uphill and is not very demanding. It crosses woodland and gives you the chance to take in and enjoy the beauty of the Antersass Group. After about 4km the valley opens up and you can see Furcia de Madagles Pass, and to your left the peak of Puez e Piz Duleda (3000 m). After a further 3km you come to the Furcia hut itself and will be a ready for a rest. You can admire the wood-fuelled stove and try the “Kaiserschmarren” and a glass of mulled wine. Moving on from the hut you go to your left for 300 metres and you come to Furcia Pass (2293 m), and from here you can marvel at Val Funes itself, and you can also note to your left the Brogles- Resciesa mountain hut, the “Corno” of Renon, and the Sarentine Alps.
To return you come back the way you came and when you pass near to horseriding stables you turn to your left and proceed to Lungiarü. The total walk from Lungiarü to Furcia Pass is 18 km with a difference in altitude ofi 870 metres and the total round route takes about 5-6 hours ; it is best to dedicate a whole day to the excursion so that you can take your time and enjoy the landscape to the full and appreciate the particular quiet and silence of your surrounds.
It really is a magical place.
