Enjoy a selection of itineraries to immerse yourself in nature and discover some of the most enchanting corners of Cortina d'Ampezzo, including alpine lakes, rivers, springs, canyons, and waterfalls. You will discover some surprising views along paths that wind through gentle climbs and descents, run along waterfalls, gorges, and rivulets, and admire the variety of landscapes and habitats offered by Cortina. The numerous alpine lakes – nestled in the Ampezzo valley like pearls of intense colours, in shades of blue, turquoise, and green water – make these places even more magical and offer unforgettable sights, different every day.

In the spring season, these paths become even more magical, thanks to the abundant melted waters, the bracing air, and the stunning contrast between the green blooming meadows and the white-powdered peaks. In autumn, Mother Earth gradually paints the Ampezzo valley in warmer tones, choosing charming shades of red, orange, and golden yellow that will take your breath away.
