You will reach by public transport or by car the bottom of the Sassolungo (Passo Sella). From here, one of the oldest gondolas in Val Gardena will take you to the top of the forcella of the Sassolungo to the Toni Demetz refuge at 2685 meters above the sea level. The path up to that point can be covered on foot (about 1 hour). With a little luck you can observe marmots. At the top you could experience the Dolomites in there whole splendor and enjoy the wonderful view. The walk takes you through the rocks to the refuge Vicenza. The path 526 leads you back to the starting point again. The path leads past the refuge Comici, by the Stone City where climbers can be observed in the first experiments.
