The Passo Sella will be closed to traffic every Wednesday from 9 am to 4 pm during the summer
An important contribution to the preservation of the sensitive natural environment on the mountain will be made in the name of the Unesco World Heritage every Wednesday this summer: the road to the Passo Sella will be closed to traffic. The project has been given the name #Dolomitesvives.
From the 5th of July to the 30th of August 2017, the road to the Passo Sella will be closed for all motorized vehicles every Wednesday from 9 am to 4 pm.
On the Val Gardena side, the road will be closed from the Miramonti junction (SS242/SS243) above Plan de Gralba, and on the Val di Fassa side, the road will be closed from the Passo Pordoi/Passo Sella junction (SS242/SS48).
On the #Dolomitesvives days, the roads will only be open for bicycles, pedestrians, electric vehicles and public busses. Two additional bus lines will be in operation from Plan de Gralba to the Passo Sella (every 15 minutes) on these days.
On these "#Dolomitesvives Wednesdays" guided hikes around the Passo Sella will be offered. Events celebrating the cuisine, music and history of the Ladin Dolomites, will allow visitors to experience the magic of this mountain region with all their senses. A "Taste Tour" that involves visits to six huts where delicacies conjured up by star chefs using the best regional ingredients can be tasted, as well as the chance to meet personalities from the Dolomites and enjoy concerts by local musicians.
The famous mountaineer, Reinhold Messner, will open the event on the 5th of July.

Cook The Mountain - Dolomites taste tour
In the mountain huts Comici, Passo Sella Dolomiti Mountain Resort and Salei or Valentini, Friedrich August and Des Alpes.
Sustainability has also to do with the dinner table. In six Dolomites mountain huts around the Pass, the six chefs offer a food and wine itinerary with complete respect for the environment. Selected products from the region will be interpreted in the most authentic manner by these chefs, for a unique experience, to taste – with an itinerary from mountain hut to mountain hut – the best of local flavours.
The voucher book for the complete tour (EUR 30.00 for 3 dishes in total, including one glass of wine with each dish, consumed at a different mountain hut) must be booked by 12 pm of the previous day at the address firstname.lastname@example.org. Payment and pick-up are possible on the same day of the event by no later than 11 am at the #Dolomitesvives Info point at Passo Sella. A single dish – accompanied by one glass of wine – can be purchased (EUR 15.00) directly at the mountain huts, as supplies last.
The event will take place even in the case of bad weather.
