A natural paradise at the gateway to the Puez-Geisler nature park

Val Badia enjoys international acclaim thanks to the Dolomites - a UNESCO World Natural Heritage site and to the ski resorts of Kronplatz and Alta Badia. Despite this, this idyllic valley in Südtirol also possesses some less well-known jewels within its territory and due to their relative limited popularity they represent the maximum expression of the Ladin traditions and the nature of the Dolomites. The village of Longíarù, Longiarü in Ladin is situated at 1,400 m a.s.l. and is an enchanting place. Here you can still feel the history and the traditions of Val Badia.

At Longiarù you can still perceive the century-old links between man and nature. The village in the district of San Martino in Badia offers a unique backdrop for those who love nature and sporty activities in close contact with nature. At Longiarù you'll find the peacefulness of the mountains, the beauty of the Dolomite landscape, Südtirol's special culinary prowess and the possibility to experience authenticity first-hand far away from the stress of everyday life. And all of this without having to forego proximity to the slopes of Kronplatz or Alta Badia, both reachable by ski bus.

The Sasso Putia round is possibly the most practical excursion in and around Longiarù. We'd recommend going to the carpark after the residential area at Vi in Longiarù by car and then continuing on to Göma (2,111 m) by taking path nr. 9 with a view of Sasso Putia and of Sasso Croce mountains from the other side. Descending from Göma you reach the meadows of Passo delle Erbe and then an ascent brings you to Furcela di Pütia (2,357 m). The more daring can climb to the peak of Pütia (2,875 m). We'd like to inform you that the last section includes a short but easy fixed-rope climb. The excursion is completed by passing by the meadows at Cialneur and Vasiara with the characteristic mountain huts of Val Badia.

This demanding excursion brings you to the heart of the Puez-Geisler nature park to Puez hut – 2,475 m. Having reached Antersasc hut path nr. 6 crosses a tight gap in the rocks during an ascent and from here there's a slight descent to the hut. For the descent there are several options, for those who are fit we'd recommend heading to Forcella Nives, up to Pid Duleda 2,909 m and then cross the Forcela dla Roa to reach the Fontanacia meadows and from there descend down towards the village of Longiarù.
