Passo Carezza/Costalunga (m 1745) - The original name is Carezza, which comes from the German dialect word "Kar", or bowl, indicating a concavity between the mountains. It lies 8 km from Vigo di Fassa, on a wide, grassy saddle between the slopes of the Latemar group and the outer reaches of the Catinaccio. An unforgettable thrill is the Enrosadira, when the rocks of the Catinaccio group turn rose-pink at sunset. It is from this incredible, natural spectacle that the legend of King Laurino and his fantastic rose garden took its cue. The German name for it is "Rosengarten".
Passo S. Pellegrino (1918 m) lies about 11 km from Moena and marks the border between Trentino and the province of Belluno. In summer there are numerous paths enriching both the slope of Costabella and the Monzoni Group as well as the area towards Col Margherita and Cima Bocche. In winter it is one of the most frequented ski areas, directly linked to the Trevalli ski circuit.
Passo Fedaia (2054 m) - You reach Passo Fedaia, having passed the village of Penia, the last village in the district of Canazei, and Pian Trevisan, a lush clearing within view of the Vernel. The name Fedaia derives from the Latin word "feda" meaning sheep. This area is a real paradise for enthusiasts of "off piste" skiing and climbing using sealskin shoes, while in summer it is an obligatory destination for excursion enthusiasts along the Italian-Austrian front line.
Sella (m 2244) - The Sella Group is as an enormous, compact, square block with sheer rock faces that rises up to 2950 m in the Dolomite mass of Sass Pordoi to the north-east. It is dominated by the beautiful grouping of the Torri del Sella and the long coralline barrier of the Msules.
Passo Pordoi (m 2239) - From Canazei along the tortuous, but scenic, "Strada delle Dolomiti" road featuring no less than 28 sharp bends you reach Passo Pordoi, marking the border between the provinces of Trento and Belluno. From the pass you have rapid access to the Bo Group using the very modern cable-car that in a few minutes reaches Sass Pordoi at 2950 m. above sea level. Sass Pordoi is an incredible, natural terrace where you have all-round views over the whole Alpine range.
