Marmolada, called the Queen of the Dolomites, rises in Val Pettorina, one of the most beautiful valleys of the upper section of the Cordevole stream. This area is well known by tourists, especially winter sport lovers, who every year stay in wonderful and cozy hotels situated close to the slopes and trekking trails.
Thanks to the large network of ski lifts connecting the Dolomiti Superski ski domain, here you can practice many different sports, like downhill and cross-country skiing, snowboarding, ice climbing, telemark skiing and ski mountaineering, besides enjoying exciting snowmobile tours and romantic horse-drawn sleigh rides.
You can have a lot of fun also in summer, since there are many charming trekking trails surrounded by a wonderful nature, and of course there is the delightful canyon Serrai of Sottoguda, connecting the hamlet of Sottoguda to Malga Ciapela.
The area of the Marmolada has also an historical relevance, and the Museum of the Great War is situated near the Serauta cableway station at 2950 m of altitude.
