Fanes Group

The mighty Fanes Group rises around the legendary Fanes Plateau in the Dolomites

The Fanes Group, east of the Val Badia valley, a mountain group of the Dolomites, extends until the Braies Dolomites in the northeast. Eastern and southern parts of the group are located in the Italian Province of Belluno, all the rest can be found in South Tyrol and is protected in the Fanes-Senes-Braies Nature Park.

The Fanes Group consists of numerous three-thousand-metre peaks, the highest one is the Piz Cunturines with 3,064 m a.s.l. Further significant mountains are the Sasso delle Dieci (3,026 m) and Cima Nove (2,968 m), Piz Lavarela (3,055 m), Fanesspitzen and Monte Cavallo (2,911 m). Famous mountain huts in the area are the Rif. Fanes (2,060 m) and the Rif. Lagazuoi (2,778 m), one of the highest located mountain huts of the Dolomites.

The mountain group is named after the Fanes alpine pastures at more than 2,000 m. Here the “Realm of the Fanes” with Princess Dolasilla is located, many Ladin legends grow around her. The high plateau is a famous hiking destination in summer while in winter the mountain group invites to spectacular ski tours.
