Panoramic tour that touches part of the "Super 8" Ski Tour.

From "Arabba" it is easy to reach by going towards "Pralongià" and following the signs for "San Cassiano" - "Armetarola". From here there is a bus service that takes you to the "Falzarego" Pass in 15 minutes.

Arriving at the top of "Lagazuoi" with the "Lagazuoi" cable car, we recommend stopping at the panoramic terrace, which offers a 360° view of the Dolomites UNESCO World Heritage Site, and then descending via the "Armentarola", a unique path in an enchanting Dolomite landscape where you can admire the famous icefalls, until you reach the horses that will take you to the "Capanna Alpina" and then back to "Arabba".
