Passo San Pellegrino is an authentic peaceful oasis for families who wish to spend their holidays relaxing and enjoying nature.
All the hotels stand out for their friendly family atmosphere and are well organized to host children, offering services and entire areas that are kid friendly: mini clubs with entertainment, play areas, baby pools, and for our youngest guests, cribs, changing tables, children’s tableware and the possibility to warm up specific food. Add to all this a busy schedule of outdoor activities and learning workshops, and you have a holiday that’s perfect for the entire family.
The territory provides a wide network of trails suited to everyone for exciting walks or mountain bike rides. Particularly worth doing are the easy walks to Rifugio Flora Alpina (1800 m) in the splendid Valfredda and to Malga San Pellegrino (1900 m). Those who want more of a climb will definitely appreciate a hike to Baita Paradiso (2130 m) and to Rifugio Passo delle Selle (2530 m).
Col Margherita is the ideal starting point for high altitude excursions because it is easily accessible by cable lift. There is also a fantastic play park where kids can play while their parents enjoy a marvellous 360° view of the Dolomites, a UNESCO Natural World Heritage, from the two scenic balconies found along the trail that goes to Cima Juribrutto, scene of bitter battles during the Great War which left traces that can still be seen today. These observation points are equipped with benches, binocular scopes and panels illustrating information on the surrounding peaks and their geological descriptions. The first one faces north over the valley of San Pellegrino, joining the Latemar group in a sort of virtual embrace with the Marmolada, while the other one faces south in the direction of the Pale di San Martino, inviting the gaze to sweep between the Marmolada and the Lagorai chain.
Passo San Pellegrino is also the right place for people who love the mountain-lake combination, thanks to three beautiful bodies of water where you can fish or settle along the banks for a picnic. It’s just a few minutes’ walk through a beautiful cedar and ash forest to arrive at San Pellegrino Lake and to Pozze Lake, while to get to Cavia Lake you need to go up the Col Margherita and take a nice walk downhill along a dirt road that lasts about an hour and a half.
