On the edge of Val di Fiemme, this short and easy hike leads you to discover the pastures full of flowers and a fantastic "balcony" overlooking Val di Fiemme.

Malga Sass welcomes you with its outdoor wooden tables, after driving the road that from Valfloriana climbs gradually steeper and narrower.

On foot, in about half an hour, you reach "Pradi da le Fior", a mountain pasture that preserves an exceptional view of  Val di Fiemme, from the town of Le Ville (Carano, Daiano, Varena) up to Corno Nero and Pala di Santa peaks. Located at 2000 meters, it is an authentic flowered balcony, full of flowers, surrounded by rhododendrons, where everything invites you to a picnic break. You are at the highest point of the itinerary; the walk then proceeds slightly up and down to Malga Coston, the historic Valfloriana pasture, now renovated, dating back to the early 1800s. Finally, the path leads back to Malga Sass.

The entire itinerary is distinguished by the quiet environment, the enchanting flower glades and the integrity of the larch, spruce and Swiss pine woods.

Author’s recommendation

Malga Sass takes part in the "Albe in malga" initiative, to experience first-hand the activities and the world of mountain pastures. An unforgettable experience for the whole family!

Malga Sass

Turn-by-turn directions

From the Malga Sass - Malga Buse del Sasso (Alpine dairy - 1.906 m) in Valfloriana take the forest road, closed to traffic, which climbs gently into an unspoiled natural environment filled with flower-dotted clearings and woods of larches, spruces and Swiss pines.

After a few hundred metres this leads to a wooden little statue of the Virgin Mary  with a drinking trough and fountain.

The final stretch of this road passes through the open meadows over Malga del Coston (Alpine dairy) to end at 2.015 metres, at a point offering an unexpected view out over Val di Fiemme.

Continue on your left to reach Malga del Coston (1.631 m) and then follow the flat path which leads you back to Malga Sass.

Salve passeggiata molto bella fino al raggiungimento del Pradi da le fior ( altezza 2200 metri ) , il problema lo abbiamo trovato nel tratto di ritorno in quanto il sentire non esiste più( sotto bosco ricoperto da alberi caduti, rami ecc) probabilmente a causa della tempesta Vaia. Consigliamo molta attenzione!!!!

La parte che porta al punto panoramico è molto facile, consigliata anche a chi ha bimbi davvero piccoli, la parte invece che porta a Malga del Coston è un po’ più impervia. Consiglio di fermarsi a mangiare a Malga Sass, dove abbiamo potuto mangiare un tagliere di formaggi e salumi davvero eccellente, e grande simpatia e disponibilità da parte del gestore, Roberto “Bat”, che ringrazio per la splendida giornata
