Destination

Passo Feudo - Predazzo

Turn-by-turn directions

Latemar’s rocks and fossils tell the tale of a tropical sea and large volcanoes in the area that is now the Dolomites.

If you want to travel back in time to 250 million years ago, take the Dolomite Geological Trail from Passo Feudo.

The easiest part of this route arrives at Passo di Tresca, along trail no. 515. This hike, which is suitable for children, takes an hour and a half, and is dotted with display boards.

But what will make you a proper young researcher is the kit and booklet (€ 6,00) you will be given at Gardoné, making your hike a fascinating adventure with tests, quizzes and games.

If you manage to complete the mission, you will receive a small prize at the end.
