Turn-by-turn directions

The Dragon Forest during winter is an easy walk in the mountains for children and families. It is a loop path 1,4 km long, flat and accessible to everyone: the snow is groomed by a snowmobile. You start and arrive in the same point: not far from the cable car Predazzo-Gardonè.

The children’s walk across the snow lasts approximately one hour, there is no need to be accompanied. The path unwinds partly through the woods, it is sunny and panoramic. Look up and you will be able to admire the marvellous Latemar towers. 

The best way to discover the Dragon Forest in winter is by using the playbook GIOCOLIBRO: clues, riddles, short stories which develop your imagination.

Gardonè is situated in the Ski Center Latemar Ski resort , at an altitude of 1650m on the Dolomites, UNESCO heritage site.
