Pozza is located at the foot of the Cime Undici and Dodici and the Monzoni group of volcanic origin and is surrounded by some of the most fascinating and famous mountains of the Dolomites such as the Vajolet Towers and the Catinaccio. Together with the other municipalities of the area it constitutes a linguistic oasis where Ladin is still spoken.
Pozza di Fassa is a town in the Val di Fassa, popular with both winter and summer tourism.
During the summer season Pozza di Fassa is one of the best starting points for those who want to go hiking towards the various mountain huts or go up to the peaks.
Those who love trekking can find trails that are both challenging and within everyone’s reach.
The best known routes are those that lead to the nearby Val Monzoni where you can reach the mountain hut of the same name and the refuge, and the routes can also be traveled on a mountain bike.
The nearby Val San Nicolò is of great charm, dotted with huts, which can also be reached by those who are not trained.
Also from Pozza you can get (by cable car) to Buffaure, from here go up to Passo San Nicolò with the chairlift and then walk on the ridge to admire both sides of the mountain which are a truly unforgettable sight.
From the hamlet of Pera di Fassa you can reach the foot of the Catinaccio and if you prefer to take a leap into a place that has not yet been touched by tourism and that still maintains the characteristic features of the mountain village there is the characteristic hamlet of Moncion.
In winter Pozza di Fassa turns into a very popular ski resort where it is possible to practice cross-country skiing with different rings that differ in the degree of difficulty (beginners, experts) and which also allow you to travel a stretch of the legendary Marcialonga route.
For downhill lovers it is possible to ski on the Buffaure group, and also to ski at night there is the Aloch slope at the Ski Stadium which offers ideal tracks for international competitions.
And for the evenings? Always guaranteed fun. Both summer and winter shows of different kinds are set up and there is no shortage of typical clubs and pubs.
