Val di Fiemme
Val di Fiemme is one of the main valleys in Italian Dolomites, and it is located in the eastern part of Trentino. With its 11 towns the valley is surrounded by such mountains as the well-known chain Lagorai (Catena del Lagorai), Pale di San Martino, and the group of Latemar (il gruppo del Latemar). In addition, the valley of Val di Fiemme is stretched between two national parks - nature reserves Paneveggio - Pale di San Martino and Monte Corno. Although these parks are next to each other, they are very different in represented species of flora and fauna.
Most of the Val di Fiemme is occupied by woodlands that are hundreds years old. These forests improve the air quality and climate here. A typical alpine landscape in Val di Fiemme is characterized mainly by coniferous forests. Some trees reach 50 meters in height, 6 meters in circumference and a trunk volume of up to 25/30 cubic meters – which is the amount of wood needed to build a small house. Almost all the forests in Val di Fiemme are owned by municipalities and Magnificent community of Fiemme ("Magnifica Comunità di Fiemme") - an ancient institution of Langobardic reminiscence that from 1100 to 1800 was a kind of a small republic within the principality of Trento. Val di Fiemme stands for the protection of the environment by organizing a large number of activities amongst its municipalities. Thanks to the beauty of the valley, Valle di Fiemme has become over the last years one of the main tourist attractions in the province of Trento.
The name Val di Fiemme is inextricably linked with two major sporting events of the international level: Italian ski marathon Marcialonga - a competition on narrow skis for a distance of 70 kilometers, which every year on the last Sunday of January is attended by more than five thousand skiers, and also World Championship in cross country skiing.
Five ski areas and two centers for cross-country skiing are available to guests in the winter. In Alpe Cermis there is a black run Olympia of more than 7500 m long with an elevation drop of 1350 m. Ski Centre Latemar includes the towns Pampeago, Predazzo and Obereggen and it’s equipped with 17 lifts and 50 km of ski runs. In general, Val di Fiemme offers 150 kilometers of runs for cross-country skiing.
Equally impressive is the selection of runs for downhill skiing. Using a single ski pass you can ski more than 102 km of ski runs, 57 of which are served by an artificial snow system. Ski areas for snowboarders also offer great modern runs.
In the valley of Val di Fiemme, near the resort Predazzo, there is also a modern stadium for ski jumping with five jumps (one of which is 120 meters long), where international competitions are held.
To satisfy the needs of the true sports fans, both locals and tourists alike, Valle di Fiemme features many sports facilities (gyms, indoor swimming pools, a sports palace, ice rinks, tennis courts, etc.). And as for guests who want to have fun, there are plenty of fine local restaurants, bars, cinemas, nightclubs, bowling, sauna and many other venues. After visiting these great places you will not be bored during day or night.
