Exploring the slopes of Seceda | Dolomites, Italy
We waved goodbye to Cortina d’Ampezzo and after many turns and passes finally reached Val Gardena. Our next destination was a sloping mountain called Seceda. Placed above the Ortisei village in Val Gardena it is famous for its shape and also because in the winter these slopes transform into the longest ski slope in Val Gardena. To reach its top, you have to ride two successive cable cars (which will set you back for 30 euros per person). From there, you can explore the mountain with unlimited hikes. We loved spending our time there, but did only a quick hike to the edge of the mountain to see what is on the other side, because our legs (and to this point whole bodies) were already pretty sore from all the hikes we did this week. We spent the majority of time eating lasagna and drinking Aperol Spritz on the top of the mountain and sighing at the gorgeous views.
Here you can watch our gopro timelapse video of the road from Alta Badia to Val Gardena and try to count how many twists and turns we had to overcome to reach Seceda. 🙂
