• Private daily Tour: Mount Seceda and Funes Valley

    The most famous photos of the western Dolomites on the same day

    Do you want a picture of your own in these world famous locations? Well, this is the tour for you!
    Indeed, during this tour you will reach the exact panoramic points from where you can take the famous photos and where you can contemplate the magnificence of the Dolomites.

    Mount Seceda

    Mount Seceda is located on the sunny side of Val Gardena, in the middle of the Dolomites, a UNESCO World Natural Heritage Site.
    It is the highest panoramic point in Val Gardena that can be reached with the lifts: 2,520 metres/8,300 feet above sea level.
    From the center of the splendid town of Ortisei, thanks to a tunnel with escalators and Tapis Roulant, you can reach the cable car station in a few minutes, where a  double cable car departs that will take you to the top of the Seceda. From the top station of the cable car, if you wish, you can reach by walking the panoramic terrace in less than half an hour with a spectacular 360-degree view of the Odle group and various other peaks of the Dolomites.

    The 2 small churches in the Funes Valley

    After admiring the Odle Dolomites from Val Gardena you can admire the same mountains from the opposite side, i.e. from the idyllic Val di Funes.
    You will realize how different the same mountain can look if you look at it from different positions.
    It is in the Val di Funes that, a short distance from each other, are the 2 churches that have become so famous above all thanks to Instagram.
    From the panoramic terrace you will first admire the small church of San Giovanni in Ranui and then we will instead have to walk about 25 minutes to reach the exact position where there is a bench (the bench of contemplation) from where to take the famous image of the small church of Santa Maddalena.
