    Family hiking tour into the Val d’Anna: the Val d’Anna near Ortisei is a very popular family destination.

    Resciesa: on the way up from Ortisei to the top of the mountain you can enjoy for 8 minutes the wonderful flora and fauna of the wood which lies on 2.200 meters. Here the nature and the quiet are unbelievable. From the top, on the nudge terrace of the restaurant you can admire the Sella, the Marmolada, the Lankofel and the Schlern. These mountains will really impress you.

    The trail to the Val d’Anna starts in front of the valley station, leading over a small bridge and finally following the small Anna brook through the forest. It is a comfortable hiking trail with some nice benches and hammocks on its way. After about 20 minutes we cross another bridge and arrive at a huge meadow with playing ground offering both relaxation for adults and a lot of fun for children. Moreover, we are surrounded by a landscape of beautiful flower meadows and the wonderful mountain panorama of the Val Gardena with Mount Seceda and Mount Rasciesa. Continuing our hiking tour, we follow the trail back into the forest and arrive at the Pauli mountain hut after about 10 minutes. After a short rest and an ice-cream we start our way back. This time we follow the road instead of the forest trail and arrive at our starting point after about 20 minutes. At our left there is a teppee and a high ropes course.
