The rocky pinnacles of the Pale di San Martino tower over this small Alpine capital, while thick woods and large meadows give the town its distinctive mountain feel. The town has long been attracting tourists from as far back as the mid 1800s, when the first English and German mountaineers came to this area.
It is an ideal destination for the whole family but also for those seeking a dynamic holiday packed with sports and fun. San Martino di Castrozza is set in a breathtaking landscape, surrounded by spectacular dolomitic peaks such as Cimon della Pala, Vezzana, Rosetta and Sass Maor.
San Martino di Castrozza, together with Passo Rolle, is a renowned ski resort that can offer unique emotions to all snow lovers. The Carosello delle Malghe (Dairy Hut Carousel), accessible through both the Ces and the Tognola lift facilities, provides 45 km of ski runs, perfect for a day of quality skiing and good food. In the Colverde area, within walking distance of the village centre, the homonymous cableway serves two tracks that are also lit up at night. In addition, lift facilities give visitors the opportunity to reach in a few minutes the Altopiano delle Pale, a true gem of the Paneveggio-Pale di San Martino Nature Park. This incredible plateau, suspended at 2700 metres altitude, is the ideal destination for those who are keen on mountaineering and snowshoe excursions or simply do not want to miss one of the most fascinating spectacles of nature.
