Safety information:

Experience walking along irregular mountain trails is recommended. In the event of fresh snow, microspikes are also recommended. Be careful of ice when temperatures are particularly low.

Please note that the practicability of the itineraries in a mountain environment is strictly linked to the contingent conditions and is therefore influenced by natural phenomena, environmental changes and weather conditions. For this reason, the information contained in this page may have changed. Before leaving for a tour, make sure the path you will approach is still accessible by contacting the owner of the mountain hut, the alpine guides or the visitor centres of the nature parks, the info offices of the local tourist board.

Turn-by-turn directions

The Dragon Forest during winter is an easy walk in the mountains for children and families. It is a loop path 1,5 km long, flat and accessible to everyone: the snow is groomed by a snowmobile. You start and arrive in the same point: not far from the cable car Predazzo-Gardonè.

The children’s walk across the snow lasts approximately one hour, there is no need to be accompanied. The path unwinds partly through the woods, it is sunny and panoramic. Look up and you will be able to admire the marvellous Latemar towers. 

The best way to discover the Dragon Forest in winter is by using the playbook GIOCOLIBRO: clues, riddles, short stories which develop your imagination.

Gardonè is situated in the Ski Center Latemar Ski resort , at an altitude of 1650m on the Dolomites, UNESCO heritage site.
