Alpe Lusia - Animals' Path

Photo from:

The animal path "Nest sweet nest" at Alpe Lusia is punctuated by hidden statues, funny games and riddles, take a sneak peek in the houses of these nice animals! The nest is the file rouge connecting the entire path with stories about the local fauna.

From the upstream station of the cabin lift "Le Cune" (2,200 m) starts the themed path "Nest, sweet nest". It is a quite easy trial across woods towards "Valbona" at 1,820 m. From "Le Cune" (arrival of the second cabin lift) following the path no. 614 along the ski run, down to the hollow at the foot of mount "Viezzena" you will find the houses of a group of marmots. After the crossroad follow the sign no. 622 at left and cross a moraine with monumental threes bent by the avalanches. Out of the wood pass by the pasture and near the dairy Malga Pozza take the path in the wood which will connect to path no. 614 ("Troi di Soldai - Solders path") to reach "Valbona".
