Odle Group

Between the Val di Funes and the Val Gardena valleys, in the heart of the eponymous nature park, there is the Odle Group

The main peak of this famous mountain massif is Mt. Sass Rigais, which is 3,025 m high - like the neighbouring Furchetta. The Sass Rigais can be scaled both from the Val Gardena and the Val di Funes, via a fixed-rope route starting in Santa Maddalena di Funes or in Santa Cristina Valgardena. Other important peaks are Mt. Sass da l'Ega (2,924 m a.s.l.), Mt. Sas de Mesdì (2,762 m a.s.l.), the Funes Pinnacle (2,834 m a.s.l.), Mt. Odla di Valdussa (2,936 m a.s.l.) and the Big Fermada and the Small Fermeda. Due to their high portion of lime, they are also known as "White Mountains".

The Odle Group or Geislergruppe is also perfect for hikes and alpine tours. In the southeast of this mountain range there is the Puez Group - these two mountain groups are eponymous for the Puez-Odle Nature Park. The tours in this area extend in all seasons and include a return by sledge in winter as well as a stop at one of the cosy huts in summer. Among them there are, for example, the hike through the Puez-Odle Nature Park, the hike to the Odle Mountain Hut, the mountain tour across the Forcella della Roa and Forcella di Mesdì, and the ski tour to Mount Col di Poma.
