Sella Group

The Sella Group is situated in the east of Mt. Sassolungo and in the north of the highest summit of the Dolomites, Mt. Marmolada.

The Sella Group, a distinctive alpenstock in the Dolomites, is surrounded by the four Dolomite passes Passo Gardena, Passo Pordoi, Passo Sella and Passo di Campolongo. It is located partially on South Tyrolan territory and partially in the neighbouring provinces Trentino and Veneto.

The highest summit of the Sella Group - called Sellagruppe in German and Gruppo del Sella in Italian - is called Piz Boé (3,152 m a.s.l.), which is a very popular mountain, above all due to the fabulous view it provides on the Val di Fassa valley and its surroundings. Moreover it is one of the mountains of 3,000 m of the Dolomites that can be climbed rather easily, starting at the Passo Pordoi mountain pass. Other famous peaks are the Cima Pisciadù (2,985 m a.s.l.) and Mt. Piz da Lech de Boè (2,910 m a.s.l.).

Those who love climbing will be familiar with the Sella Pinnacles, which are among the most popular rock climbs in the Dolomites. Hikers, however, will enjoy the Dolomite High Route no. 2 taking them across this alpenstock. Furthermore this mountain range is world-famous due to the Sella Ronda, a ski route which takes you round the mountain group on 25 km of ski slopes, connecting the four Dolomite passes. In summer, the circuit is very popular with mountain bikers.
