Realm of the Giant Baranci

In the 3 Peaks Dolomites region, an impressive journey through Giant Baranci’s Kingdom and the Dwarf Village awaits you

A few minutes' walk from the centre of San Candido village, the four-seater chairlift starts on Mount Baranci. The popular excursion destination is not only the starting point for numerous easy hikes, but also offers several attractions for families right at the mountain station. Everything here revolves around Giant Baranci's Kingdom - "Riesenreich Haunold" in German, "Regno del Gigante Baranci" in Italian - , and this already starts at the eponymous mountain hut at 1,650 m a.s.l., where Giant's Baranci Kids' Party is celebrated every Friday in summer.

You can also discover the new Realm of the Giant Baranci on the Giant's Realm Circular Trail. This also includes the Dwarf Village with rustic tree houses and suspension bridges, the "Dwarf Course" high ropes course and the Barefoot Lakes. Actually, it was a little child who once drank from a miraculous spring and became strong as a bear afterwards... And at the end of the day the Fun Bob summer toboggan run is a good alternative for the descent! In winter then, the Monte Baranci turns into one of the wonderful ski mountains of the 3 Zinnen Dolomites Ski Resort.
