Winter hike to the Malga dei Dossi Mountain Hut

This easy winter hiking tour leads through the beautiful snowy landscape of the Valle dei Dossi near Riva di Tures.

Driving to Riva di Tures, we cross the village until we reach the Dossi parking space, where we leave our car. From here, we start our hiking tour through the Valle dei Dossi to the Malga dei Dossi, crossing the beautiful Vedrette di Ries - Aurina nature park. Despite the cold temperatures the small Dossi stream is not frozen yet and its roaring accompanies us on most of our way.

A broad forest road leads us gently upwards until we soon reach a small plateau and continue our hiking tour enjoying breathtaking views of the surrounding snow-capped mountain peaks. From here, we hike upwards to the Malga dei Dossi at 1,922 metres a.s.l., where we enjoy a hot drink. The Malga dei Dossi is open also during the winter months. We decide to rent a sledge instead of going back by foot.
