The 2,121 m high Passo Gardena separates the Puez Group in the western Dolomites from the Sella Group.
Between the Val Gardena in the south, the Val Badia in the east and the Campill valley in the north, the Puez Group with Mt Stevia and the famous Puez Peaks is located. The high plateau-like mountain group is split on the municipal areas of Santa Cristina, Selva Gardena, Corvara, Badia and San Martino in Badia.
At all seasons of the year, the Puez Group offers gorgeous excursion destinations and hiking possibilities. The Gardenaccia Plateau is well-known for the ammonite findings. Popular mountain huts, like the Puez mountain hut or the Firenze in Cisles hut invite to have a break.
Together with the north-west located Odle Group, the Puez Group often is mentioned as Puez-Odle-Group. Together they form the same-named nature park, a 10,722 hectares large protected area of extraordinary beauty.
