Family hike into the Val d’Anna

The Anna valley near Ortisei in the Val Gardena is a very popular family destination

On our way to the Val d'Anna we are driving through the wonderful landscape of the Dolomites, passing the Val di Fassa and Passo Sella. Arrived in Ortisei, we follow the signposts of the valley station of the Seceda Cable Car, where we park our car. The trail to the Val d'Anna starts in front of it, leading over a small bridge and finally following the small Rio Anna through the forest.

It is a comfortable trail with some nice benches and hammocks on its way. After about 20 minutes we cross another bridge and arrive at a huge meadow with playground offering both relaxation for adults and a lot of fun for children. Moreover, we are surrounded by a landscape of beautiful flower meadows and the wonderful mountain panorama of the Val Gardena with Mt Seceda.

Continuing our hike, we follow the trail back into the forest and arrive at the Pauli mountain hut after about 10 minutes. After a short rest and an ice-cream we start our way back. This time we follow the road instead of the forest trail and arrive at our starting point after about 20 minutes. At our left there is a tepee and the Adventure Park Col de Flam.

Please note: if you would like to do a longer hike, you can follow trail n° 6 from the Pauli mountain hut to the viewpoint Col de Flam and the St Jacob's Church, built in the 15th century, with its beautiful frescoes and a Baroque altar of the 18th century.
