Winter walk to the Rifugio Firenze in Cisles

Experience winter in the Puez Odle Nature Park at first hand – therefore this easy winter walk from Daunëi to the Rifugio Firenze in Cisles (Regensburger Hütte) is ideal.

This walking tour is also done with snow shoes quite often. Today the path is well-trodden and our snow shoes can stay in the car, but sturdy shoes are obligatory!
Our starting point is the small parking space above the farms of Daunëi near Selva di Val Gardena where we follow the marker no. 3 which proceeds lightly uphill. After about 40 minutes we reach the Juac mountain hut which usually is open during winter and we decide to take a short rest.

Path no. 3 leads us further up. Snowy clearings alternate with larch and Swiss pine forests and past the frozen Ciaulonch lake we finally reach our destination, the Rifugio Firenze in Cisles. This mountain hut is not open during winter but offers a gorgeous panoramic view: from Sassolungo to Sciliar, Stevia and Odle. Our way back proceeds along the same route.
