6. Seceda Ridgeline Hike

At over 2,500 m (8,200 ft), Seceda is the highest point in Val Gardena.

A wild ride all the way all the way through

Seceda is one of the most beloved mountains in the Odle mountain group, located in the Puez-Odle Nature Park. Every day, hikers flock to this 2,500-meter (8,200 feet) peak to enjoy the arresting views of the Val Gardena region below and walk along its staggering ridgeline.

This panoramic point-to-point hike cuts across a steeply sloping plain that abruptly culminates in a series of gigantic peaks that jut out toward the sky at sharp angles, resembling a mountain cracked in half by some unimaginable force. The views are so magnificent you’ll have to remind yourself to keep moving and not stand still with your mouth agape.

To complete a loop on the Seceda ridgeline, you’ll hike towards a memorable lookout point, then slowly descend towards the Pieraloniga mountain hut, a popular break spot. From there, Trail 13B will take you to Rifugio Firenze, a pastoral oasis where cows peacefully graze under the watchful eye of the Dolomites. Trail 1 takes you on an uphill hike through alpine pastures and back to the Seceda cable car.
