Snowshoe hike to the Malga Lafez mountain hut

A sunny winter day in the Val Senales, off the busy skiing areas, amidst untouched nature – today we spend a day with snow shoeing to the Malga Lafez mountain hut.

Val Senales is famous for its glacier skiing area but also for plenty of other activities in winter. Like for example several routes for winter hikes and snow shoe tours. An easy snow shoe hike leads us to the Malga Lafez mountain hut, starting in the village of Madonna di Senales, at the pilgrimage church.

The path no. 19 starts quite narrow, it proceeds uphill and crosses soon a wide forest road. Here we suggest to follow the wide path which leads us straight to the Malga Lafez. The last section of the path is a bit narrower and early shadowy, at the finish the landscape opens again and we can feel the sun. Under the eaves of the Malga Lafez we enjoy our brought along provisions before we start our way back to Madonna di Senales along the same route.
