a photographic exhibition dedicated to the Alpine Guides of Cortina

The panoramic terrace of Cima Tofana

Reachable until 19 September starting from the center of Cortina thanks to Tofana – Freccia nel Cielo, Cima Tofana is the only Dolomite peak accessible by cable car. Do not miss the exhibition “Per Aspera ad Astra”
Cima Tofana is the only Dolomite peak accessible by cable car, the well-known Freccia nel Cielo which starts right from the center of Cortina d’Ampezzo. A majestic panoramic terrace from which to admire the Cortina basin and the Dolomite peaks stands on Cima Tofana (3,244 m) which can be reached directly from the town center thanks to the Tofana – Freccia nel Cielo lifts. It is certainly the point of arrival and departure of some of the most beautiful excursions and via ferratas in the Dolomites, and allows even the less experienced to reach the summit of Tofana di Mezzo, the third highest in the Dolomites, in just 10 minutes’ walk from the station of arrival of the cable car.
Being one of the symbolic places in the history of Ampezzo mountaineering, Cima Tofana hosts the photographic exhibition “Per Aspera ad Astra” set up inside the arrival station until 19 September: an exhibition dedicated to the birth of the Cortina Alpine Guides, that this year celebrates 150 years of a history that began with the appointment of Francesco Lacedelli, “Checo da Meleres” to accompany the famous Austrian mountaineer Paul Grohmann as a guide to discover the Dolomites and the Tofana di Mezzo on 20 August 1863.

It is a privileged point of view that allows you to enjoy a 360 ° view of the Dolomites even comfortably “lying down”, relaxing in the sun, between its panoramic terrace and the Cima Tofana Bar: a meeting and refreshment place that thanks to a functional wi-fi network can also become an unusual and spectacular location for smart working at high altitude.
