Varmost

From the Alpine farm you can enjoy a magnificent view over the Friulian Dolomites, which have been recently classified as world heritage by UNESCO. In Forni di Sopra you can discover the secrets of drug plants and of the autochthonous vegetation by walking along the "Sentiero dei bambini" (Children's Trail), visiting the botanical garden and the visitor centre. While climbing the easy Monte Simone the view gets richer, allowing the eyes to roam from the Antelao to the Three Peaks of Lavaredo, from the Pesarine Dolomites to the Clap Savon-Bivera mountain group. In Prat di Got Late Roman, high-medieval and medieval fortifications were unearthed.

And then...

Continuing Eastward, on the right of the hut, a thick network of well-marked trails maintained by the CAI section of Forni di Sopra (CAI trail no. 211) allows hikers to reach the Tartoi, Tragonia, Montemaggiore Alpine farms and the Aip hut, then to descend to Forni di Sopra; keeping North, a comfortable mule track takes you to the Lavazeit hut (CAI trail no. 207).

Before climbing up to the Alpine farm, you can visit Forni di Sopra, with its characteristic hamlet of Vico, a member of the "Club dei borghi autentici d'Italia". An adventure park for the children's entertainment is also here. Forni di Sotto boasts interesting 19th-century fountains in the hamlets of Tredolo, Baselia, and Vico. Both municipalities are popular summer and winter holiday resorts.
