Stage 27: from Farra d’Alpago to Nevegal

This stage, one of the most challenging, but also one of the most scenic of the entire Way of the Dolomites, starts from the center of Farra d'Alpago, where we recommend a visit to the parish church which houses some works of art of the sculptor Andrea Brustolon born in Belluno (1662 – 1732). You will then reach in a few minutes the shores of Lake Santa Croce and the path that runs along the lake.

Once in Poiatte, ideal destination for windsurfers, kitesurfers and sailers, walk along the road for about 2 km reaching the crossroad that leads to the village of Santa Croce del Lago featuring one of the most interesting churches in the area located atop a hill overlooking the lake and characterized by important findings on the facade.

Continue along the CAI 950 path walking up the slopes of Mount Nevegal, enjoying magnificent views over Lake Santa Croce and Alpago. Leaving the path that leads to the former Brigata Alpina Cadore shelter, continue up to the Faverghera mountain hut where you can taste some typical products and visit the nearby Botanical Garden of the Eastern Alps, included in the Natural Reserve of Mount Faverghera.

The path descends overlooking the entire Valbelluna, closed to the north by Mount Serva and Schiara (Dolomites), characterized by the Gusela, and to the north-west by the Monti del Sole mountains and Mount Pizzocco. In sunny days you can see Marmolada northwards, one of the most famous peaks of the Dolomites, and southwards the lagoon of Venice.
