Colle Santa Lucia
Colle Santa Lucia (Associazione Turistica Colle Santa Lucia Dolomiti, PH Anatoly Gordienko)

The Ladin village of Colle Santa Lucia presents itself to the public in literary form: the best introduction is the unmistakable profile with the famous church and Mount Pelmo in the background . Here is the presentation of “The Path of the Bear”, for tourists and locals: a hiking and cultural itinerary that climbs up  the slopes of Mount Pore, one of the most important peaks around Giau pass, literally following the famous novel “The skin of the Bear” written by Matteo Righetto who, in this ancient village, has identified his “Buen Retiro”. Walking on this path means retracing the steps of the leading actors of the book, father and son, hunting for a bear that terrifies the villagers. Dropping into the part of mr. Pietro and mr. Antonio and their attempts to search “The Devil”, it will be like experiencing an intimate sharing of knowledge and emotions, in the name of a double challenge in an uncontaminated landscape, full of animals, amazing encounters and never revealed inner feelings.

Furthermore, after “Vaia Storm” and its signes, this path will not be able to ignore the force of nature. This one can be a friendly force or can become a violent force to pay attention. In short, this path is a sort of journey in the name of trekking, literature and reflection. Visitors can immerse themselves in the romance entitled “The bear’s skin”, already translated into many languages, declined in a path that immerses itself in the most authentic heart of the town of Colle Santa Lucia, in a natural landscape of extraordinary beauty to live a unique wilderness experience, among paths, woods and amazing panoramas.
“The Path of the Bear” - marked with specific signs but also with phrases taken from the book - is a path that, step by step, will transform the excursion into a unique emotion in which the passion for reading, love for the environment and respect for tradition live together.
