What to see and to do around Danta di Cadore
Comelico valley and the Dolomites
The Torbiere of Danta di Cadore are one of the most important natural sites of the Veneto region. The starting point is the Provincial Road 6, which connects Danta to Auronzo di Cadore. In the first stretch, in correspondence of the Torbiera Soligena, you bump into willows and rushes in expansion. Later you enter a wood of white and red firs, where you can also find some scots pines and junipers, but most of all you can admire the so called Sfagni, i.d. mosses which develope thanks to the high acidity of the land. Moreover you can find coloured flowers and red berries, which are not edible, sprinkling this sort of carpet. More difficult to identify is the Drosera, a pitcher plant which is typical of the Torbiere.
You can spend a full and wonderful Summer in the Val Comelico: strolls, nordic walking, day trips, trekking, climbing, mountain biking and horse riding. In our little paradise you can walk on the numerous trails, which, from meadows situated in valley floors and from woods and pastures reach mountain passes, crests and mountaintops, giving the possibility to enjoy incomparable landscapes.
Lose yourself in time and nature, listen to your own steps, taste the savory local dishes. That’s what always stays at you disposal!

Flora and fauna
Thanks to its number of rare species, the quality and state of preservation of its biocoenosis, the complex of the Torbiere of Danta represents one of the most important natural sites – offering an interesting vegetation-floristic image – of the Veneto region. Anyway, thanks to its relatively young knowledge (from the 90s) the possibility of new discoveries opens up.
