ANOTHER AMAZING TREKKING IN MY HOMELAND | Cason di Lanza, Bivacco Lomasti – Friuli Venezia Giulia

ANOTHER AMAZING TREKKING IN MY HOMELAND | Cason di Lanza, Bivacco Lomasti – Friuli Venezia Giulia

A beautiful walk with breathtaking views starting from Cason di Lanza Casera (Pontebba / Friuli Venezia Giulia) along the cheese trail and the Aip clay up to the Bivacco Lomasti.

A fairly simple trek that will allow you to reach the border and take a look at the ski resort of Nassfeld in summer and go around the huts.

 

THE TREK

 

It’s Sunday morning, the day is enchanting. We arrive at Cason di Lanza where we leave the car and take a coffee sitting in one of the benches outside. Simone also eats a slice of cake, obviously homemade and in the meantime we take a look at the cows running around the fence and the various companies that are about to leave.

Let’s take a quick look at the map. There are many paths that can be taken from here. Both easy and suitable for families – like the cheese trail that reaches in an oretta the Attila Cave through simple paths full of scenic spots and explanatory tables -.

Or more difficult trails such as the Carica crossing, the Crete Rosse ferrata or the “Joseph Uiberlacher” Austrian Ferrata.

The  “sentiero del Formaggio” or “cheese way” is amazing,  ;D  ( SEE THE VIDEO OF THIS TREK HERE  ). It is a beaten and simple path immersed in verdant meadows with a minimal difference in height but with numerous panoramic points to easily discover the peaks that surround us and be able to immerse even more in nature.

 

^^^ Me and Georgie in large green meadows above Cason di Lanza, a real spectacle can be reached  also by children ^^^

^^^ In the way for the Creta di Aip. Me and Giorgino always together 😀 ^^^

 

LET’S GO!

As soon as Giorgino has left, he makes great runs to the right and left, throwing himself into the pools of water that the cows usually use to drink during the walk to the other huts or meadows where they graze. I remember hoping that the walk was all the same and, for once, my prayers were heard, this ride is really easy (if you are a walker, of course).

After the cave of Attila, a small cave of stone with a small stream that flows in the middle and in front of a large clearing full of grass and flowers, continue until you reach the CAI 403 and make a piece of “Crossing Carnica” and I do not say that panorama show.

OBVIOUSLY IF YOU ARE WITH CHILDREN FOLLOW THE RING OF THE MALGES OR RETURNED BACK AFTER THE CAVE OF ATTILA.

Climb, climb and climb again but never with great difficulty until you reach the border and take a walk in the crest of the Aip. On the right our beautiful Italy with its huts in the distance. On the left the summer version of the Nassfeld ski area and its stationary systems. A crazy panorama.

We do not stop and continue until the Lomasti bivouac. From the clay we saw this little red dot getting lost in this grassy clearing and a path that wound around him. We wear our windproof Meru jackets and finally eat. The view from the bivouac is incredible, the valley below shines and on our left we look at the many people who arrive from the railroad that they have just concluded.

We end the tour by following the path of friendship (beautiful but quite long and marshy when we went) and further down the ring of mountain huts that leads back to Cason di Lanza where we reward with a plate of homemade dumplings and a radler beer from the middle .. CIN CIN!

Top 4 Amazing Tree House Hotels in Italy

Top 4 Amazing Tree House Hotels in Italy

THIS IS THE GUEST POST I WRITE FOR “CAMPING FOR WOMEN” – Original post here

The best treehouse where to sleep in Italy

 

If you’ve always wandered to sleep in a tree house surrounded by meters and meters of snow … it’s the time!
The United States has been the forerunners of this wonderful idea and even Italy in recent years has worked hard to make tourists and locals live a unique experience by spending a holiday staying meters high in the middle of our amazing woods.
I’m so happy to announce that one of the most beautiful and design tree house is in my area, the northeast of Italy, in the middle to Venice and Austria and this place is really magic.

1- The Pinecone of Malga Priu, Ugovizza in Friuli Venezia Giulia (Italy) 

 
In a place where man and nature come together the Pinecone is a design treehouse built respecting nature and its environment. 3 amazing floors where you can see the woods around at 360°.
This is part of one of the many eco-sustainable projects to support the mountain economy even in the less touristic areas of Italy. It combines respect for the environment and design and aims to bring more people closer to the mountains and to eco-sustainable tourism. This is absolute not cheap but I assure you that the experience pay back the money spent.
At the main floor you can find the living room, the toilet and the kitchen all built with local wood from Italian artisans. At the top floor you can find in an amazing round room the bedroom with a window above you perfect to see the stars before sleeping and on the lower floor 2 hanging chairs wait you for your relax with a breathtaking panorama. Isn’t a magic place to stay?

2- Tree Village in Claut, Friuli Venezia Giulia

This is the biggest treehouse village of Italy. Here you can find more solutions and is perfect for families. Built in the middle of a National Park close to the most amazing mountains of the Dolomites, the memories of a holiday in this village will remain in the heart forever. Here the contact with nature is total. Breakfast is served under the leaves of the trees before going out to explore the park through well-marked paths or swim in the river.
The activities for kids are various and the parents have the time to relax and have fun.

 3- B&B La piantata, Arlena di Castro (Viterbo)

 The owner say: “At 8 meters from the ground, among 12 hectares of hills planted with lavender, in the thick foliage of an ancient oak tree, it has built the refuge of your dreams”.
This is the dream of any foreigner who comes on holiday in Italy, sleep in the country surrounded by rows of vines or cultivated fields and to feel this classic “italian atmosphere”. This place is a super luxury treehouse where you can have breakfast in your private balcony and smell the fragrance of the lavender all around you. This is a really love escape where you can appreciate the slow pace of time and being together.
