The Misurina Lake and “Città di Carpi” Hut hike is a classical and easy trail that allow you to see the beautiful Misurina Lake (altitude 1.850 mt.) and at the same time reach a pleasant and quiet Hut in the Cadini di Misurina Dolomites Group. Altitude height difference is low so the hike is for everyone who have a minimum of mountain experience. The main part of the hike allows you to enjoy a fulfilling panorama on the Cadore Dolomites. The hike starts at the starting point of the chairlift from Misurina Lake to “Col de Varda” Hut, that you can see from the car park. If you are traveling with kids, it is a good idea to take the chairlift and save 150 mt. of elevation (Col de Varda Hut is 2.106 mt.). Otherwise, take the beaten track to the right of the chairlift and in about 30 minutes walking in the woods, you will arrive to Col de Varda Hut. It is not necessary to go to the Hut, at the fork for the hut you can take the path on your right going down for few minutes and then walking in a confortable path. Grafted into the path there are no further difficulties, so in a beautiful Dolomitic panorama follow the signs to the Città di Carpi Hut.
