Dolomites Hike: Seceda to Regensburger Hütte
The loop hike from the mountain summit station Seceda to the mountain hut Regensburger Hütte is a gorgeous and surprisingly easy hike in the Puez Odle Nature Park. At the mountain summit, there’s a magnificent view of the dagger-like Fermeda peaks and Gran Odla. When we began our hike in the late morning, we could only see part of the peaks, because of the lingering fog. By the time we finished the hike, the fog had cleared, revealing the rocky belly of the slanted pinnacles.
Seceda Cableway Map
To begin this hike, take the Aerial Cableway from St. Ulrich (Ortisei) to the mountain station Seceda, elevation 2,518 meters. When you purchase your cableway ticket, you’ll have a choice to go to Furnes, or Seceda. Purchase a round-trip ticket to Seceda. At Furnes, you’ll disembark a gondola and walk a few meters to embark on the cableway to Seceda.
Seceda to Regensburger Hütte Trail Map
After arriving at the summit station, head towards the beautiful Fermeda peaks: Pitla Fermeda, Grana Fermeda, Gran Odla. It’s an easy flat trail.
After about 25 minutes, you’ll see several trail signs. Take trail no. 2B in the direction of Regensburgerhütte (Rifugio Firenze). It takes 50 minutes to get to the mountain hut.
But first, the hike cuts through Pieralongia. You’ll find a mountain hut here situated among fallen rocks. To say the landscape is striking would be a huge understatement. It looks like a sacred pagan place of worship and sacrifice.
Next, the trail winds across Cisles Alm (Alpe di Cisles), a meadow with stunning views of the Geisler (Odle) Group and uncountable peaks.
The destination, Regensburger Hütte, is more than just a place for lunch. It’s an oasis with panoramic views of the Geisler (Odle) peaks, Muntejela and Mont de Stevia.
After lunch, take trail no. 1 back to Seceda. The return trip should take 1.5 hours.
