The village of Forno di Zoldo, located at the entrance to Val di Zoldo, is the starting point of the Alta Via.
Surrounded by the magnificent and renowned summits of the Dolomites, such as Pelmo and Civetta, it’s primarily a winter destination due to its proximity to the local Ski Civetta facilities.
From Nail-making to ice-cream making
Forno di Zoldo owes it name to the ironwork furnaces found there. Just think – the nails made in the area were used by the Venetian Republic for their ships and quays.
