From Forcia Neigra (2508 metres – see entry “Forcia Neigra round trip”) continue along a path, partially equipped with ropes and ladders, until Passo San Nicolò (2339 metres), where you will find a mountain refuge. From here descend towards Rifugio Contrin and Malga Contrin (2027 metres) and, walking along the enchanted valley which bears the same name, you return to Alba di Canazei.

Path for experienced hikers.
