  • To the lake from Livinallongo: from the highroad n. 48 go uphill as far as you arrive to the hairpin bend at 1967 m. now you have to leave the asphalt and turn into a path which is not marked at the very beginning but which turns soon into a mule track. Cross the Bosco de Roe north-westwards as far as you meet the path n. 23 which leads to the lake. To go back to the car you can run along the road to Passo Falzarego.
  • Galleria Goiginger at Sasso di Stria: from Falzarego along the Valparola road for about 200 m; then you must leave this road and go downhill along the left little valley. Enter the tunnel that crosses the eastern side of the Sasso di Stria and ends in front of the Ntra i Sass fort. From the Valparola road it takes about 1,30 hours.
  • Tour of the Settsass: 4-5 hours, you start from the Rifugio Valparola. Turn into the path n. 24 which leads to Valparola and Val Badia, as far as the "cadin" under the main peak of the Settsass. From the Pizzàde, climb south-east and in about 25 minutes you will reach the Settsass peak. To end the tour, from Pizzade, go southwards and then turn right at the junction, into a comfortable path. The path n. 23 passes the low step of the Lastre, above which the lake Valparola and the homonymous Rifugio lie.
