If you want to try the exciting experience of getting on board a sleigh, pulled by two powerful horses, admiring a postcard landscape, do not miss the exits of Michele Defrancesco.
Let yourself be enchanted by the sound of the bells, accompanied by the rustling of the snow under the skates, by the beat of the hooves on the ground and by the fairytale panorama of the Fuciade basin, embraced by the southern peaks of the Marmolada group.
There are very few in Italy that offer this type of excursions: they take place on a snow sled in the period between December and April; in a carriage with wooden wheels from June to September. Michele, the cute charioteer-cercone also nicknamed "Sugar" of Fuciade (find out why), will project you into a really exciting experience that will take you back in time, when men moved on vehicles pulled by animals. Fritz and Cristina are Norikers, an ancient equine breed, equipped with particular resistance, used by the Roman army during military campaigns and also trained to advance without fear in any condition: this physical vigor also adapts well to the alpine climate of San Pellegrino. Who better than Michele, who grew up in a hut at the Passo, the official cat owner of the Alochet Centre cross-country slopes, to tell you the stories and legends that surround these truly magical places?
The tour lasts about two hours, starting from Malga San Pellegrino, passing by Rifugio Miralago, up to Rifugio Fuciade, where you stop for 30 minutes.
