One of Val di Fassa's oldest urban settlements, Soraga is ideal for families
In Ladin language "sorega" - coming from the Latin expression "super aqua" - clearly specifies the position of the town next to the Avisio river. Located on the hillside of Valaccia, the town-center is overlooked by the Catinaccio group together with the Roda di Vael. Soraga is a true artistic think-tank where carvers and sculptors carve wood with the timeless feelings the Dolomites inspire. Devoted to peace and relax, this traditional Fassa-style centre offers its increasing number of admirers the chance to experience pleasent walks to discover handcraft shops, tiny rural hamlets, as well as exciting mountain-bike tours along the bike-paths connecting Moena to Canazei, and also a well-equipped playground where kid can wildly and safely romp.
Soraga is considered to be one of the oldest urban settlements of the Val di Fassa, which throughout the years has been able to get bigger, prettier and newer, while still maintaining its Ladin unique features.
For centuries it has been the border land between the Bishopric of Trento and that of Bressanone, which the entire Val di Fassa - Moena excluded - belonged to.
Paradise for cross-country ski lovers, Soraga is overlooked by the Roda di Vael
In Ladin "sorega" - from the Latin expression "super aqua" - clearly specifies the position of the town next to the Avisio stream. Located on the hillside of the Valaccia and overlooked by the Catinaccio group together and the Roda di Vael, Soraga is a true art workshop, where sculptors and carvers shape in everlasting wood all the emotions collected on the Dolomites.
In the winter, the Marcialonga track is the cross-country skiers' favourite, while it takes just a few minutes on the free skibus for ski-mountaneering lovers to reach the nearby ski areas of the Dolomites Superski, the largest ski circuit of the Alps.
Soraga is considered to be one of the oldest urban settlements of Val di Fassa, a town which has managed a non-stop growth, expanding and upgrading yet cherishing its Ladin soul.
