Lake of Fédera

The splendid scenery surrounding its waters makes it one of our most-loved destinations both in summer and in winter.

A natural playground for children, it's far away from the centre of Cortina and the ski lifts. The peace and beauty of the place make it a unique jewel overlooking the colossi of the Croda da Lago, Croda Rossa, Pomagagnon, Cristallo, Sorapiss and the Becco di Mezzodì.

For the more courageous, it is a chance to take an invigorating high-altitude dip during the warmer part of the day.

Also known as the Lago da Lago, the lake takes the name Fedéra from Féda (“sheep”), referring to the ancient pasture land that you come across after around half an hour's descent.

The particular fauna populating this high-altitude expanse of water consists of small fish, molluscs and mountain newts. Both in summer and in winter, the level of the water remains constant, probably thanks to the existence of one or more subterranean springs.

Numerous legends have arisen out of these waters. Ask Angelica, the youngest daughter of the owners of the Croda da Lago Refuge, situated right at the side of the lake, to tell you the story of  Zan de Rame and Donna Dindia up against a perfidious dragon…
