The Cansiglio is one of the most beautiful forests in Europe with beech trees and firs, home of many animal species like deer, lynx, fox, eagles, hawks and owls.
The Cansiglio forest had been defined “bosco da reme di San Marco” for centuries, because it was a timber reserve to supply Venice fleet’s shipyard, and it is still the second Italian forest today. The whole area is a natural paradise for hiking, rich in charming and well signaled paths.
Here are some of the sports possibilities of the area:
- Golf: in the prestigious “Golf Club Cansiglio” which offers 18 holes at 1,027 meters over sea level, along a 6.077 meters round. It is considered one of the most beautiful golf courses in Europe, having centuries-old trees and several natural hazards that make the round even more exciting
- Slopes for cross-country skiing and back country skiing
- Horse riding, walking or mountain biking (professional mountain bikes and gps with trails can be rented, or certified guides are available to show the magic of such places)
- Animal watching (from September to October the forest is populated by almost 2000 deers fighting for mating)
Distance: About 20 minutes from Vittorio Veneto
A the foot of the Cansiglio forest, there are the Grotte del Caglieron. They are caverns (partly artificially created and partly produced by water flowing into them) where a walk has been obtained, with wooden bridges that take to the exit near an old mill, now transformed into an inn.
