From S. Cristina:
S. Cristina has so many walks to choose from that we can only list the most important ones in this short guide.
Circular walk via Plesdinaz: north of the Uridl Inn a steep path leads off to Uleta; after 100 m a level path branches off to the right to Pensione Bellavista. The way back is along the road as far as Villa Dolomiti, where you turn right across the old railway embankment to reach the church (1 to 1 hours).
The path to Ortisei goes past the cemetery in the direction of Soplases; when you reach the Comploj food store the path crosses the main road, and then you turn left; after the house Mulin d'Odun the path crosses the stream and then you turn right on the quiet road to Ortisei (1 hour; open in winter). Alternative route: from the Comploj food store follow the main road, and after 130 m join the old railway line to Ortisei.
Circular walk to the waterfalls: from the bottom of the Monte Pana Lift, a path leads off to the right to Casa Tervella, and then turns left through the woods to the waterfalls. To return, take the same path as far as the little bridge, then head for Soplases and from there to the church or to Hotel Post (1 to 1 hours; open in winter).
There is also a fine circular walk to S. Giacomo with wonderful views of the Sassolungo and the Sella. The walk begins at the church square and goes via Uleta (2 to 2 hours; open in winter).
There is a leisurely walk to Castel Gardena leading from Piazza Dosses via Ruacia. Alternative circular route: from Hotel Post follow the River Gardena to Castel Gardena and continue to La Selva, returning via Ciaslat, Prensa and down the Monte Pana road to S. Cristina (1 to 1 hours).
