In the year 2000, the Park purchased from ULSS 2 of Feltre over 700 hectares of meadows, woodlands, and rock faces in Val Canzoi. The estate goes from the 750 meters of the valley bottom to the 2,547 meters of Sass de Mura, the highest summit of Cimonega group. Within the estate, one of the most valuable areas of the Park for its landscape and environment, there is the lodge “Al Frassen”: a three-storey house dating back to the first half of the 20th century. After the purchase, the Park renovated the building and transformed it into a guest house for hikers and an environmental education center dedicated to groups of students, organized groups, and associations.
This building, like all the other ones built or renovated by the Park, has been recovered thanks to the “Fossil Free” project, according to which only renewable energy sources should be used within the protected area. For this reason, the electric energy necessary in the guest house is produced by photovoltaic solar panels placed on the roof and by a generator working with bio-diesel; the heating system works thanks to a biomass boiler.
The new lodge is now ready to welcome anyone who want to be absorbed by the nature of the Park.
