Sunday - Travel and discovery day: after breakfast we will drive through the Alps and explore the Friuli region: possible destinations are the Vajont dam, the town of S.Daniele and its world-renowned “prosciutto” and the city of Udine with the wines of Friuli before arriving in Valbruna for dinner at the Inn.

A brand-new lift, built in 2010, connects Sella Nevea with the Slovenian resort of Bovec and we’ll cross another border on skis before returning to Sella Nevea. Farewell dinner at the Inn.
