Canazei is the most famous village in the beautiful Val di Fassa valley. It offers some 50km of very quiet local slopes, and one can easily access the vast Sella Ronda ski circuit for further exploration – the entire Dolomites Superski area offers just over 1200km of terrain. Canazei is also home to the oldest ski school in Italy, the Marmolada ski school, and the excellent childcare facilities make the resort a great choice for families.

Intermediate skiers will find the most to love here, while beginners are also well catered for. Seasoned pros may want to consider a resort with more challenges, however there are some great off-piste opportunities in neighbouring Arabba and heliskiing is available for the seriously adventurous.

The village of Canazei itself is positively charming. The locals are particularly friendly, especially if you make an effort with the language, and the scenery throughout this area of the Dolomites is truly spectacular. Better yet, there are some fantastic mountain restaurants and delightful après-ski spots to enjoy.

Hotels are the most common accommodation in Canazei and many of them can include UK flights and transfers in the package. Holidaymakers interested in the Italian resort can fly into Treviso (155km away), Innsbruck (157km away) and Venice (170km away).

Within the resort itself, a free bus service connects Canazei and Pozza with the main Belvedere gondola.
There are a number of excellent bars and cafes in Canazei, offering charming spots for a quiet glass of wine and a few more lively establishments for some après-ski fun.

After a big day on the slopes, it’s hard not to fall into Apres Ski Paradis. This lively bar, nestled on the main road into town from Col Rodello, is a strong town favourite. Husky Pub is the other main après pub in town, boasting some great live music. Lieber Augustin, located on the main road towards Pozza, is another lively spot to grab a drink – though it does get quite busy.

For a more peaceful beverage on the mountain before you head into town, Baita Cuz is a great bet, while Enoteca Valentini is the place to go if you fancy a wide selection of wines, including an extensive range of local drops.
While there are certainly better resorts for non-skiers, Canazei offers a decent range of winter activities sans skis.

The resort is home to the beautiful Eghes Wellness Centre, which has four themed areas with an assortment of luxurious baths, saunas and other relaxation facilities, as well as a 25m swimming pool. There’s also an ice skating rink in nearby Alba, which is just outside the main resort of Canazei.

Other winter staples like snow shoeing and sleigh rides are also on offer. For more information, the best place to go is the local tourist office. Of course, you can also ask your dedicated chalet host or hotel concierge.

Canazei is home to some excellent mountain restaurants, including great value options and delectable Michelin starred dining.

On the mountain, Baita Checco offers some of the best cooking in the valley – well worth a trip over to the Catinaccio ski area. Rifugio Salei, beneath the Col Rodello, is another wonderful option, as is Baita Cuz.

For couples in search of something special, it’s hard to go past Malga Panna in Moena, which is slightly further afield but well worth the trip. This restaurant plates up Michelin starred cuisine that tastes as good as it looks.

For simple, delicious food and great service, Osteria La Montanara comes highly recommended. It’s also very family friendly, and the prices won’t break the bank.

Below, you’ll find just a few of the fantastic restaurants in Canazei, as voted by our ski holiday experts.
