Let your imagination take off

The powerful winged creatures populating the Latemar area have left visible traces which unveil their wish to show off. Find the traces of their passage along the 1,4 km long itinerary at the feet of  the Latemar among the marvels of the beautiful Val di Fiemme Dolomites World Heritage site.

You don’t need a guide, walk on the snow and be inspired. A mountain holiday with children here means a story encouraging kids to look up with bright open eyes and reveal their hearts and imagination. The installations along the path were made by local artists, local students from the school “Liceo Artistico Soraperra” in Pozza di Fassa who worked with Marco Nones. They walked together to be inspired, looked at rocks, trees, meadows to give life to the Dragons Forest with real masterpieces of land art enhancing the territory and the Trentino Dolomites.

The land art is contemporary, the art work respects the environment, it is made with natural materials and it is ephemeral. Wind, rain, snow and sun transforms it with the passing of time.

Some of the prizes have been sculpted in wood by local artisans, based on the drawings of the students from the “Liceo Artistico Soraperra of Pozza di Fassa”.

Help Rogos, Rametal and Raya to defeat Kraus

He spits out thick flames like lava across the mountains t to recreate the sombre atmosphere of his volcanoes. Take heart, you have a mission to accomplish! But be careful of Kraus: a powerful magician always ready to pounce.  When you find the rock of the prophecy you are on the right road.

Rametal is the guardian of the Latemar mountains: a green copper colour with a protective spirit. He can detect the slightest movement within a range of 5 km, but will this be enough to protect his little inheritance from Kraus? Carry on with confidence, overcome the tests and solve the clues: Rametal will understand that he can trust you. Through hollow trees, fire and brimstone and precious, little remains to accomplish your mission.

You will help Raya recover the Gift of Light the most powerful ingredient in all magic and the life blood of all creatures. Raya is a milky and gold-colored dragon with long, pointed ears, scales on its back, large wings, and a sparkle on its chest.
