The accessible viewpoint at Cima Tofana lies at an altitude of 3244 metres and can be accessed directly from the centre of Cortina d’Ampezzo by the Tofana-Freccia nel Cielo ski lift. Tofana di Mezzo is the highest peak in Cortina and the third highest in the Dolomites and affords one of the most spectacular panoramas of the World Heritage Site. The viewpoint overlooks the Ampezzo valley and its most famous peaks – Croda da Lago, Lastoi de Formin, Antelao, Sorapis and Cristallo – but the horizon stretches as far as the eye can see over the whole Dolomite area.

The lift system consists of a new modern cable car, the first to be installed in Cortina, which in the 2019/2020 winter season replaced the first section of the Cortina-Col Druscié cableway, and two further cableway sections – Col Druscié-Ra Valles and Ra Valles-Cima Tofana. The final section – where the panoramic terrace is located – is only open in the summer. The valley station is in Cortina, near the ice rink. Access to the valley station is very easy from the car park opposite the cable car station (1200 m a.s.l.). Take the first available cabin to the middle station of Col Druscié (1778 m a.s.l.). Here you can enjoy a meal at the restaurant (accessible) and admire the view. Take the cableway to Ra Valles (2470 m a.s.l.), where there is a restaurant (not accessible) and then the third section to Cima Tofana (3244 m a.s.l.), where the panoramic terrace, your final destination, is located.
