The accessible viewpoint of Sass Pordoi, which lies at an altitude of 2945 metres, is an exceptionally scenic overlook of the World Heritage Site and has rightly earned itself the title of Terrace of the Dolomites. This large rocky balcony stretching out over the valley gives a commanding high-altitude view of the fossil atolls that formed the original coral archipelago: from the Marmolada to the Pale di San Martino, from the Catinaccio group to the Sassolungo range and from the Ampezzo valley to the southernmost tip of the Brenta Dolomites. The horizon stretches even further, though, and the Ortles and Cevedale ranges, as well as the Swiss and Austrian Alps, can be seen in the distance.

The Terrace of the Dolomites is accessed directly from the Pordoi Pass (approx. 12 km from Canazei) by the cableway of the same name. The large car park at the pass (at 2240 m) has reserved spaces opposite the entrance to the valley station. There is just one section of cableway, with no changes, so the journey to the summit is quick and easy. At the top (2950 m), you can have something to eat at the Maria mountain hut (bar and accessible restaurant) or explore the large rocky plateau, following a scenic circular route that takes about 20 minutes. This route is suitable for people of all ages and wheelchair users too. At the valley station, you can visit the Museum of the Great War and the photograph gallery which tells the history of the cableway.
