The Pordoi peak, a plateau-shaped rock summit with a moon-like landscape, is a popular destination in summer and winter. Since 1962 a cable car has overcome the 700 meter difference in altitude between Pordoi Pass (2,239 m asl) and Pordoi peak. On the summit is the Maria Schutzhaus, whose name goes back to Maria Piaz: Together with her son Francesco, she is considered a pioneer of tourism on the Pordoi Pass and the development of the mountain.
The unforgettable panoramic view from the sun terrace includes the Rosengarten, the Alpe di Siusi and the Langkofel in the west and northwest, the Fassa Valley and the Marmolada in the south and the Sella massif and the Piz Boè, its highest peak, in the east. Numerous hikes and climbing tours in the Sella group also start from the hut.
In winter, the Pordoi Pass with the Pordoi peak is a well-known area for skiers and freeriders. The latter depart from the Pordoi Scharte, while the yoke is one of the four Dolomite passes that make up the Sellaronda. For a few years now, it has also been possible to tackle this circumnavigation of the Sellastock in summer by racing bike.
