The Lagazuoi Cairn Festival is an open-air contest for erecting cairns along the pathway leading from Refuge Lagazuoi to the peak of Mount Lagazuoi at Cortina d’Ampezzo.
There each participant can create his ephemeral work of art, set a landmark in the universe and leave behind a sign of his passage.
The Lagazuoi Cairn Festival ends with the vote of the jury and the awarding of the best creation.
the ascents and descents by cable car, a marked workstation, packed lunches, a gift and a certificate of attendance.
Registrations can be made on the spot, at the Lagazuoi cable car ticket desk or at the Lagazuoi Refuge.
