The Somadida Forest is located in the Dolomites, in the province of Belluno, in Veneto, between Auronzo di Cadore and Misurina, near the Palus San Marco plateau. It actually belongs to the Somadida Oriented Nature Reserve and extends to the right of the Ainsiei stream, at an altitude between 3.608 and 9.744 ft above sea level.
It is the largest wood in Cadore: rich in biodiversity and ancient trees, it is mostly made of Norway spruces (Pieca abies), silver firs (Abies alba), larches (Larix decidua), and beeches (Fagus sylvatica).

There are many deers, foxes and roe deers, along with a multitude of birds of prey such as the golden eagle, the peregrine falcon, the goshawk, the buzzard, the tawny owl, the owl, the grouse, and the black grouse.

Served by exploration paths also suitable for the elderly and the children, this reserve offers a rich library in the Visitor Center, which is also fitted with audio guides for the blind, with hundreds of books about the myths and the legends of the forests.

A Butterfly Garden has also been recently set up within the reserve, where visitors can observe different species of butterflies typical of the area.

This reserve used to be managed by State Forestry Corps, but it is now taken care of by the Italian Military Police (“Carabinieri”.
