The Dolomites: unique vistas
The glowing sun as lovely backdrop of the famous Tre Cime peaks creates memories of a very special kind. The locals in the Dolomites call it magic "Enrosadüra", a nature spectacle deeply rooted in the region's history. The three popular peaks are some 250 million year old, and were declared UNESCO World Cultural Heritage in 2009. The mighty Dolomites massif can hardly be described: the scenic Schlern mountains, the majestic Sella range, the incredible Rosengarten area, plus myriad cliffs and rocks stretching up to the high Alpine pasturelands. Right in the middle you also find crystal clear Alpine lakes under the deep blue sky. With a bit of luck you can listen to the whistle of marmots romping around on the gently rolling hills. The Ladin farmers still remember old stories and legends of times long past while sitting in front of their quaint wooden huts. Truly memorable holidays …
Summer holidays in the Dolomites
Three famous peaks plus countless other awe-inspiring summits like Sella, Langkofel, Schlern and Marmolata at 3340 meters – the highest summit of the Dolomites – stand for endless mountain exploration and high Alpine adrenalin. All together they are synonymous with unrivaled walking, hiking and mountaineering in the North Italian provinces of South Tyrol, Trentino and Belluno. What's more, the entire region offers an infinite number of splendid hotels and accommodations for all tastes and pocket books.
