Holiday in the Dolomites in summer
The majestic and unique Dolomites play host to an unforgettable alpine experience: The diverse landscape with its jagged peaks, emerald-green meadows, peaceful valleys and idyllic villages invites for many outdoor activities.
Summer brings exciting outdoor adventure with hiking, mountain biking, road biking, climbing, doing “via ferrata” and golf.
In winter, Alta Badia’s vast skiable terrain, ranked among the world’s top ski destinations, offers variety for every level, for both ski and snowboard enthusiasts.
Nature park Fanes Senes Braies
The mountains of Fanes circle a vast amphitheatre of undulating pastures. Here you will find easy but satisfying crossings, from both a mountaineering and an aesthetic point of view. You can reach easily the main peaks with breathtaking views.
The kingdom of Fanes of the mysterious Dolomite legends, has made the names of Fanes and Sennes famous. Fanes and Sennes are very closely connected and they merge with the complex of the adjacent Braies Dolomites, until the terrific balcony of the Prato Piazza, at the Picco di Vallandro, in the group of the Croda Rossa.
And the legendary, mysterious charm of Fanes continues: in autumn 1987, with the sensational discovery in a cave of numerous bone fossils belonging to specimens of the cave bear (Ursus Spaeleus), a new page of the history of the Dolomites, and in fact of the entire alpine arch, was written.
The tourist offices Alta Badia organize every week guided excursions to the nature reserve Fanes - Senes - Braies.
Nature park Puez Odle
Beyond that is the rocky range of Luson and the relief of Plose, which are of quarziferous Filladi origin, whilst to the west the porphyric rocky Resciesa juts out from the Odle. From this variety of geological structures a corresponding variety of shapes and rural aspects is derived.
The typical tabular structure of the grey, uniform plateau of Puez contrasts with the slender, bold shapes of the "Pizes dl Cier", Odles, Sassongher and Sas de Pütia.
This geologic variability is enriched by figures of remarkable beauty such as amphitheatres, caves, natural arches, rock pinnacles and strangely eroded shapes which, as in the case of Col dala Sonê, fill visitors with admiration and awe.
The flora is also varied and with an abundance of rare varieties. It is characterised by the dwarf rhododendron, the artemisia and the buttercup. The fauna is well represented with some of the most typical mountain species, from the chamois to the marmot, and from the mountain pheasant to the golden eagle.
