The Dolomites - A unique place on earth
Among its jewels, Italy can not only claim ancient cities and vibrant beaches, but arguably the most beautiful mountains on earth as well. Meet the Dolomites, one of only five natural sites to have achieved UNESCO World Heritage status in the country. The so-called “pale mountains” form an intricate system of valleys, featuring lush green meadows in summer, glowing mountain tops and clean mountain air in autumn, and pristine white landscapes in winter. If you love nature and the great outdoors, the Dolomites should definitely be on your bucket list.
Why go to the mountains? The reasons are many. Some visitors are looking for action, and the number of activities on offer in the Dolomites are plenty: alpine skiing, cross-country skiing, tobogganing, plus trekking, climbing, mountain biking and paragliding. Whatever you’re looking for, you will find it. Other visitors are primarily looking for a relaxing getaway and want to rest surrounded by nature. In this case, rest assured: the locals have mastered the art of hospitality and will ensure that your every need is met as you recharge your batteries and breathe some fresh, pure mountain air. As you can see, the Dolomites cover the full spectrum: from pampering wellness retreats to adrenaline-pumping adventures and everything in between.
There are the Alps, and then there are the Dolomites. Come to see for yourself why so many people fall in love with this wonderful place.
