Solidly impressive giants, The Dolomites are a UNESCO site due to the unbeatable aesthetic richness of the landscapes and their scientific value for geology and geomorphology studies.

The Dolomites welcome the visitor in any season. Springtime offers the chance to listen to singing streams and rest on uncontaminated green slopes where you can easily meet cows, goats and horses. Who is whistling in the distance? It must be the marmot calling its companion.
Not to be missed are the gastronomic specialities of the territory like the wide range of mountain cheese and other traditional food prepared in the typical wooden alms.
When Winter comes, the mountains get covered in a white soft mantle turning the landscape into a fairy tale scenario. Not only professional skiers but also beginners and children can have great fun descending the slopes or conscientiously going off-piste if in seeking for more adrenaline.
