If you’re into nature, walking, fresh air and amazing countryside, Val Gardena and the Italian Dolomites should definitely be on your bucket list!
Outstanding Natural Beauty
A spectacularly beautiful region of Italy, the Dolomites offer unparalleled beauty and this mountainous area offer an abundance of hiking routes. Green pastures, wild flowers, cows grazing happily and beautiful wooden carvings, Val Gardena is the epitome of mountain charm.
Italy Meets Austria
To complete the picture you also need to know that this area is well known for it hearty cuisine and fabulous wellness and spa facilities. It’s a place where Italy meets Austria (and language and culture intertwine). It is also an important UNESCO World Heritage site.
The Burning Dolomites
The colours of the Dolomite mountains change throughout the day as the bleached rocks and the pale stone soak up the colours from the sun and the sky. Do make sure you catch them when the sun is setting as the colours are spectacular. In fact this is where the term the “Burning Dolomites” comes from, as stone takes on the deep pink colours of the sunset.
Delicous abundant food is to be found almost everywhere in the Dolomites and the local specialities are delicious. Do try the mountain restaurants which ooze charm and offer a wonderful treat for weary legs after extensive hiking.
Worth A Visit Any Time Of Year
The trails you hike in Summer and Autumn transform into fantastic skiing pistes during the Winter season as the snow turns it into a Winter Paradise. If you’ve never been before, why not visit the beautiful Val Gardena and the stunning Italian Dolomites.
There are many beautiful villages in the area in which to stay but we were in a wonderful hotel called the Alder Dolimiti Spa & Sport Resort in the village of Ortisei. We were thoroughly spoiled during our time there! The food was incredible – totally delicious and very plentiful. It boasted beautiful gardens and spacious, well appointed bed rooms in the Tyrolean style. The hotel’s huge 3,500 sq metre Water World with indoor and outdoor pools was a great hit. It also had saunas, relaxation areas, salt water pools and was the perfect place to relax and unwind after a long hike in the Dolomites.
