The Burning Dolomites

A Trip to Val Gardena and the Italian Dolomites in the AutumnThe 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.

Val Gardena

A Trip to Val Gardena and the Italian Dolomites in the AutumnThere 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.
