Summer fun & adventure in the Dolomites
See the world from up above, climb cliff faces, cross flowering meadows on horseback, hear the whispering of the treetops whilst Nordic walking alongside babbling brooks – there are so many outdoor activities to choose from in Alta Badia.
Good health comes with two sticks: excellent for circulation and light on the joints, it strengthens muscles and is suitable for every age. There is hardly any sport as perfect as Nordic walking. Add to this the amazing mountain air of Alta Badia, and the dreamy, beautiful mountain scenery of the Alpine meadows and forests. Keep in shape at any age: there are 300 km of walking goodness waiting for you in Alta Badia.
Horse-riding is part of the history of Alta Badia, and here you will find a great number of riding centres full of wonderful horses waiting to be taken out on pleasurable rides. The famous Haflinger horses, both gentle and powerful at once, come from this region. Have an evening barbeque, discover the Puez-Odle national park riding through its ravines and along its fast-flowing streams, and feel the wind in your hair. Riding in Alta Badia – unforgettable!
A completely different adventure: swinging through the treetops, sailing from branch to branch. The Colfosco Rope Garden offers big and small the chance to try out their own climbing ability. Safely strapped in with a climbing belt and safety gear you move in different difficulty levels over five obstacle courses along ropes, over platforms and beams at a height of up to 19 metres. All you need here is dexterity, balance, concentration, and a bit of courage.
Nothing is as exciting as gripping to a cliff-face, mastering mountain peaks, and feeling the freedom of being up high. In times gone by the Vie Ferrate were built in order to negotiate steep slopes, but today they are exciting climbing routes for mountain lovers. The Dolomites are full of these ‘paths’, which can easily be reached from the many mountain shelters. With the right equipment, experience, and a mountain guide you can have one of the most exciting times of your life!
