Overview

Spend a day amid the harsh, rugged beauty of the Dolomites. Nature is the finest sculptor, and this staggering section of the Alps is among her most impressive achievements.

Climb by coach to more than 2000 meters above the sea and look out at sky-splitting peaks glazed with snow. Enjoy the tranquility of a small mountain resort, where you can shop for local handicrafts and walk in step with the rhythm of life in the clouds.

What's the plan: 

You will be picked up from the starting point of the tour (depending on your location) and taken for an exciting sightseeing tour of the Dolomites.

Enjoy a brief stop at the picturesque Soraga Lake and take some truly insta-worthy photos. You will be passing through the mountain towns of Moena or Cavalese, popular with ski lovers and full of shops with local products and souvenirs.

Your coach will wind its way to the Dolomites, Italy’s most eminent mountain. Reach an altitude of 2,240 meters above sea level at the Pordoi pass, which gives you a panoramic view of the Alpine arc and the verdant valleys that sprawl below. From high above, the serpentine roads that cut through the low lands assume the appearance of reckless sketches penned by some unknown hand.

The highest peaks of the Dolomites, the Marmolada, the Sella, and the Catinaccio, shimmer with snow-capped elegance as you reach for your camera to record the sight.

Take time in the afternoon to visit a peaceful mountain resort—you will have the chance to stroll through the quaint market town of Ortisei and admire the distinctive woodcarvings of Selva Gardena

The tour ends at the starting point.
