Walking in the Dolomites of Alta Badia

Experience classic Alpine hiking in South Tyrol’s Alta Badia region; an impressive arena of Dolomite peaks combined with green meadows, idyllic villages and the traditional Ladin culture and hospitality. Take on challenging and rewarding hikes through the Puez-Geisler and Fanes-Sennes Nature Parks, enjoying views of Dolomite giants such as Tofana (3,244m), Marmolada glacier (3,342m) and Civetta (3,218m).
