The Dolomites are the most spectacular mountain range in Italy. It is a beautiful area, with impressive, rugged massifs and high peaks, interspersed with hills, green meadows, rivers, lakes and old villages.
The Dolomites are a paradise for lovers of outdoor activities. There are many signposted routes for walking enthusiasts as well as several routes for mountain biking. If you do not feel like climbing too much, there is always the possibility of going up the mountains by cable lift (for example from Cortina d?Ampezzo). It is also possible to go horse riding, parapenting, rock climbing, kayaking or rafting. On the lakes, such as the lake of Molveno, you can go sailing and wind surfing.
The Seiser Alm natural park (Alpe di Siusi) is a gorgeous walking paradise, with more than 300km of footpaths over mountains and meadows. There is a National Park as well, the Dolomiti-Bellunesi.
In winter, the Dolomites are a winter sports destination, with Cortina d?Ampezzo as its most popular resort. The huge skiing area of Dolomiti-Superski consists of 12 smaller skiing areas and has 1200km of slopes in total. For winter sports with an Italian flavour!
