Listed among the Unesco World Heritage Sites, the Dolomites enshrine a number of natural beauties that leave you breathless: green forests, creeks, a countless lakes and crystal-clear waterfalls.
At sunset a beautiful pink turns the Dolomite rocks into an explosion of colours, thanks to the limestone build up: this unique phenomenon is called “enrosadira”. It is near Belluno that we find the Biois Valley, taking its name from the river that goes through it, surrounded by some of the most spectacular mountains: Pale di San Martino, Monte Civetta and the magnificent Marmolada, which with its 3,343 meters is the highest top in the Dolomites.
At the foot of the Marmolada, in Val Pettorina, the village of Rocca Pietore should be visited, with the Serrai di Sottoguda, an original canyon carved through the rock.
Trails and shelters at high altitude dot the area around Falcade, with interesting walks leading to Focobon Valley, to Valfredda or to Malga Ciapela. Here you can admire the typical wooden buildings called “tabià“, once used as shelters for cattle, but also for storing hay, drying cereals and producing milk, meat, eggs: the oldest one dates back to the 17th century.
Do not forget to visit the many little churches, which often have many unexpected treasures hidden inside it. A land that offers many opportunities for recreation with its climbing routes, cycling paths and hiking trails.
