Hiking in the Dolomites
Immerse yourself in nature! So rarely do we have moments to ourselves in these hectic times. Moments in which we can concentrate on nature with all our senses. It's amazing how we suddenly manage to do so in the mountains. The crunch of you feet on the forest floor, the call of a bird, the scents of the coniferous forest and of the alpine herbs gently tickles our nose. There is so much to discover while hiking in the Dolomites!
On foot on a voyage of discovery through the green Villnöss Valley
Every single trail in the Villnöss Dolomite Valley offers deep insights into a beautiful and intact natural and cultural landscape. At any altitude, whether on a leisurely stroll through the valley floor, on a hike to the many farmed alpine pastures or high up on the challenging path to the summit, you will always be accompanied by a breathtaking view of the mountain panorama.
Guided hikes and mountain tours
If you want to learn more about the UNESCO World Heritage Dolomites and about the surrounding nature, you are in particularly good hands on a guided hike. You will learn exciting background information about nature, the culture, the country and the people. Those who still have little hiking experience will learn to move safely and relaxed on mountain and hiking trails.
