The picturesque shades of the Dolomites

Enjoy spectacular views, lights and colours

The Dolomites, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, are different from any other mountain. They are nicknamed "Pale Mountains" for the uniqueness of the white rocks (made of double calcium carbonate) they are made of.

The Dolomites in Alta Badia offer spectacular landscapes and unforgettable colors. Explore the panoramic terraces and the parks Puez-Odle and Fanes-Senes-Braies, real treasures to live on the move.

"Enrosadira" an unforgettable experience

There is much to learn about the one-of-a-kind geological history of the Dolomites, which is evident at dawn and dusk when the rocks take on a reddish-to-violet colour, creating the phenomenon called “enrosadira" (alpenglow). Enjoy the shades of red that glare the Sasso di Santa Croce at sunset and the magic of the first lights of dawn.
