Montanaris: Hiking & climbing in the land of the Tre Cime

1000 things to do in the Dolomites

Climbing in coral reefs, biking on the seabed – that is only possible in the Dolomites. It was quite some time ago, more precisely around 250 million years ago, that the prominent peaks of the Tre Cime di Lavaredo were still under water. It was only when the African and Eurasian plates collided that the entire Alpine region was pushed upwards, and so the fairytale land of the Dolomites was born, which has lost none of its charm to this day.

Feels like Paradise.

Where the peaks of pleasure await you

A hike up our local mountain, the Monte Serla, is a must during your summer holiday in the Dolomites. From the summit cross you can enjoy one of the most beautiful views across the Val Pusteria. The hiking tours on the Picco di Vallandro in the Braies valley, the Monte Calvo and the Corno Fana di Dobbiaco are also among our favourites. You will understand why once you have reached the summit.

If you prefer something a little quieter, you will find your very own personal place of power while forest bathing on the balance theme trail in Villabassa.
