Alta Badia, a pearl in the middle of the Dolomites to discover throughout the year
Alta Badia is ensconced in a wide, sunny valley, surrounded by meadows and woods and overlooked by the rocky giants of the Dolomites and bounded by Puez-Odle and Fanes-Senes-Braies natural parks. One of the most charming places the Dolomites is the Sella massif.
On the 26th June 2009 the Dolomites were added to the World Heritage list due to the beauty of its landscape and scientific importance from a geological and geomorphological level.
Reinhold Messen said about the Dolomites: "They are not the highest mountains, but certainly the most beautiful mountains in the world."
The Dolomites offer mountains and majestic peaks with adventurous trails and climbing routes around the peaks; in addition they possess an intact nature with green meadows, enchanted forests, crystal clear lakes, natural parks and wide plateaus.
A natural show that is beyond compare is the Enrosadira: at sunset the Dolomites dress a fiery red and then move on to violet before disappearing into the night.
These mountains are the ideal holiday location for active people. Here nature is at its most beautiful and offers its guests an interesting holiday in any season of the year.
Spring– summer – autumn
During spring – summer – autumn, the Alta Badia offers breathtaking sceneries, a natural and cultural landscape unique in the world and a perfect symbiosis between tradition and modernity.
Many ski lifts are open during the summer period in order to facilitate the ascent to the mountains. Several mountain chalets offer excursionists excellent typical Tyrolean dishes.
The alpine offers vary from simple walks in the valley, to difficult crossings and challenging climbing routes.
In winter, the ski area of the Dolomites offers 1,200 km of slopes for skiers and snowboarders. Alta Badia offers spectacular views of the most beautiful peaks of the Dolomites, wide, sunny and perfectly groomed ski slopes, and comfortable mountain chalets. For hikers and Nordic walkers are over 80 km of groomed paths, well-marked and full of charm. With snowshoes you can "go snow-shoeing" on snow-covered meadows and through the silent woods. In addition there are slopes to sledge to have fun outdoors.
It is a summer pass for 15 lifts and for the use at a special rate of all public transport. Comfortably seated on the ski lifts you will arrive at high altitude, where the world has another aspect: pure and vivid nature, breathtaking views and a tranquillity that only these places can give you. At high altitude you can take beautiful walks or go in search of chalets to taste some delicious dishes.
