Summer holidays in the Dolomites: Cycling & hiking

The spell of the mountains

Lived traditions, old customs and unique natural landscapes shape the environment and the people who live here. Legends entwine around colourful alpine meadows and seemingly endless plateaus in the Fanes-Senes-Braies Nature Park, magical stories are told about lonely mountain lakes and some of the rock giants comes to life overnight …
