Summer and autumn in Alta Badia

Alta Badia, in the heart of the Dolomites UNESCO World Heritage Site, is surrounded by the Fanes-Sennes-Prags Nature Park and the Puez-Odle Nature Park, and some of the finest Dolomite peaks.

Alta Badia is the Alpine region that offers the most precious moments to be savoured in the mountains. Our valley combines the beauty of the Dolomites UNESCO World Heritage Site with Ladin traditions and culture and has many valuable moments of well-being to offer to tourists.

As the sun goes down, for example, the majestic peaks of the Dolomites turn pink, orange and fiery red which produces the breath-taking natural spectacle of the Enrosadira – the Alpenglow.
In summer Alta Badia is a popular destination for people enjoying an active holiday. The six villages of our small valley constitute excellent starting points for excursions and mountain hikes surrounded by the majestic natural beauty of the Dolomites.
