No es Roma, no es Venecia... son las Dolomitas, las montañas más famosas de Italia. Situadas en los Alpes Orientales, esta escarpada cadena geológica fue protegida por la Unesco. Allí, con un paisaje paradisíaco, está el centro vacacional que cuenta con guías certificados para tantas opciones como se les ocurra: desde las tradicionales bajadas de esquí y snowboard, hasta terrenos fuera de pista, biking, escalada, hiking, trekking y más.

In the snow Magazine - Resort Insider Alta Badia

Italy’s Alta Badia region contains half-a-dozen traditional ski villages of various sizes. Located on the famous Sellaronda circuit, within the giant Dolomiti Superski region, it’s almost as famous for its authentic atmosphere (the local Ladin dialect is still spoken here) and superb cuisine as it is for its strong winter-sports heritage. Even the most lowly mountain hut here endeavours to provide gourmet quality cuisine at affordable prices.

CITY A.M. - Leave the beach behind and trek Europe’s prettiest mountain range, the Dolomites

Sun seekers might disagree, but in my opinion there are few better places to spend the summer than the Alps, where you can find dozens of activities to suit everyone from uber athletes to Uber passengers. My family needed a little convincing too, before they’d agree to spend their holidays in the mountains rather than on an island beach resort, so to sway them I called on the help of Dolomite Mountains, a holiday company specialising in tours of the Italian mountain range. Our plan was to mix some hiking and biking with a bit of comfort and culture.

ETB Travel News - An Artist Transforms this Sardinian Hotel Experience – Su Gologone, Sardinia, Italy

A magnificent art gallery with guest rooms. That’s the unique appeal of this hotel experience in Sardinia, Italy. If you think that a hotel is just somewhere to lie your weary head at night, then think again. The Su Gologone, with its colonial architecture blending into the hillside, reflects traditions of Sardinia through a constantly evolving display of Sardinian art, folkloric costumes and decor.

ETB Travel News - Welcome to Nature’s Paradise – Selvaggio Blu, Sardinia

Italy “Welcome to Nature’s Paradise” should be the national slogan for Sardinia, Italy. Sardinia’s Selvaggio Blu, is easily the most spectacular and most scenic trek in all of Italy. Situated between the glorious Mediteranean Sea and high rocky planes of Golgo, this trek offers spectacular views. The Selvaggio Blu manages to be one of Italy’s best kept secrets for unspoiled nature, despite its claim as the second largest island in the Mediterranean Sea. It’s a short flight from major cities in Italy, thus making for an easy stopover on a trip to Italy.

CELLOPHANELAND - Hotel in Cortina

Cortina in undoubtedly Italy’s most exclusive destination. This pretty and historic mountain town is overlooked by spectacular peaks of the Unesco World Heritage Dolomites whilst the town centre is similarly dominated by the 70 metre high bell tower and encircled by grand 19th century mansions.

CELLOPHANELAND - Hotel Villa Abbazia

The rolling Alpine foothills of Veneto have long provided refuge for Venetian nobility seeking relief from the searing summer heat. For over a thousand years, members of one of the wealthiest and most influential empires in the world constructed private villas in the hills, and brought a love for culture and the arts still seen in the local towns and villages.

At the summit of a small hill in the Veneto pre-alps it is rather surprising to come across a solitary vending machine under a wooden shelter. This however is no ordinary dispenser, nor indeed an ordinary hill for that matter. The goods dispensed are full size bottles of Prosecco and the hill is the famous Colline del Cartizze.

“Wait here,” said Luca, tying a rope to me. “When I shout ‘ready’, you can start to climb.” With that, he edged around the sheer rock face like a mime artist feeling an imaginary wall, humming the theme tune from the Indiana Jones films. “Climb,” I shouted after Luca. “I . . . I don’t know how to climb . . . ” But he was already gone.

BEST OF THE WORLD - Moving On Up in the Dolomites

WHEN WORLD WAR I broke out, Italy’s Dolomites became a treacherous front line for Austrian and Italian soldiers. Here among the jagged peaks and sheer pastel walls of this ancient range of the Alps, where many cultures had coexisted for centuries, soldiers on both sides built networks of bolted-down steel cables, called via ferrata (iron path), to move supplies quickly—and for other mis- sions, too.

It was not quite what I expected on a first day’s walk in the Dolomite mountains. We had come through pine forests with an undergrowth of alpenrose and blueberries; mountain fritillaries and delicate small blue butterflies played across the path.

CHARLESTON STYLE AND DESIGN - Heaven's Gate

The Dolomites are the crown jewels of the Alps. Fairytale spires, twisted towers and sheer rock faces soar above emerald valleys. A collision of continental plates millions of years ago thrust the rock up and out of the sea and formed these spectacular mountains, whose highest peaks are nearly 11,000 feet.

When it comes to travel, “luxury” is a subjective concept. For some it’s all about Frette sheets, seat 1A or mooring up on the waterfront in Cannes. For others it’s as simple as a lie-in, no flashing red light on the BlackBerry and a freshly-baked baguette from the boulangerie down the road.

COVEN – Wild Life: Hiking the Alta Via N.1

Like EM Forster’s heroine, Lucy Honeychurch, who ventured to Italy to escape from her stifled middle class Victorian life and ‘find herself’ amongst the Duomo’s of Florence in ‘A Room With a View, I too headed to Italy for a change of scene. But I swopped the cathedrals of Florence for the towering Duomo’s of the Dolomites; with its pillars and colossal rock walls, which turn from grey to gold and red at dusk.

The VIA FERRATA!! This is what brought us to the Dolomites in northern Italy. I read about this in some travel book (can’t remember anymore which one) that this was one of the top adventures in the world. After doing it I can say it was a blast and an amazing adventure but one of the top adventures in the world??… maybe a little bit a stretch. Would I do it again? In a heartbeat.

THE SMOKING JACKET – Biking in the Dolomites: A Faceplant into the Italian Alps, by Harmon Leon

Don’t ask me how I did it. Don’t. But somehow I find myself in the Dolomite Mountains smack in the north of Italy on a 5-day bike tour through some of the most stunning scenery I’ve seen this side of Jessica Alba. Fueled on amazing pasta and red wine while surrounded by those gorgeous Italian women on bikes, the Dolomite Mountains are the greatest cycling spot in the entire Alps. In this locale I will soon find myself going mad-with-biking power.

GECKOGO! – Climbing the Via Ferrata in the Dolomites

I stared at what looked like a giant metal playground mounted on the side of the mountains, and was instantly sold. Inner child awoken, the notion of scrambling up ladders, crossing bridges and scaling rock faces was better than candy. I was ready to give it a go – right then and there.

Via Ferrata (or iron road) is a mountain route which is equipped with fixed cables, ladders, and bridges. The use of these allows otherwise isolated routes to be joined to create longer routes which are accessible to people with a wide range of climbing abilities.
