Location
San Lorenzo Mountain Lodge is located on a sunny high plateau at the very end of the Val Badia, where it reaches Val Pusteria, one of the most popular valleys all over the Alps.

Experience

The Dolomites Experience - Sample itinerary 6 days/5 nights

Day 1 ~ Arrival
Arrive to San Lorenzo Mountain Lodge by private car -or VIP helicopter- from your airport.
White Deer San Lorenzo Mountain Lodge is located on a sunny high plateau at the very end of the Val Badia, where it reaches Val Pusteria, one of the most popular valleys all over the Alps. Stretching from Bressanone to Lienz, the rich green valley belongs partly to Italian South Tyrol, partly to the Austrian region of East Tyrol.

In the afternoon, meet with a Dolomite Mountains representative and with your UIAGM/IFMGA professional mountain guide for a trip briefing and orientation. Depending on your arrival time at the lodge, your guide can take you on a 2-4 hours hike through scenic woodlands and past Tyrolean farmhouses, to reach the natural phenomenon of the ‘Earth Pyramids’. Formed throughout the centuries by water and ice erosion, these pyramids are the best preserved of Val Pusteria.
(~4 hours hiking 10km / 6 miles, 860m / 2,800’ ascent and 790m/ 2,570’ descent

Day 2 ~ Hike a loop around Croda del Becco/Seekofel
After breakfast, take a short transfer to Lago di Braies. Generally considered the most picturesque lake in the Dolomites, the Lago di Braies/Pragser Wildsee is contained within a wild and romantic rock basin and towered over by the majestic Seekofel / Croda del Becco. Hike on a circuit around the Croda del Beco mountain, passing nearby the Sennes hut (2116m) and Rifugio Biella (2327). The circuit is based on a moderate/challenging trek of approx 6hours duration. Picnic lunch en-route.
(~6-7 hours hiking 16 km / 9.9 miles, 1059m / 3474’ ascent and 1064m/ 3490’ descent)

Day 3 ~ Sella Massif – Via Ferrata Tridentina 
In the morning meet your guide and check out the ferrata equipment you will use for your exciting trip in the Dolomites. Today you’ll hike on the enormous fortress-shaped Sella Massif, with its excellent network of paths. The natural beauty of the surrounding Sella walls makes the views from this hike and via ferrata some of the most impressive in the entire region!

Starting just below Passo Gardena, you’ll challenge the beautiful “Via Ferrata Tridentina.” This stunning route initially ascends slabs and walls that overlook some huge waterfalls, leading to a steeper – and perfectly protected – section of ferrata. The exposure of this challenging climb, combined with a flexible itinerary and a “death-defying” suspension bridge near the top, has made this one of the most popular ferratas in the area.
(~4-5 hours hiking and ascending a moderate 400m / 1,312' via ferrata. Total 650m / 2,140' ascent.)
B,D... White Deer San Lorenzo Mountain Lodge


Day 4 ~ Falconry experience 
In the morning, a private transfer by car (or helicopter) will take you to San Vito di Cadore, where you will meet Master Falconer Guglielmo Ventimiglia for a wonderful highlight of your trip, a half day spent with beautiful birds of prey such as hawks and eagles. For this special event Master Guglielmo will introduce your to the fascinating world of these powerful creatures, he will show you the art falconry with a spectacular private flight demonstration, to allow you to admire these wonderful hawks and eagles in action in their natural habitat. Lunch included in a local restaurant of the area.

Optional: on the way back to San Lorenzo you can stop in Bressanone, the artistic and cultural capital of the valley. For centuries, the city was a stopover for emperors on their travel, and as the seat of the Prince Bishop, it ultimately grew into a center of intellectual and cultural activity. It is impossible to mistake the importance of this city and the countless signs of Bressanone’s 1,100 year-old history and power – the historic medieval center, the old arcaded walkways, the porticos and lanes decorated with merlons, the sumptuous architecture of the cathedral, cloister, and Prince Bishop’s Palace (Hofburg).

Day 5 ~ Rafting on the Rienza River & Cooking class
The experience of white-water rafting in South Tyrol is not only a unique highlight of your trip, it also means experiencing nature – you will be able to catch a glimpse of rare landscapes whislt boosting your adrenaline levels!
The River Rienza in South Tyrol has lots to offer: large quiet sections followed by narrow funnels with steeper drops, rocks and boulders crafted by the force of the river, all surrounded by lush nature. Each year this river hosts national and international races.
After the ratfing experience, a cooking class is the perfect introduction to the local culture and traditional cusine, learn how to make delicious Ladin specialities such as Tutres, deep fried ravioli, as well as the traditional dumplings made with Speck ham and local cheese and a lot more.

Additional day tours  from San Lorenzo Mountain Lodge:

Tasting Typical Products of Alto Adige
Speck ham, originally considered “poor man’s fare” is made from haunches of pork rubbed with a mixture of garlic, bay leaf, juniper, pepper and other herbs, and is now considered a highly prized delicacy. Speck is lightly smoked at a low temperature and then air-dried for 20-24 weeks before release.
Every day cooperatives and small dairies collect fresh milk from valley farmers and mountain farmsteads, turning it into butter, yogurt, cream cheese, light mozzarella, and other mountain cheeses. Bread is a staple of the local diet, and each valley has its own specialty. The most typical bread is the thin, crunchy Schüttelbrot made from soft, leavened rye dough.

A Farmer’s Day in the Mountains
Start by exploring the woods around the lodge; discover the forest (mushrooms and berries won’t unfortunately be ready at the beginning of July, it’s too early), learn the art of wood chopping and carving, and experience nature in all its wildness and greatness. Cosy trails across shady forests, in an impressive natural landscape: hiking in this area makes you experience nature at close quarters.
Visit Herbert, the farmer who looks after all the animals of the Lodge; he might be willing to teach you how to draw milk from a goat! Hike to a cozy mountain hut, where the young cows are kept, and have pic nic there, admiring the great panorama.

Golf
Of all the conditions one can find on the golf course, playing at a high altitude offers the most unique and challenging emotions for the player. Try our emotional golf course, an unforgettable experience!

A Day in Bolzano
Bolzano is the gateway to the Dolomites. It sits in a valley, and it’s quite something to gaze up from the main square, pretty Piazza Walther, at the forest-clad slopes and ridges of jagged limestone that surround it. The centre is traffic-free, so as you meander away from Piazza Walther you hear sparrows cheeping, coffee machines whirring, old women gossiping, cups and saucers clinking.
The colourful medieval, Gothic and Belle Époque buildings, with their stepped gables, turrets and attractively faded frescoes, have a north European feel. Yet the porticoed main commercial street, Via Portici, feels Mediterranean. At Piazza delle Erbe, described with pleasure by Goethe in his Italian Journey, the two flavours meet. Some of the cosiest bars and cafés are hidden behind the stalls of fruit and flowers, spices and cheeses.
Bolzano’s churches; its Franciscan cloisters with 15th-century frescoes of monks from Scotland and Newcastle; its Mercantile Museum; and Museion, a spectacular, glass-clad collection of modern art on the banks of the River Talvera, are all rewarding places to visit. But Bolzano’s biggest attraction is Ötzi, a mummy discovered by chance in 1991 after spending the previous 5,300 years frozen in mountain ice. Most intriguingly, he was murdered.
You can see Ötzi in his fridge, kept at 21F (-6C), at the Museum of Archaeology, alongside a thrillingly vast quantity of artefacts found with him, from bear-fur hat to bow and arrows, and fascinating footage of the police, not realising how old he was, extracting his body. There is also a stunning new reconstruction of how tattooed, muscly Ötzi would have looked on the last day of his life.The chance to come face to face with a man who lived some 500 years before the building of the Pyramids makes the journey to Bolzano worthwhile on its own.

Rock Climbing Experience with a Guide
With an expanse of more than 90,000 acres and peaks reaching over 3,000 meters high, Italy’s Dolomite Mountains is the ultimate destination for the adventure traveler, particularly rock climbing enthusiasts. With a wide variety of climbs available and the ability to tackle most routes within a single day, climbers of any skill level can enjoy the challenge posed by the Dolomites terrain.
The area routes are unique and vary in level, including single pitch sports routes, moderate Alpine routes, and more advanced big wall routes.

Visit Wineries 
Enjoy the day visiting one of the best wineries of the area (Bressanone, Bolzano or Caldaro) and a tasting the products of Alto Adige. Steep, sun-drenched slopes, mineral-rich soils and a long ripening season provide ideal conditions for crafting exceptional wines from many different varieties. The region is acknowledged by sommeliers of the whole world for wines of impeccable quality and value. From Pinot Bianco, Pinot Grigio and Gewürztraminer to Pinot Nero, Lagrein and Schiava, Italy’s northernmost wine region, produces elegant and captivatingly delicious wines. To pair these wines, throughout the Alto Adige region, you’ll find a rich selection of culinary options and tempting specialties to satisfy the most discriminating palate.
