The imposing rock faces, horizontal ledges, steep towers, sharp edges and high peaks are just a part of the Brenta Dolomites, one of the most famous and characteristic parts of the Dolomites, and it is precisely for its ”spectacular scenery and geological significance” that it was recognised as a UNESCO heritage site in 2009.
Dolomites interest five provinces of Trentino-Alto Adige and Veneto, and are divided into 16 mountain groups, among the most famous stand out in particular Brenta Dolomites, Sesto- Braies-d'Ampezzo Dolomites and Fassa-Gardena Dolomites.
The majestic rock towers that reach up to the sky and the numerous trails, refuges, camps and via ferratas, are a delight for mountaineers and excursionists – not to mention the Via delle Bocchette with its classic rock climbing routes.
There are many peaks in this mountain range that are over 3.000 m a.s.l.,we mention in particular Cima Tosa and Cima Brenta, Croda Rossa d’Ampezzo, la Marmolada; summits that sought-after by all the great names in mountaineering.
Even at lower altitudes this amazing place is still very appealing with its many lakes and waterfalls reflecting the peaks of the Dolomites that are ever present along the way, such as Tovel Lake –also called the Red Lake for the colour that was once attributed to its waters-, Molveno Lake – a bathing lake with an amazing array shades-, Braies Lake - known as the "Pearl of the Dolomites", is the most striking of South Tyrol- .
Even though the Dolomites also cater for the jet-setters, with the notorious towns of Madonna di Campiglio and Selva Gardena, discreet yet elegant towns where shopping and fun evenings out rule.
During the Winter the choice of sport is limitless here, with countless kilometers of ski slopes, snow-parks, trails for ski mountaineering and snowshoeing, along with horse riding and ice-skating.
