5 Things to Try While Visiting the Dolomites
Littleton, CO, January 12, 2011 -- In the Dolomites there are five experiences in particular that should not be missed, adventure operator http://DolomiteMountains.com offers a few recommendations for travelers looking for an authentic experience.
Italy’s Dolomites, a vast mountainous region located just south of the Alps, provide visitors a stunning account of natural beauty and endless adventure. Its 90,000 acres consist of picturesque villages, rolling green pastures and steep mountain trails with breathtaking views. Traveling to the Dolomites can at first seem overwhelming, given the size and expansion of the area, so it’s a good idea to prepare a list of things to do ahead of time so you get the most out of your trip.
There are five experiences in particular that should not be missed.
Walk a via ferrata
In English via ferrata means "iron road", and it’s a unique way to traverse the mountainous paths of the Dolomites by climbing up through the use of a series of metal rungs, safety cables and bridges that form a vertical path to the summit. You need not be an experienced mountain climber, but be forewarned, the views during your ascent will most certainly stop you in your tracks.
Stay in a rifugio
Rifugios are basically mountain huts located throughout the Dolomites. They are typically simple and rustic, however these shared facilities can be quite comfortable and can accommodate anywhere from 20-50 hikers. There are often showers available and most also serve food.
Drive the Great Dolomites Road
Open year round, this scenic route crosses Falzarego, Pordoi and Karerpass (at the renowned Rosengarten) and connects Bozen with Bolzano.
Known as the Queen of the Dolomites, Marmolada is the highest mountain in the Dolomites. Visitors can take a cable car to the top, or hike underneath the Marmolada Glacier, located on the mountain’s north face. The magnificent views are awe-inspiring and unmatched.
Explore the WWI tunnels and galleries
Lagazuoi Mountain boasts an intricate array of galleries and tunnels that were constructed by the Italians and Austrians during the First World War. There is a museum you can visit, as well as the Rifugio Scotoni, which serves a delicious and highly recommended grill and vegetables dish for lunch. While you’re there, you might also consider a stay at the Rifugio Lagazuoi, located at the top of the Lagazuoi Mountains, where you can experience the best 360° views in the Dolomites.
Given the vast size of the Dolomites, there are endless scenic adventures to be had, but unless you plan on staying for an extended period of time, it makes sense to select a few activities to participate in while you’re there. The five listed above will help ensure that you get the most out of your trip and experience the very best that the Dolomites have to offer. To learn more visit: http://dolomitemountains.com
