Dolomites – King of the Alps

Self Guided Tour - 7 Days / 6 Nights

Idyllic mountain lakes, lush green pastures, picture-book alpine villages and the legendary Dolomites provide the background for this stunning walk through three nature parks.
You’ll enjoy breathtaking impressions of the Sexten Mountains on hikes around the “Drei Zinnen” and the Trident. At the beautiful mountain lake Prags you’ll marvel at the whitewashed walls of the Seekofels Mountain mirrored in its crystal clear water.
And relaxing in the exquisite mountain town of Cortina d’Ampezzo, prepare to be constantly dazzled by striking views of the summits of the Cristallo ranges.
