• From Bolzano - Private Daily Panoramic Tour by car: THE BEST OF THE DOLOMITES IN JUST ONE DAY

    Daily tour of a total of 300 km through the breathtaking Dolomites, one of the most beautiful and unique alpine regions in the world, a masterpiece of the nature included in the UNESCO World Heritage list in 2009.

    It is the perfect tour for those who have only one day to visit the splendid Dolomites: you will travel in full “The Great Dolomites Road” from Bolzano to Cortina d’Ampezzo, with the best of the Western and Eastern Dolomites and all the most beautiful alpine lakes. A tour of about 10 hours that you will not forget very easily!

  • Itinerary:

    Departure from Bolzano, the Gateway to the Dolomites, capital of the province South Tyrol.

    We will cross the Ega Valley that begins at Bolzano and runs eastward between the Rosengarten and the Latemar mountains. This road was built in 1894 when the territory was part of the Austro Hungarian Empire. 

    We will stop at Carezza Lake, the most beautiful lake of the western Dolomites: 30 minutes of staying with a walk around the lake if you want.

    Then we will arrive to Costalunga Pass. Near the Pass we will see the historical “Grand Hotel Carezza”, built in 1893, the first luxury hotel in the Dolomites which hosted very important guests like the Empress Sissi, Winston Churchill, Agatha Christie.

    From the Costalunga Pass we will reach the Fassa Valley in Trentino: we will pass through the towns of Vigo di Fassa and Canazei to arrive under the imposing peaks of the Sella Group.

    From here begins a long series of 27 hairpins bends (switchbacks) that will lead us to the famous Pordoi Pass at an altitude of 2.239 meters (7.350 ft) above sea level. One hour of staying if you decide to arrive with the cable car to Sass Pordoi (altitude of 2950 meters: the cable car is open from late May until end of October and from Christmas to Easter).

    From the Pordoi Pass we go down to the village of Arabba and continue east until we reach the Falzarego Pass the gateway to the eastern Dolomites.

    We reach then Cortina d’Ampezzo, the “Pearl of the Dolomites”, Italy’s premier mountain resort and home of the Winter Olympic Games of 1956. Cortina together with Milan will once again host the Winter Olympics in 2026.

    From Cortina we reach then the Misurina Lake with the incredible panoramic view of the Three Peaks of Lavaredo. The lake, with the view of the Three Peaks to the north and the Sorapis to the south, is the most famous image of the Dolomites in the world. 

    Just 20 minutes from Misurina we will have the opportunity for a brief stop at another important lake in the Eastern Dolomites, Lake Dobbiaco.

    From Dobbiaco in about 20 minutes we reach the extreme North-East Italy a few kilometers from the border with Austria for the great final of the day with the visit to the famous Braies Lake.

    From Braies in an hour and 40 minutes we return to Bolzano via the Pusteria Valley and then the Isarco Valley.
