The Dolomites Nature Park trails (inn to inn)
Experiencing nature – idyllic Mountain lakes, lush Mountain pastures, green forests and the legendary Dolomites will guide you through three Nature Parks during your hike. Not without reason, were the Dolomites declared a Natural World heritage site. As a preamble to the hike, you are greeted by Lake Prags “Pragser Wildsee”, in whose crystal clear waters the whitewashed walls of the Seekofels Mountain, are mirrored. All those who believe that nothing more can top this experience, be well advised that high above Cortina d’Ampezzo, the pearl of the Dolomites you can view and glance over some of the most striking summits. The Cristallo Group of Mountain peaks; the Pinnacle on Mount Tofane and the summits around the Fanes Mountains, all wrestle for the attention of the observer. Naturally, an excursion to the “Drei Zinnen” cannot be left out, the encompassing hike around the celebrated trident promises fascinating impressions of the Sesto Mountain ranges of the Dolomites. Finally, we will introduce you to the splendours of Sesto, the valley of the mountain climbers and mountain guides.
This is a moderate and accessible hiking tour through well-marked trails. It is suitable for anyone in good basic physical condition and climbing experiences are not necessary.
