Nos Ladins: in Alta Badia as a true local

01 April 2021

This summer, Alta Badia, the land of the Ladin people, is offering a whole new experience to tourists, who will become the true protagonists of the new project Nos Ladins - Noi Ladini, whose aim is to introduce them to the local culture through the locals, the Ladins who have always lived in this wonderful land. The undisputed protagonists of Nos Ladins - Noi Ladini are a gourmet chef, a traditional cook, farmers, a cyclist, a seamstress and an alpine guide. A way to bring tourists closer to the local population and their way of life.
