Dreaming of your summer holidays? Would you like to escape from your daily routine and immerse yourself in nature? Do you love the mountains and are you constantly looking for new adventures and breathtaking views? The Dolomites are the right place for you! If you haven't yet thought about where to go and what to do in August, South Tyrol offers many opportunities for everyone and an unforgettable holiday. Here are some suggestions:
In Alta Valle Isarco lies an oasis of peace and tranquillity: Ratschings. Here holidays are all about soft mobility and sustainability. It is a paradise for hikers, with trails of every level and difficulty, both for the more experienced, such as the Alta Via di Ridanna, and for families with children. Dedicated to the latter are the 7 themed trails near Racines. The Stanghe waterfalls are also worth a visit.
Alpe di Siusi
Fairy tale landscapes overlooking the impressive Dolomites peaks of Sassolungo, Sassopiatto and Sciliar, and 300 days of sunshine per year await you in the most enchanting Dolomite valley loved by tourists: the Alpe di Siusi. The largest plateau in Europe is appreciated by families and sportsmen alike. Summer is the best season to venture on the Alpe di Siusi on board a saddle or on foot and, for the more adventurous, through the iron ways. For climbers, the Via ferrata Laurenzi (iron way) is very suggestive, while hikers should try the Trail of Federico Augusto.
A world of fun for children awaits including giant mushrooms, witches' benches, rides, and the garden of King Laurin.
As the Valley of a thousand attractions, Val Gardena is perfect for a family vacation or a sporting holiday. At your disposal are a multitude of activities including mountain biking or motorbike routes along the famous Sella Pass, hiking, iron ways, climbing, and much more. The area is particularly popular with cyclists with over 600 kilometers of routes and the adventurous Danter bike park with the first flow trail in the valley, the Cir trail.
