Burning Dolomites in Val Gardena

23 August 2021

As summer draws to a close and autumn approaches, the Dolomite landscapes change, take on new shades and colours, the leaves begin to fall and everything becomes more orange and red. Very suggestive are the autumn sunsets that set the Dolomite walls on fire, a true spectacle of nature known as Burning Dolomites. The best time to enjoy this view is between mid-September and November. To mark the occasion, Val Gardena organises guided hikes every Tuesday and Thursday from 14th September to 4th November 2021. From 09th to 30th September 2021 the cable car Ortisei - Alpe di Siusi will be open every Wednesday also in the evening. Hikers and enthusiasts will be able to admire a unique and breathtaking sunset that will colour the peaks fiery red.
