Belluno Dolomites

Gigantic, uncontaminated and rich in unique flora and fauna, the Belluno Dolomites extend throughout the province of Belluno, dominating the landscape and deserving of the prestigious place they have in the set of the most beautiful mountains in the world.

They include Civetta, Moiazza, Marmolada, Tofane, Sorapis and Croda Rossa d’Ampezzo. These places have written the history of tourism thanks to enchanting landscapes, ski resorts and the historical and cultural heritage of ancient peoples.

The local territory includes landscapes of every kind, from majestic peaks to green fir forests, from the valleys rich in streams and towns to the flowery plains, all jealously protected inside the borders of the Belluno Dolomites National Park. Declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2009, this territory has been protected over an extension of 32,000 hectares, within which the construction of tourist facilities such as hotels and restaurants has been expressly forbidden. Inside the park, nature lovers will be welcomed by many species of martens, insects, hawks, owls and eagles, the most famous of all being the golden eagle, which lives here, while the flora offers many varieties of flowers and mountain trees.

However, mountain lovers should not feel excluded. Outside the park they can practice a wide variety of sports, from the most common ones such as skiing, horseback riding, trekking and mountain biking to more extreme ones such as rafting and paragliding, perhaps by visiting the Alta Vie delle Dolomiti or emblematic places like the Lake of Santa Croce.
