BURNING DOLOMITES
Sunset hikes from 12.09. to 02.11.2018

When the summer draws to an end, nature is at peace and the skies seem clearer than ever before, a very special wonder of nature can be observed in Val Gardena.

From the middle of September, the needles of the larch turn from green to yellow, and then to glowing orange, red and brown. At the same time, a special and deep sunlight makes the Dolomites (UNESCO World Heritage) appear wonderfully red. The myth-enshrouded “Pale Mountains” transform into glowing rocks: the edges, points and towers are immersed in a magical sunlight, framed by a crystal-clear and radiantly blue sky, typical of the stable fine weather conditions in autumn. Photographers and nature watchers love to visit the Dolomite valley at this time of year, when it becomes peaceful and tranquil – visitors are truly astonished by the spectrum of colours.

Hikers and others who are interested can enjoy the special atmosphere, in the period from 11 September to 1 November 2019, on a sunset hike every Thursday or on a guided daytrip every Friday. When the summer slowly comes to an end, an enchanting time begins in Val Gardena.
