Discover Alta Badia, the heart of Dolomites, Unesco World Heritage Site
Mountain region ofAlta Badia is located in the southern part of the Val Badia valley, where South Tyrol borders Trentino and Veneto. At the foot of impressive Dolomite summits, embedded in a large, sunny valley surrounded by pristine nature, six small villages lie: Corvara, Colfosco, San Cassiano, La Villa, Badia and La Valle.
Alta Badia is like the other Dolomites regions, a region of contrasts: imposing mountain peaks, smooth meadows, dreamy alpine pastures and modern tourist infrastructure offer pleasant holidays for everyone!
Let yourself be inspired by the beauty of the Dolomites and Alta Badia.
Alta Badia, home of the Ladin speaking people, is an especially cosmopolitan and hospitable region, not the least because of its proximity to the Italian speaking regions of Trentino and Veneto.
Over the years, the little valley in the Dolomites with its Ladin people who have preserved their culture for centuries, has become one of the most popular holiday destinations in the Dolomites.
Nevertheless, the Alta Badia valley managed to retain its rich natural beauty which underlines the uniqueness and magnificence of its mountainous landscape. The Dolomite peaks such as Grup dl Sela – Sella massif, Sassongher, Sas dla Crusc – Santa Croce or Conturines, as well as the natural parks Puez-Odle and Fanes-Senes-Braies are worth a visit in every season.
In 2009 Unesco nominated these beautiful mountains World Heritage Site.
All year round, Alta Badia’s villages offer a wide range of sporting and holiday activities – from skiing to snowboarding, from hiking to cycling, as well as mountain climbing and horseback riding and, of course, any kind of relaxation and recreation surrounded by a unique natural scenario.
