The Dolomites are one of the most evocative mountain places where to spend your summer holidays.
Landscapes, activities, sports, events, country festivals and other initiatives make these places a top destination for reinvigorating holidays.
Summer in the Dolomites is one of the most interesting alternative destinations where to spend a relaxing vacation, descovering amazing landscapes, practising some sports and reinvigorate your spirit.
The Dolomites and their surroundings include four regions: Trentino Alto Adige, Friuli Venezia Giulia, Veneto, and Lombardia. In each of them you can find the right place and dimension for an outstanding vacation.
Summer vacations in the Dolomites involve hiking on the Marmolada mountain, Monte Pelmo and up to the peak of the Burelloni or the Croda Bianca. Mountain guides can accompany you through simple trekking paths or through the most difficult climbing walls, trying yourself. Anyway, nature will always surprise you with its enchanting landscapes.

Dolomites on mountainbike

If you love biking through long paths, you can spend the entire vacation in the Dolomites riding your bike. You can pass through valleys, one after the other, breathing fresh air and enjoying the accessorized bike paths. You can also pass through small towns, plateau, paved roads, and difficult trails, but you will always be surprised by the ascents and descents characterizing the landscapes.
The Dolomites roads for bikers
Summer in the Dolomites is the most loved among bikers. In this context of mountain roads, they can live the thrill of riding a bike facing the breeze at 3,000 metres height. All paths have signalling systems. They stretch from the Val Pusteria to Cadore, passing through the Pordoi, the Passo Rolle up to the Val Pusteria and the splendid Val di Fassa, stretching across the border of the Friuli Venezia Giulia, Pieve di Cadore and beyond.

Events of the Summer in the Dolomites

Spending your summer in the Dolomites also means participate in the local traditional events that take place in this period of the year.
We wish to recommend the Sudtirol Jazz Festival Alto Adige in Alta Pusteria in July, the outdoor farmers market in Brunico, and the open air theatre performances in Velturno. In addition, you can arrange to spend a night in a mountain hut o in a masi, make a ride on a traditional horse-drawn carriage, taste local food in the outdoor markets and in the local festivals taking place in the many Dolomites’ villages, participate in folk events of the Ladin language communities.

Wellness in the Dolomites

Summer in the Dolomites may be physically challenging. After practicing all these activities, nothing compare some time dedicated to your body wellbeing, taking some wellness treatments.

Most of the Alto Adige hotels have spas and wellness centres where you can get a relaxing massage, have a bath in a hot water swimming pool -while your eyes catch the beauty of the Dolomites peaks- have a face/body treatment to feel in harmony with yourself.
Children and very young people can have fun in the swimming pools or joining the many activities offered by the mountain guides and by the entertainers of the hospitality facilities.
