Dolomites, UNESCO World Heritage Site

The Dolomites cover a vast area between the provinces of Trento, Bolzano, Belluno, Pordenone and Udine. We are talking about 231,000 hectares of breathtaking landscapes, uncontaminated nature, green meadows, rivers and lakes. It is precisely for these reasons that the Dolomites were declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2009. This important recognition is also due to the various parks and nature reserves of the region, protected by provincial and national organisations for the protection of animal and plant species.

A holiday in our hotel in the Dolomites is the perfect opportunity to admire enchanting protected areas. You can witness the phenomenon of the alpenglow: it 'tinges' the peaks of the Dolomites with a pink/orange hue during sunset, providing a fascinating spectacle. This intense colour is the result of the interaction between the sun's rays and the special rocks, which are rich with Dolomia.


Natural parks

The Dolomites are home to numerous nature reserves and parks, unique paradises and shelters for local flora and fauna. Here are the most important nature reserves in the Alta Badia area.

The Fanes - Senes - Braies Natural Park is one of the largest parks in South Tyrol (25,680 hectares), consisting of woods, meadows, alpine pastures, scree beds and rocks. It is a park with numerous plant species, populated by martens, foxes, roe deer, chamois and ibex. Other animal and bird species of the Dolomites are the ermine, the marmot, the alpine hare, the golden eagle and the imperial raven.

The Puez - Odle Natural Park covers an area of 10,196 hectares. It is a fascinating environment, where the colours and reflections of the sun filter through the firs, larches and pines, inhabited by cheerful forest species such as deer and roe deer. The Puez - Odle Natural Park is famous for the butterflies and beetles that nest in the vast mountain meadows; the imperial raven and the alpine chough complete an unusual Dolomite scenery.
