First you drive via the town of Dobbiaco/Toblach to the Misurinasee lake, often described as ‘the Pearl of Cadore’. The beautiful pass road leads you then - framed by the Dolomites - over the Passo Tre Croci (1,809 m) to the Falzarego Pass (2,109 m). The pass is a wide, boulder-strewn saddle to the southwest of the main Dolomite massif of the Tofane; in front of it is the rocky peak of the Small Lagazuoi (2,762 m). To the west, the glaciated Marmolata can be seen, and to the south, Monte Averau (2,649 m) rises in the Nuvolau group, as well as the five peaks of the Cinque Torri group.
Above the clouds: The highlight of this tour is an incredible place, which really exists and which you will visit for lunch. Soaring peaks that exceed 3000 meters, which include some of the most famous mountains, the protagonists of one of the most striking scenery in the world. The most unique view of the Dolomites awaits you at lunchtime.
With the cable car you can comfortably cover the altitude meters on the Lagazuoi. The amazing view from the terrace of Rifugio Lagazuoi at 2752 m is the highlight of this tour. Above the clouds, in the middle of the Dolomite peaks, you can enjoy a unique view of the Fanes group, the Tofane (3,244 m), the Conturinese peak (3,064 m), the Antelao (3,264 m), the Civetta (3,220 m), the Marmolata (3,343 m), the Sorapis (3,205 m) and the Monte Pelmo (3,168 m) m).
After this impressive experience, you’ll continue and stop in the picturesque Ladin mountain village of Colle Santa Lucia southwest of Cortina d’Ampezzo in the province of Belluno. The charming, small village with approx. 360 inhabitants invites you to a short walk.
As the tour continues, one of the next highlights of today’s tour awaits you: Passo Giau (2236 m), one of the most impressive Dolomite passes. The landscape along the 27 km long pass road changes its character from lovely to high alpine. At Passo Giau you will experience the combination of the rugged rock formations that are characteristic of the Dolomites and the unique views of the most beautiful peaks of the Dolomites: Nuvolau, Averau, Marmolada, Tofane and Cristallo are just some of the big names.
The tour continues to Cortina d’Ampezzo, where the 1956 Winter Olympics were held. Experience the Italian flair of the famous elegant and mundane ski resort on a short stroll or a shopping tour. Afterwards your driver will take you back to the hotel.
