Lake Misurina and Falzarego Pass
Your driver and guide will pick you up in a comfortable Premium Executive Van directly at the hotel. Via Dobbiaco you drive to Lake Misurina, often called the "Pearl of Cadore". Accompanied by the interesting stories of your guide, the beautiful pass road first leads over the Passo Tre Croci (1,809 m) to the Falzarego Pass (2,109 m). The pass is a wide, boulder-strewn saddle 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 jagged peaks of the Cinque Torri group.
Lagazuoi: The mountains as a cinema screen
Arriving at the foot of the impressive Little Lagazuoi, the cable car takes you spectacularly to the summit. There, above the roofs of the World Natural Heritage Site, a lunch awaits you with probably the most unique panoramic views of the Dolomites.
Sky Lunch: a unique experience
The overwhelming view from the terrace of the Rifugio Lagazuoi at 2,752 m, where you stop for lunch, is undoubtedly the highlight of this tour. Above the clouds - in the midst of the Dolomite peaks, here you can enjoy a unique view of the Fanes Group, the Tofane (3,244 m), the Conturiness 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).
The Dolomites – UNESCO World Heritage Site
Anyone who has seen them will confirm that the Dolomites are among the most beautiful mountains in the world. The uniqueness of the region, its geological significance and not least its beauty were recognised by UNESCO in 2009, which declared the Dolomites a World Heritage Site. Only regions that have a special value for humanity and are to be placed under protection in order to preserve this inestimable value are designated as World Heritage Sites.
Colle Santa Lucia: A picturesque mountain village in the Dolomites
After this impressive experience, take the cable car back to the Falzarego Pass and continue with your private driver to the picturesque Ladin mountain village of Colle Santa Lucia, which lies in the southwest of Cortina d'Ampezzo in the province of Belluno. The charming, small community with approx. 360 inhabitants is one of the most beautiful, small Italian mountain villages in the Dolomites. Experience the authentic atmosphere on a walk through the quaint little streets.
Mountains within reach: Passo Giau
On the onward journey, one of the other highlights of today's tour awaits you: the 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 characteristic of the Dolomites, which seem close enough to touch, and unique views of the most beautiful peaks of the Dolomites: Nuvolau, Averau, Marmolada, Tofane and the Cristallo are just some of the big names. Such a unique view may be enjoyed: At one of our most beautiful, somewhat hidden favourite spots, you have the opportunity to pause for a moment and let the mighty mountain panorama take effect on you.
Legendary luxury ski resort Cortina d'Ampezzo
The tour continues to Cortina d'Ampezzo, where the 1956 Winter Olympics were held. During a short stroll through the town or a shopping tour you will experience the Italian flair of the famous elegant and sophisticated ski resort. Afterwards, your driver will take you back to the hotel.
