Bolzano: Best of the Dolomites in One Day Private Tour

1. Bolzano: Best of the Dolomites in One Day Private Tour

Following a pickup from your hotel, you’ll head first to Bolzano, gateway to the Dolomites and capital of the province South Tyrol. Cross the Eggental valley that runs eastward between the Rosengarten massif and the Latemar mountain range. This road was built in 1894 when the territory was part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Stop at Lake Carezza, the most beautiful lake of the western Dolomites, for a 30-minute break and walk around the lake. Next, arrive at Karerpass where you’ll see the historical Residence Grand Hotel Carezza, built in 1893, this was the first luxury hotel in the Dolomites and has hosted very important guests including the Empress Sissi, Winston Churchill, and Agatha Christie. From the Karerpass you’ll reach the Fassa Valley in Trentino and pass through the towns of Vigo di Fassa and Canazei to arrive under the imposing peaks of the Sella group. From here, begin a long series of 27 hairpin bends that will lead you to the famous Pordoi Pass at an altitude of 2,239m above sea level. Enjoy a one-hour break or take the cable car to Sass Pordoi at an altitude of 2,950m. From the Pordoi Pass, go down to the village of Arabba and continue east to the Falzarego Pass, the gateway to the eastern Dolomites. You’ll reach Cortina d’Ampezzo, Italy’s premier mountain resort known as the Pearl of the Dolomites where the Winter Olympic Games were hosted in 1956. Cortina, together with Milan, will once again host the Winter Olympics in 2026. From Cortina, the next stop will be Lake Misurina with its incredible panoramic view of Three Peaks of Lavaredo. The lake, with its view of the peaks to the north and Sorapis to the south, is the most famous image of the Dolomites in the world. Just 20 minutes from Lake Misurina you’ll have the opportunity for a brief stop at another important lake in the Eastern Dolomites, Lake Dobbiaco. From Dobbiaco, you’ll reach the extreme northeast of Italy just a few kilometers from the border with Austria for the great finale of the day: a visit to the famous Lake Braies. From here, you’ll return to Bolzano via the Pusteria and the Isarco valleys.

Bolzano: Famous Dolomites Sledge Slope Experience

3. Bolzano: Famous Dolomites Sledge Slope Experience

Tobogganing is a winter sport for everyone, and lets you have fun zooming through the bends at high speed  or more sedately, depending on your mood. On your own, as a couple or in a group, you can push off with your feet before using your feet and upper body to steer. Child's play, but not just for the kids! Once in the ski resort, you will use a modern gondola lift to climb to the starting point of the toboggan run at an altitude of 1,830 meters-above-sea-level. The toboggan track is famous because due to its being equipped with an artificial snow system that allows its use even when there is no natural snow, and because it is equipped with a lighting system for fantastic night descents. The track is 2.5-kilometers long, and the difference in altitude is 280 meters. The track is considered to be of a simple difficulty, making it perfectly suitable for adults and children alike.
