Meet your driver to begin your private, full day excursion to the awe-inspiring Dolomite Mountains.
The Dolomites, as they are more commonly referred, are a mountain range in the northern region of Italy, part of the Eastern Alps. Their name stems from the minerals that compose it, which give the mountains a light pink and coral color when the sun sets.
Your first stop will be Misurina, passing via the scenic Auronzo di Cadore (alt. 1759m / 5770ft). There, you will be able to admire Lake of Misurina, the largest natural basin of the Cadore region. Walking around the lake, you will be able to spot several summits: to the north are the “Tre Cime di Lavaredo”, to the east the “Cadini”, and to the south the “Marmarole” and the “Srapiss”. After your visit to Misurina, you will continue to Cortina via the “Passo Tre Croci” (1805m).
Cortina, the capital of the Dolomites, is a winter sports and summer resort with an international reputation. Set in the heart of the Dolomites at an altitude of 1210m / 4000ft, Cortina is one of the best spots to enjoy the magnificent mountain scenery. While you are here, we suggest an excursion to the “Tofana di Mezzo”, the third highest peak in the Dolomites. It is accessible by a cable car which climbs to 3244m / 10 643ft and offers a superb panorama over the surrounding mountains. While in Cortina, you will have some time to get lunch. If you wish, the driver can suggest a restaurant.
After lunch you leave Cortina to drive along the “Passo Giau” where you will reach an altitude of 2233m/7382ft. From this height, you will have a breathtaking view of the surrounding mountains. On the opposite side of the steep road, you will continue to Selva di Cadore, Zoldo Alto and Longarone.
At the end of the excursion, you will be on the highway, bound back for Venice.
