The Dolomites, a UNESCO Natural Heritage

dolomitesThe uniqueness of the Dolomites has been internationally honoured



The winter is still far away and the skis are resting in the basement. But the Dolomites are on the news. In Sevilla, Spain, on June 26, 2009 the UNESCO has, on their annual meeting, declared the Dolomites as a Natural World Heritage. So the Dolomites now officially belong to the most beautiful mountains in the world. Majestic peaks, sweeping landscapes and geological and botanical peculiarities make them a worldwide unique artwork made by nature. Also famous people like the “King of the Eight-thousanders” says: “The Dolomites are not the highest mountains in the world, but they are the most beautiful”.

 To ski in the Dolomites is now even more an exclusive privilege, that you can’t enjoy anywhere else in the world. With Dolomiti Superski enthusiasts can ski from valley to valley, on 1.200 km of sunny slopes in 12 ski areas, right in a UNESCO Natural Heritage. Take a ride with the cablecar to the Sass Pordoi (2.950 m), the Lagazuoi (2.800 m) or the Marmolada (3.342 m) and enjoy the extraordinary beauty of this winter-landscape. Every evening the “pale mountains” dress their peaks in fiery red, turning to dark violet. A colour show called “Enrosadira”, which due to the special qualities of the dolomitic rocks can be seen only in these mountains. Are you craving for it? Cheer up, soon we have winter! And the Dolomites, UNESCO Natural Heritage, will give you again some memorable moments.
