What to see on a Dolomites holiday

A holiday to the Dolomites is all about the views. Head out at sunrise or sunset and you'll be rewarded with some picture-perfect scenes when the jagged mountain tops get a reddish glow. To get the best views, you need to hit the trails. They're easy to access with a great network of lifts taking you to the tops of the mountains. There's routes for all abilities with paths through flower-filled meadows for ramblers and high-altitude trails for keen hikers. The cycling's fantastic too with rugged trails perfect for mountain bikers or hire an e-bike to help you get up those hills.

One of the best things about a holiday in the Dolomites is filling up on the food and wine. It's one of the best regions in Italy for food, with the most Michelin-starred restaurants and plenty of local specialties. Try speck and the delicious apples that grow here

Selva Soaked In Sunshine

At the head of the splendid Gardena valley, Selva is located beneath the jagged peaks of this most spectacular part of the Dolomites, a particularly beautiful Alpine mountain chain in the Süd Tyrol region of northern of Italy.

 

The relatively small area of South Tyrol in the Dolomites is packed with Michelin starred restaurants. In fact, it has more than any other region in Italy! New stars are being awarded every year, which is a great excuse to keep returning. The cuisine here is influenced by Italy and Austria, so expect dishes like apple strudel (made from the fresh apples that grow in the hills), polenta and hearty dumplings. Regional specialties include speck (cured ham) and panicia (pearl barley with water and milk).

You’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to award-winning wines in the Dolomites. Reds, whites and sparkling – whatever your favourite is you’re guaranteed to find it here. With only 9% of the region below 1,500 metres, the vines are packed into around 4,900 hectares. Many of these are still family-owned and follow old traditions to harvest the grapes. Stay in Merano and you can visit these wineries to see how the wine is produced and stock up on some bottles to take home.
