Corvara & Colfosco

From swimming in the pure waters of Biotope lake, to discovering the WWI trenches and open-air museum at Cinque Torri, to making a long Italian lunch the activity of the day - Corvara and Colfosco have summer covered. Both villages sit in the Alta Badia region, known for its fine food and wine, an active lifestyle, and mountains so uniquely beautiful they’re UNESCO protected.

National parks, geological sites, mountain lakes

There are two nature parks around Corvara and Colfosco, the Puez-Geisler (or Puez Odle) and Fanes-Senes-Braies. Together they provide mile-upon-mile of pathways to explore - far more than can be covered in a single holiday - with stunning views, colourful wild flowers and various geological sites well worth a visit. For a day out, hop on the local bus and head up the road to La Villa to potter about the pretty village and grab a bite to eat next to Sompunt Lake. On your way back to Corvara, visit the 16th century Colz Castle in a picture-perfect location.

Eating your way through the Dolomites: a taste of the Italian Tyrol

You’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to eating out here; Alta Badia is one of the best regions in the Dolomites for gastronomy, whether it’s a casual pizza you’re after or a Michelin-starred meal. The key is fresh, local ingredients, from speck (cured ham) to cheese and dairy products. A mountain hut is the place to head for a low-key, traditional lunch, and they tend to have the best views of the surrounding mountains.

Family walking through a UNESCO heritage site

The Dolomite mountains are no doubt the main attraction of Corvara and Colfosco, and walking through the landscape is why most come to the region. There are so many trails to choose from; The Cascate del Pisciadu walk is roughly 8km, starting in Corvara and ending at a beautiful waterfall. For another non-technical route, take the Boe gondola from Corvara then jump on the Vallon chairlift and before you know it you’ll be enjoying 360 degree views and gentle walking trails in the sunshine. The gondola system in the area is fantastic if you're exploring with children. It means you can experience the incredible views without putting too much strain on little legs!

Whether it’s on an electric, mountain or road bike, you'll be in good company around Corvara

The whole area is crazy about biking - with over 350 routes to choose from. Hire a bike and head out, whether it's cruising along a gentle cycle path in the valley with children, or jumping on a lift to enjoy the thrill of downhill mountain biking (teens will love it!). Keen road bikers should grab an e-bike (yes, you’ll need the battery boost) and ride around the famous Sella Ronda. Though it’s not particularly long - around 65 kilometres - there’s a huge amount of up-and-down (almost 2,000 metres in altitude); it’s a bucket list cycle for good reason!
