Day 1 - 22 Jun 2021
Content: Lago di Carezza, also known as the Karersee, is a mountain lake in the South Tyrol region of northern Italy. This beautiful mountain lake is known for its wonderful blue, sometimes even emerald green color. Around the lake there is a path of about 2,5 kilometers and almost completely flat. A walk around the lake will therefore not take longer than half an hour and will show you the lake from all sides. In the surrounding area there are several other walking routes if you’re up for a longer walk. It is located next to the road, so you don’t have to make a long, tough hike to reach this stunning place. There is a big parking lot where you can safely leave your car. The first 15 minutes are free, afterwards you pay only €1 per started hour. Next to the parking lot there’s a visitor center with a little souvenir shop, a restaurant and bar. But don’t go there for a drink with a view, as you cannot see the lake from there, it’s more for a quick bite. The lake itself is free to visit.

Content: When traveling with a van or camper you can stay the night at Pizzeria Sporthütte when you want to visit Seiser Alm early in the morning. It’s free if you have a meal at their restaurant. It’s a really nice place to stay the night and their food is great and not expensive at all.
Day 2 - 23 Jun 2021
Content: Seiser alm, also known as Alpe di Suisi, is the biggest and highest mountain meadow in Europe. It has an area of 57 km² and lies at an altitude of 1680m to 2350m. In winter it is the ideal place for a winter sport vacation. In summer it is a beautiful area to enjoy numerous walks through this wavy landscape surrounded by those impressive mountain ranges. There are various cable cars and lifts that’ll take you from one place to another or can you explore the area only by foot along many different hiking trails. Seiser Alm is most beautiful at sunrise and you can easily spend a whole day walking around the meadows.
Day 3 - 24 Jun 2021
Content: The Seceda is a 2519 meters high mountain in Val Gardena, in the middle of the dolomites. Seceda is a true paradise for hikers, mountain bikers and climbers. The real adventure seekers can even go paragliding. To reach the top of the Seceda there are different options. The easiest way to reach the summit is by taking the cable car in Ortisei. If you’re up for a challenging hike or you want to enjoy this area before or after the opening hours of the cable car, it’s also possible to hike up and/or down the mountain. Note that hiking up this mountain will take a lot of time, so make sure you leave in time. If you want to make it before sunrise or you want to see sunset, you’ll have to hike in the dark, or you can stay overnight on top of the Seceda in a mountain lodge. If you’re undecidable whether you should take the cable car or go for the hike, you can always combine both options. Cable car (both: Ortisei – Furnes & Furnes – Seceda) Adults: Single: 25,5 euro Adults double: 35 euro Parking lot cable car: 8 euro
Day 4 - 25 Jun 2021
Content: Lago di Sorapis or Lake Sorapis is a mountain lake at an altitude of 1925 metres above sea level. It’s a beautiful turquoise lake surrounded by those impressive mountain peaks and it can only be reached by foot or by helicopter. The hiking trail is about 7 km one way (so 14 km in total) and it’ll take you around 1,5 to 2 hours to reach the lake. The way back is the same way as you got there. It’s quite a tough hike with some very steep and slippery parts and cables to hold on yourself, but perfectly achievable if you’re not afraid of heights. To start the hike you park your car at Passo Tre Croci. From this point you start your hike on a gravel path behind a barrier. You’ll have to walk about 7km to reach the lake and it will take you about 1,5 to 2 hours. It’s quite a though and rocky hike along a few narrow ledges, metal stairways and some slippery parts but you’ll get some impressive views over the Dolomites along your way up. It can get busy along the way and especially at the lake so we recommend you to start your hike early in the morning.
Day 4 - 25 Jun 2021
Content: When you are traveling with a van or camper you can stay the night on the parking lot at Rifugio Auronzo and wake up in this breathtaking landscape.
Day 5 - 26 Jun 2021
Content: Tre Cime di Lavaredo, also known as Drei Zinnen, are three impressive mountain peaks and probably the most famous peaks in the Alps. It is such a jaw dropping place and therefore not surprising that they are the symbol of the dolomiti UNESCO world heritage site. You can drive up to Drei Zinnen or if you prefer, you can also hike from Lago D’Antorno up to Tre Cime but it’s quite a tough hike and will take you about 1,5 hours. Make sure you get to the entrance of the Tre Cime National Park early to avoid queuing with a lot of other cars. Once you’ve parked your car at the parking lot, you can start different hikes from this point, both long and short hikes. Tip for campers: Stay the night on the parking lot at Rifugio Auronzo and wake up in this breathtaking landscape. Road to Rifugio Auronzo Cars: 30 euro Campers: 45 euro
Day 6 - 27 Jun 2021
Content: Lago Di Braies or Pragser Wildsee is probably the most famous place among tourists in the Dolomiti, and we can’t deny that it’s really worth adding to your schedule. It’s one of the most beautiful alpine lakes in the Dolomiti and it is recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage site. Unfortunately this also means that it can get very busy during the day, especially in peak season. There is a hike you can do around the lake where you can escape from the crowd. It’s a very easy hike from approximately 3,6km and it’ll take you around 1 to 1,5 hours to finish the trail. From mid-May to the end of October there’s another option to explore this place, and at the same time escape from the crowds. You can ride the waters of the lake in a wooden rowboat. In this way you’ll also see the lake from another point of view. The water level of the lake fluctuates throughout the year. Most of the time the water level is at its lowest at the end of summer, making this the least ideal time to see this place at its best.
Content: After exploring Dolomites you can continue your trip through Italy, there’s so much to see in this gorgeous country. Or if you like to stay in the mountains, you can go and explore the peaks of Austria or Switzerland. Safe travels!
