The Dolomites in Val Gardena deserve to be admired in their every single side, at all times of the day: they are able to astonish each time as the first, always showing spectacular.
You will notice by observing them at dawn, in the morning, during the afternoon, at sunset, in the evening and at night, they’ll show themselves to you in a different way, making you fall in love once again with their beauty.

The experience ends up with a traditional dinner in a mountain hut.

- Price: € 30 – € 15 for VGA partner S. Cristina
