Full description
Depart Bolzano at the gateway to the Dolomite Mountains, and cross the Ega Valley on a road built in 1895 between the Rosengarten and Latemar mountains when the territory was part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Stop at Lake Carezza to admire the most beautiful lake in the Dolomite Mountains, and benefit from 30 minutes of free time to take a stroll around the lake if you desire. Next, journey towards the Costalunga Pass and see the historical luxury Grand Hotel Carezza, where former guests include the Empress Sissi, Winston Churchill and Agatha Christie. Continue to the Fassa Valley in Trentino, and pass through the towns of  Vigo di Fassa and Canazei to arrive under the imposing peaks of the Sella massif. Next, travel a long series of 27 hairpin bends (switchbacks) en route to the Pordoi Pass 2,239 meters above sea level. Stay for 1 hour, and take the cable car to Sass Pordoi, 2,950 meters above sea level (optional) when it's open (late May until mid-October and Christmas to Easter). Turn back on yourself and return to the Sella Pass to see the impressive vertical walls of the massif right before your eyes. Admire the glacier of Marmolada (3,343 meters) and majestic Sassolungo (3,181 meters), the most famous mountain in the Gardena Valley. After a 10-minute break to take photos, travel down the Sella Pass and enter he Gardena Valley, where you can explore its largest town with a 1-hour stop in Ortisei. Find a nice place for lunch before the return journey to Bolzano.

Great trip with an excellent tour leader Alessandro!

Took 3 day tours to see the Dolomites, with Alessandro from Excellent trips with very good explanations of both historical sites and natural geography of South Tyrol. Efficient pace without being too rushed and flexible itinerary. Highly recommended for anyone looking to see all the key points of interest in the Dolomites!

The trip exceeded my expectations! Alessandro was an incredible and knowledgeable guide. From the moment he picked us up at the hotel, he gave us all the information on the most beautiful spots in the Dolomites, he was a very cautious and attentive driver, something so important when you drive those steep mountain roads with lots of curves! The landscapes were just breathtaking! I highly recommend his services! Bravissimo Alessandro!

Owe some trip

Thanks for our tour guide Alex to introduce us such a beautiful place. We were there on 1 Apr 2018 and luckily it was a really nice weather day. We took the cable car to Sas Pordoi and it is so beautiful! Thanks Alex's winter jacket so that we won't cold to death in the mountains. He also very nice to dropped us off at Santa maddalena. It is a amazing place too. We had a really good time there. 感謝我們的導遊Alex開車帶我們到處跑,我幫我們介紹山脈!我們很幸運碰到了很好的天氣,從山谷到山頂一路上感覺到窗外風景的變幻!天氣也變的很冷,感謝他貼心的準備厚外套!這真的是很棒的旅程!大推!
