Discover the famous Dolomite mountains on a day trip to Lake Garda

The Dolomites are a mountain range located in North-eastern Italy. They form a part of the Southern Limestone Alps and extend from the River Adige to the Piave Valley. They feature sublime scenic views that offer a view of the contrasting face of North Italy and complements a holiday in Lake Garda very well. The tour, which includes the famous Gardena Valley and Ortisei, can be added to any Lake Garda holiday booked through us - please speak to your personal travel adviser to add this Dolomites day tour to your package.


Tour itinerary

On a typical Dolomites day tour from Lake Garda, you can enjoy the following itinerary.

First stop:

  • Gardena Valley, a world-famous winter sports area, on the northern side of the Dolomites in South Tyrol. Here you can visit Ortisei, which is a charming South Tirolean village, where you will have free time.
  • If you wish, you can then take the cable car and enjoy spectacular views over the Dolomites at an altitude of approx. 2500 metres (7600 ft) for an additional fee.

Second stop:

  • You will leave Ortisei after lunch and enjoy a coach ride up the Sella Pass, which is 2240 metres (6788 ft) high. You will stop for a short time here (15 minutes), if weather and traffic permit, as it is a great photo opportunity.

Third stop:

  • After you descend towards Canazei aboard the coach, you will be taken on a journey through the Fassa Valley into the Ega Valley, where a last stop is scheduled at Lake Carezza - a jewel in the Dolomites area with a perfect panoramic view of the Catinaccio and the Latemar mountain chains.

After your day enjoying the Dolomites, you will be returned to Lake Garda by coach.
