No. of pictures: 25 pictures
The persons who just discovered Dolomiten and Alta Badia Region, know that, except excellent conditions for skiing, (since November till April) and pleasant climate for tourist activities and relax in summer, this region is most beautiful in autumn.Everything seems to be more live and intensive, including colours of nature, illumination, sceneries of mountains and forests. Clear and „fresh“ days are perfect for walks and tours along mountain valleys and national parls, including mounting on Dolomiten peaks or a drive on mountain bike.
