The Mountain Passes
Immerse yourself in the unique atmosphere of the Dolomites and surrender to the thrill of mountain roads that wind their way up and down through passes and valleys. Reaching a mountain-top, treat yourself to a walk, drinking in the majestic panoramas that open up as you move, then return to your car or your motorbike and plunge down more spectacular roads through this magnificent landscape until you reach the next pass and look out over yet another astonishing view.
The Passo Giau, a legendary stage finish on the Giro d’Italia bike race, offers unbelievable vistas towards great peaks such as Marmolada, Tofane, Cristallo, Sorapiss, Croda da Lago, Lastoni di Formin, Cadini di Misurina. Not far from Cortina lies the Passo Falzarego, which is in turn close to Passo Valparola with its superb miniature lake. Then there are passes like Fedaia, Sella, Campolongo, Staulanza, Duran, San Pellegrino, Pordoi, Cibiana or the Passo Tre Croci which leads to the spectacular Tre Cime (Three Peaks) of Lavaredo… and the list of other fantastic drives among the Dolomites is long indeed! The hotel is within easy reach of these mountain passes.
