Bolzano: Best of the Dolomites in One Day Private Tour

1. Bolzano: Best of the Dolomites in One Day Private Tour

Following a pickup from your hotel, you’ll head first to Bolzano, gateway to the Dolomites and capital of the province South Tyrol. Cross the Eggental valley that runs eastward between the Rosengarten massif and the Latemar mountain range. This road was built in 1894 when the territory was part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Stop at Lake Carezza, the most beautiful lake of the western Dolomites, for a 30-minute break and walk around the lake. Next, arrive at Karerpass where you’ll see the historical Residence Grand Hotel Carezza, built in 1893, this was the first luxury hotel in the Dolomites and has hosted very important guests including the Empress Sissi, Winston Churchill, and Agatha Christie. From the Karerpass you’ll reach 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 group. From here, begin a long series of 27 hairpin bends that will lead you to the famous Pordoi Pass at an altitude of 2,239m above sea level. Enjoy a one-hour break or take the cable car to Sass Pordoi at an altitude of 2,950m. From the Pordoi Pass, go down to the village of Arabba and continue east to the Falzarego Pass, the gateway to the eastern Dolomites. You’ll reach Cortina d’Ampezzo, Italy’s premier mountain resort known as the Pearl of the Dolomites where the Winter Olympic Games were hosted in 1956. Cortina, together with Milan, will once again host the Winter Olympics in 2026. From Cortina, the next stop will be Lake Misurina with its incredible panoramic view of Three Peaks of Lavaredo. The lake, with its view of the peaks to the north and Sorapis to the south, is the most famous image of the Dolomites in the world. Just 20 minutes from Lake Misurina you’ll have the opportunity for a brief stop at another important lake in the Eastern Dolomites, Lake Dobbiaco. From Dobbiaco, you’ll reach the extreme northeast of Italy just a few kilometers from the border with Austria for the great finale of the day: a visit to the famous Lake Braies. From here, you’ll return to Bolzano via the Pusteria and the Isarco valleys.

This was hands down the best tour we have ever taken and was the highlight of our two weeks in Europe. Alessandro Scacchetti was our guide and he was very knowledgeable, a super safe driver on the crazy winding roads, and gave us a once in a lifetime experience seeing the Dolomites for the first time. HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS GUIDE, you won't be disappointed.

Alessandro was the perfect guide in matters ranging from knowledge of the area, to getting us around safely in the Dolomites mountain region. The overall schedule was very well managed and we did not feel rushed, and had a good amount of time at every location. Highly recommended!

Beloved all, Alessandro is fantastic, it was a place that we would love to visit, and Alessandro helped in the realization, we will certainly come back in the summer to repeat this experience. Thank you Alessandro and Silvania.

Our guide was Angelo and I can't give him enough praise. His knowledge of the unique geology was complete and his love of the area insured a completely enjoyable experience. Also, the Get Your Guide experience was excellent.

Can recommend this activity 100%, Alessandro was a great guide with great knowledge about the area and great energy. The 10 hours flew by.
