Spring is that one season of the year which surprises for its variety of contrasts. The snow-capped Dolomites summits, rising into the sky, overlook the sea of flowers that cover the mountain pastures and fields down in the valleys. A picture-perfect setting, with birds happily singing to the tune of babbling brooks and roaring waterfalls, the water flowing downwards towards the further valleys.
While the days lengthen and temperatures rise, the weather in May is still somewhat mercurial.

Spring is a season of hope, a taster of the warmer months around the corner. Magic is in the air: crystal-clear, sparkling lakes appear overnight, created by the pooling of meltwater, and disappear in a matter of a few weeks, sinking into the soil and leaving behind a lush, green meadow. The fickle weather also adds a dash of dramatic elements as nature slowly awakens.

The very special highlights of the Secret Dolomites in Val Gardena include the mysterious lake "Lech de Ciampedel te Val" and the special path "Troi dala Posta mistich". Experience a very special mystical time in Val Gardena!

    A classic for the cyclists. The four-pass tour Sellaronda, is certainly one of the absolute highlights in the life of a cyclist.

    Top–notch sportive performances and breathtaking views are part and parcel of this trail competition. It’s no walk in the park but the reward will be well worth it. The Dolomites’ Saslong half marathon will kick off at June, taking athletes right across the picturesque landscape of the Sassolungo Group
