Creative Hiking and Cycling in the Dolomites

Travel to the north of Italy for creative hiking and cycling in the Dolomites, and other outdoor activities and sports. I’ve been helping to make it with cooperation of local tourism office and association since 2013. These are the mountains of Vette Feltrine (National Park of Belluno Dolomites), Pale di San Martino — Paneveggio (Primiero), Lagorai — Cima d’Asta and Alps di Fiemme. It is also a great place for eco tourism in just 100-150 km from Venice / Verona.
