Going on a day trip to ‘The Dolomites’ while you are on holidays in South Tyrol is a must. Among the Alps the Dolomites for me are the most spectacular ones due to their difference in shape and colour. That might also be one reason why UNESCO has named them a World Heritage Site. Seeing those massive rocks that were formed millions of years ago is worth a thousand words, but instead of boring you with words, I created a little video of my trip, that you can find at the end of this post :-))
Part of your day trip should be a stop at Lake Carezza which is also known as the rainbow lake due to its spectacular colours. The story goes that a sorcerer once hurled a rainbow into the lake, since then it has shimmered that colourful. Unfortunately, you are not allowed to go for a swim there. It was so tough for me to not to climb the wooden fence and take a dip in this clear blue water.
The final stop of your trip should be at one of the lifts that takes you up the Dolomites. We picked one that took us up to 3000 meters. What we saw on the ‘Balcony of the Dolomites’ was sort of unreal. What really surprised me was the colour of the stones up there. The entire platform was white.
I forgot to take my sunglasses with me and I am really sensitive to light. The light reflections made it almost impossible for me to keep my eyes open. Fortunately, my Dad had one more pair of sunglasses so that I was able to enjoy the stunning view. Have you ever been to the Dolomites and what did you do there? Let me know in a comment.
