Spring in the Dolomites: When the sun squints for the first time…
Perceiving the spring awake
Have you ever been witnessing the mountains of South Tyrol awakening from its winter sleep? This burst of fresh energy and natural vitality is experienced directly. But before our mountains shake ice and snow from her monumental body, there is one last winter fun: the March snow actually invites to the slopes in many ski resorts, because the sun has begun to warm and you can ski in light clothes. There are only a few days available but using them is the perfect welcome for your spring in the Dolomites.
Walking towards the sun
When the alpine vegetation breaks new run, there is a lot to see. On the lush meadows, the flowers of crocuses and butter tubers charge. A glittering insect world draws its rounds. Even the bells of the cows are to hear again. And the blue spring sky lights you the way. Of course, it is advisable to hike in the valley in this time. The Spring Awakening’s a very gradual change and the snow takes place only gradually back to the summit. The murmur of the newly-filled streams at lower elevations is more appealing.
Follow the blossoming smell
You can follow the popular walking routes or just the scent of the flowers sea in which inconspicuous slope surfaces turn into with the first warm rays of the sun. Also cycling tours make fun now. One can confidently make a track that might be too strenuous in the oppressive heat. Many of our guests appreciate very particularly this precious moment of transition from dwindling winter to new gleaming spring in the Dolomites. It’s like coming so early in the year as one of the first guests to a lavish celebration of nature.
