South Tyrol, Italy's northern most province, is a sunny region in the Italian Alps, bordering Austria and Switzerland. In South Tyrol, people with German, Italian and Ladin mother tongue have been living side by side since time immemorial which has created a unique mix of alpine tradition and an Italian way of life.
The mountain region of Alta Badia is located in the South Tyrolean Dolomites, in the southern part of Val Badia valley which divides from Val Pusteria valley at San Lorenzo.
Alta Badia is located in the southern part of the Val Badia valley, which divides from the Val Pusteria valley at San Lorenzo, where South Tyrol borders Trentino and Venetia. At the foot of impressive Dolomite summits, embedded in a large, sunny valley surrounded by pristine nature, lie the six small villages that make up the Alta Badia region: Corvara, Colfosco, La Villa, San Cassiano, Badia and La Val.
Alta Badia is like South Tyrol a region of contrasts: imposing mountain peaks, smooth meadows, dreamy alpine pastures and modern tourist infrastructure offer pleasant holidays for everyone! Let yourself be inspired by the beauty of the Dolomites and Alta Badia.
If you love mountain holidays, you will love Alta Badia – in summer and in winter.
Alta Badia, home of the Ladin speaking people, is an especially cosmopolitan and hospitable region, not the least because of its proximity to the Italian speaking regions of Trentino and Venetia.
Over the years, the little valley in the Dolomites with its Ladin people who have preserved their culture for centuries, has become one of the most popular holiday destinations in South Tyrol. Nevertheless, the Alta Badia valley managed to retain its rich natural beauty which underlines the uniqueness and magnificence of its mountainous landscape. The Dolomite peaks such as Grup dl Sela – Sella massif, Sassongher, Sas dla Crusc – Santa Croce or Conturines, as well as the natural parks Puez-Odle and Fanes-Senes-Braies are worth a visit in every season.
All year round, Alta Badia’s villages offer a wide range of sporting and holiday activities - from skiing to snowboarding, from hiking to cycling, as well as mountain climbing and horseback riding and, of course, recreation surrounded by a unique natural landscape.
