Corvara/Planac - Pralongià - Bioch - Arlara
Hike over the Pralongià plateau
Overview: The Pralongià plateau stands out as an island of green among the pale shades of the beautiful Dolomite rocks, gently dipping plains take the place of jagged peaks, with a sea of flowers and extensive terrain just perfect for hiking, with endless views. The plateau can also be reached by chairlift. Leaving from up on high, you can undertake enjoyable hiking expeditions, as long or as short as you want, down in all directions.
