Saus dl altonn
Precious moments to be savoured in the Dolomites UNESCO World Heritage Site
Autumn in Alta Badia right in the heart of the Dolomites UNESCO World Heritage Site offers many valuable moments to be shared and enjoyed.
With our “Saus dl Altonn” initiative (that’s Ladin for “Flavours of Autumn”) we invite you to experience this exciting season in Alta Badia by combining our unique mountain landscape with outdoor activities, local traditions, delicious food and drink, enhanced by the Ladin quality of life.

Allow yourself to be seduced by our autumnal mountain landscape! Come and visit us in September and discover for yourself our centuries old culture and the passion our people have for their land and its fruits, and take advantage of this unique opportunity to experience the breath-taking spectacle of the Alpenglow in the Dolomites.
On different days the farmer or the producers will be available in the mountain huts and will be presenting their specialities, which you may purchase there and then.
There are lots of reasons for choosing an autumn holiday in the Dolomite mountains
* The climate in autumn is pleasantly fresh and largely stable, ideal for hiking and cycling trips.
* In the evenings, the mountains are steeped in red, orange and pink hues – an amazing natural spectacle which we Ladins call the ‘Enrosadira’, the ‘Alpenglow’.
* An atmosphere of calm and serenity permeates the valley.
* Mother nature provides us with delicious seasonal products.
