Which is the best time of year to explore South Tyrol and the Dolomites?

For these are the times when one can truly relax in Alta Badia. There is less traffic on the roads and one can fully enjoy the landscape and the natural beauty all around.
Late summer and the start of autumn in particular are the times when the Dolomites present themselves in a literally true and magnificent light. The alpine pastures and forests take on atmospheric hues, nature gifts us with a unique interplay of light and shadow and in the evenings the rock formations glow in warm shades of red.
Once praised by Le Corbusier as the most beautiful mountain range in the world, the Dolomites deliver a fabulous and unique display of colours.
