Autumn in the Dolomites

The Burning Dolomites – a unique natural spectacle

In autumn, the low sun creates a special evening light and the Alpen glow transforms the pale Dolomite mountains into glowing rocks, making them appear to be on fire. We call this unique natural spectacle the “Burning Dolomites”, attracting many tourists in this time of the year.

Our free hiking guide organizes special sunset tours in Val Gardena during the autumn season to witness this natural phenomenon.
