Highs & Lows

Lago di Braies - yes it is as beautiful as in the pictures!

Lago di Carezza - you have to drive a rather long detour and it is "just" one of many beautiful lakes.

Q & A

  • What would you have changed?

    I would have left out Lago di Carezza. It is a beautful lake and if it lies within your route, you should definitely go for it! However, when you need to take a detour of 1-2 hours, it is not worth it in my opinion. There are countless beautiful lakes in the Dolomites :)

  • Anything go wrong during the trip?

    We wanted to visit the Tre Crime, but unfortunatey there was still a lot of snow! If this is a must visit for you, you should consider to go during summer (July, August), because in June there might be too much snow to drive up to the parking lot.

  • What tips would you give a friend?

    Definitely go off-season! Check for the summer holidays for Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Italy - and try to avoid this time ;)

  • Packing tips?

    Do not forget your hiking books, you will need them! And nuts are always good on the go, especially during a hike

  • Transportation Tips?

    If you ave the chance to take a camper during summer - go for it!

  • Booking details?

    If you are looking for great campground, use the app park4night! You find the costs, but also reviews from travelers who have been there previously. Very helpful!
