Day 3: VERONA - BOLZANO
Buffet Breakfast at your hotel. Today you will experience a beautiful trekking in the Dolomites. There are a few summits that have come to symbolise the word “mountain”. The Tre Cime di Lavaredo would certainly top an imaginary hit list of these. Many people have seen the Tre Cime in illustrations hundreds of times and think that they know them, but the moment you see them "in nature" is a moment not to be forgotten. This proposal is circular and unforgettable hike around the Three Peaks of Lavaredo. The Tre Cime di Lavaredo (Three peaks of Lavaredo) are a bizarre and striking alpenstock belonging to the Sesto Dolomites, mainly characterised by its distinctive form. Due to this special shape, these three pinnacles are world-famous and are considered to be the symbol of the (Sesto) Dolomites. The famous alpenstock consists of the Cima Grande (2,999 m) which is the pinnacle in the middle, the Cima Piccola (2,857 m) and the Cima Ovest (west peak, 2,973 m). The view on the north face of the Tre Cime di Lavaredo is one of the most famous alpine images and views all over the world. The day will start with a transfer by car through the Isarco Valley and Pusteria Valley to Misurina Lake (120 km-2 hours); from Lake Misurina (photo stop) we will climb up to the Auronzo Refuge (2.333 m) with the toll road of 7 km. After trekking: if there is time we will visit the famous Lake Braies, close to the Three Peaks (30 minutes stop). Lunch break as you prefer: packed lunch or at a refuge along the way. Back to Bolzano, free time. Dinner on your own and overnight.

In just one day, you can ride some 40 kilometres (24 mi) of runs without ever having to take your skis off and without ever riding the same slope twice. The one-of-a-kind ski circuit embedded in the breathtaking landscape of the Dolomites takes you over 4 Dolomite passes - the Campolongo Pass, Pordoi Pass, Sella Pass and Gardena Pass and to five villages: Arabba, Canazei, Selva Gardena and Corvara and Colfosco in Alta Badia. Travel by car from Bolzano and in one hour we reach Selva di Val Gardena, the departure of the ski tour where you can rent the equipment if necessary (own expense); you can also have a lunch break in one of the many mountain huts along the ski runs (own expense). At the end of the Sella Ronda Ski Tour you will be back to Selva Val Gardena and by car to Bolzano again. The runs are suited for fairly experienced skiers who are in normal physical condition. If you want a more challenging activity, you have the choice of some recommendable detours such as the giant slalom run Gran Risa in La Villa/Alta Badia or the downhill run Saslong in St. Cristina/Val Gardena.
