Nature and landscapes that the whole world envies us, home to ancient Ladin people who have always valued and protected this mountain ecosystem, strong and fragile at the same time.
John Muir, one of the first modern conservationsts, used to say that “thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized people are beginning to find out going to the mountains is going home; that wilderness is a necessity”. And if you too are looking for unforgettable moments and harmony with nature, if you want to feel “at home” again, then there is nothing better than a sunset in the Dolomites – UNESCO World Heritage Site. Here you will find nature and landscapes that the whole world envies us, home to ancient Ladin people who have always valued and protected this mountain ecosystem, strong and fragile at the same time.
Strong, because it is impossible not to feel tiny in the presence of the imposing mountains guarding the valleys. Fragile, because the effects of climate change are already visible In fact, in addition to ever-higher temperatures and the consequent melting of glaciers, our mountains have to deal with extreme events that are increasingly frequent and severe, such as the 2018 Vaia storm that ripped open a deep wound in the heart of Alta Badia, destroying centuries-old forests. Some of you have taken care of Corvara’s forests by supporting the revival of its forests and helping to mitigate the effects of the climate crisis!
The first tree planting in Alta Badia took place during one of the two sporting events that were held in these areas: the Dolomites Bike Day and the Sellaronda Bike Day. An unmissable opportunity to combine sports, biking, nature and make a tangible gesture for the forests of Alta Badia.
