#DolomitesVives – Long live the Dolomites

See the Dolomite mountain passes in a different light, experiencing them with the intensity of all your five senses in a responsible, eco-friendly and sustainable way.

The United Nations has designated 2017 as the International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development, as part of which the #DolomitesVives project aims to promote and protect the Dolomites as one of UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites.

From 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. every Wednesday throughout July and August, access to the Sella Pass will be reserved for pedestrians, bicycles, authorised passenger vehicles for the disabled, local public transport and electric vehicles.

The SS 242 will be closed in Miramonti in the Val Gardena valley where the road meets the SS 243 as it comes down from the Gardena Pass and into the Val di Fassa valley at the junction for the Pordoi Pass.

On these days, the Sella Pass will be transformed into a natural amphitheatre for gatherings, musical performances, food and wine events in the mountain huts and guided hikes exploring the mountain region’s geology and scenery.
