Summer in Italy's Dolomites is simply stunning. The meadows are covered in wild flowers, it's the perfect time to get active with hiking, mountain biking and rock climbing. South Tyrol offers an awe-inspiring range of jagged peaks and large alpine pastures, making it an adventure playground and a natural home for Nordic walking, climbing and hiking. The South Tyrolean Wine Road is a must on a warm summer's day. Italy's oldest wine road takes in three cycling routes along the Adige (Etsch) River and through the orchards that thrive in the valley. As the trails have no demanding grades, visitors of all ages can enjoy winding through apple orchards and vineyards.
