Geocaching: Resciesafrom 10:00 o’clock a.m.

Geocaching is an outdoor treasure hunting game where players try to find hidden containers, called geocaches, with the using of GPS devices.
Geocaching combines technology with outdoor fun. It provides a good opportunity to explore the local and wider environment. Caches are usually so hidden and disguised that they will not be found or recognized by outsiders. Furthermore, the principle is to maintain the caches hided and unobserved as possible. Otherwise there is a risk that the caches will be found or lost by outsiders.

From Stevia to „Burning Dolomites“ at Alpe Juacfrom 3:30 p.m.

The latest proposal from Val Gardena is certainly one not to miss, for we are offering the chance to see one of the world’s most spectacular natural phenomena. The phenomenon in question is that of the ‘Burning Dolomites’: between mid-September and the beginning of November when the colours of the larches become ever more vivid and the sun as sunset approaches seems to literally burn over was witnessed by residents only or the occasional passer-by, but now Val Gardena has decided to organise events so as to allow all to experience this unique happening. From 12 September to 2 November 2018 two different “Experiences”, shall be organised. The ‘Experiences’ will be two guided excursions of a half-day or a whole day, both focused on allowing participants to admire the ‘burning’ of the Dolomites peaks at sunset. The area is of course a UNESCO World Natural Heritage and in both cases the groups shall return home under torchlight with the starry skies above.

Burning Dolomites from the panorama terrace "Sëurasas"from 4:00 o’clock p.m.

The latest proposal from Val Gardena is certainly one not to miss, for we are offering the chance to see one of the world’s most spectacular natural phenomena. The phenomenon in question is that of the ‘Burning Dolomites’: between mid-September and the beginning of November when the colours of the larches become ever more vivid and the sun as sunset approaches seems to literally burn over was witnessed by residents only or the occasional passer-by, but now Val Gardena has decided to organise events so as to allow all to experience this unique happening. From 12 September to 2 November two different “Experiences”, shall be organised. The ‘Experiences’ will be two guided excursions of a half-day, both focused on allowing participants to admire the ‘burning’ of the Dolomites peaks at sunset. The area is of course a UNESCO World Natural Heritage and in both cases the groups shall return home under torchlight with the starry skies above.

Geocaching is an outdoor treasure hunting game where players try to find hidden containers, called geocaches, with the using of GPS devices.
Geocaching combines technology with outdoor fun. It provides a good opportunity to explore the local and wider environment. Caches are usually so hidden and disguised that they will not be found or recognized by outsiders. Furthermore, the principle is to maintain the caches hided and unobserved as possible. Otherwise there is a risk that the caches will be found or lost by outsiders.

The latest proposal from Val Gardena is certainly one not to miss, for we are offering the chance to see one of the world’s most spectacular natural phenomena. The phenomenon in question is that of the ‘Burning Dolomites’: between mid-September and the beginning of November when the colours of the larches become ever more vivid and the sun as sunset approaches seems to literally burn over was witnessed by residents only or the occasional passer-by, but now Val Gardena has decided to organise events so as to allow all to experience this unique happening. From 12 September to 2 November 2018 two different “Experiences”, shall be organised. The ‘Experiences’ will be two guided excursions of a half-day or a whole day, both focused on allowing participants to admire the ‘burning’ of the Dolomites peaks at sunset. The area is of course a UNESCO World Natural Heritage and in both cases the groups shall return home under torchlight with the starry skies above.
