Tradition and nature
Alta Badia, one of South Tyrol’s most beautiful valleys, is nestled into the spectacular natural monument known as the Dolomites. Mother Nature is the star of the show here: she seduces and enchants visitors with idyllic forests and towering mountains, crystal-clear lakes and vast pastures. Here, nature is valued and protected by the expansive Puez-Odle and Fanes-Senes-Braies natural parks and crisscrossed by countless hiking trails. During the winter, scenic routes set the stage for blissful skiing, with over 130 km of perfectly groomed slopes served by modern lifts.
But Alta Badia is also a perfect union between nature and the cultural identity of the ancient Ladin people, whose welcoming character has given the valley a reputation as a place of warm hospitality. This nature and this culture are also reflected in the celebrated local cuisine, which features gourmet specialties created by very talented chefs. Meticulous attention to fresh products and quality is the norm – just as it is in the Col Alto Hotel kitchen, which reinterprets indigenous recipes and comes up with delicious gourmet recipes. A memorable holiday awaits in Alta Badia.
