Full description
After being picked up from your hotel in Cortina, start the tour by driving along the historical old Roman road SR48 which runs through the Dolomites. Receive a fancy map with your itinerary of the day to better understand the trip and to remember it. Encounter the first mountains above the Cortina valley including the Cristallo, Pomagagnon, Sorapiss, and Antelao, then Becco di Mezzodì, Tofana, 5 Torri and Croda da Lago. Admire the views and take photos. Throughout the tour, your driver will be happy to accommodate stops for pictures and provide information about the mountains, history, and traditions of the area. Continue on until you reach Passo Falzarego where you will have the possibility to board the Lagazuoi cable car which offers amazing views from its terrace.  Learn about how this area has an important WWI history due to the struggles between Italians and Austrians for territory gain. Head on through Passo Valparola with views of Marmolada Glacier and Alta Badia Valley. Then, drive down to San Cassiano and Corvara and up again to Passo Gardena facing the square-shaped Sella group of mountains. Arrive at Selva di Val Gardena, famous for its wood carvings workshops which you will have an opportunity to visit.  Go further through Passo Sella facing the Sassolungo group of mountains and Marmolada again. Arrive at the top of the Passo Pordoi and enjoy the Terrace of the Dolomites cable car (if timings permits). Drive further through the scenic Passo Giau facing Croda da Lago mountain. Drive down back into the Cortina Valley where you will be dropped off back at your hotel.
