Here, in Alta Badia, activities and flavours are intertwined in the atmosphere of ancient traditions, closely bound up with their Ladin routes and with the charm of the Dolomites, that inspire numerous unmissable events both in summer and in winter.

Every winter in Alta Badia starts under the sign of the Men's Giant Slalom World Cup and, since 2015, also the Night Parallel Giant Slalom, that take place in La Villa in December on the legendary Gran Risa run, just a few steps away from the Apartment Te Paisc. In summer, however, the main sporting event is certainly Maratona dles Dolomites (the Marathon of the Dolomites) that starts in La Villa and attracts, at the beginning of July, 9000 cyclists from all over the world. Sellaronda Bike Day (in the middle of June and in the middle of September) is a great training opportunity for the Marathon or just a perfect chance to pedal along the curvy roads around the Sella Group, which are reserved for cyclists only. The Sellaronda area also hosts MTB competitions (e.g. Sellaronda Bike Hero in June) and trail running events (e.g. Sellaronda Trail Running in September with start and finish in Colfosco).
Discovering centuries-old traditions is another way to enrich your holiday in Alta Badia with the ancient Ladin culture: processions (one of the most picturesque ones takes place in La Villa on Ferragosto Holiday in the middle of August), artisans' markets, feasts and festivals, concerts of typical music and much more. Modern music bands, street artists, painters and photographers also perform willingly in the open air and in the appropriate indoor spaces.
Culinary delights are another integral part of a holiday in Alta Badia. In winter, with the project "A Taste for Skiing" you can try such tasty adventures as Gourmet Ski Safari, Sommeliers on the Slopes, Sunrise Breakfast, etc. In summer, the gourmand appointments of the initiative "Peaks of Gastronomy" will take you to a Michelin-starred picnic at Sass Dlacia (La Dolomitica), to a dinner with the bear at the Ladin museum of San Cassiano or to a lunch at the Pisciadù waterfalls in Colfosco (A Waterfall Full of Taste), just a short walk away from our Colfosco apartments.
