In order to perceive the particular spirit of Alta Badia, it's a must to explore the maze of paths and mule tracks, accompanied by the scent of fresh hay and by the vivid colours of Alpine meadows. Discover the marvels disseminated along the 400 km of hiking trails that vary from easy walks to breath taking routes for hiking experts. To facilitate the task, take advantage of 16 summer mountain lifts, open from mid-June till late September.
Alta Badia attracts numerous cyclists, eager to challenge the routes of Giro d'Italia (the Tour of Italy) and Maratona dles Dolomites (the Marathon of the Dolomites). Those, who, prefer to move by mountain bike, will also be spoilt for choice among the trails throughout the entire Alta Badia region that allow to practice touring, enduro, freeride and downhill. At your disposal there are mountain lifts with the possibility of bike transportation, such as the Gardenaccia chairlift, located just a few metres away from the Loretta Apartments, that facilitates the access to the downhill trails of the Gardenaccia area.
There are numerous attractions reserved in Alta Badia for families with children, such as the Deer Park Paraciora between La Villa and Badia, the Animal Park and the Adventure Park in Colfosco, as well as the Movimënt Parks, one of which is located on top of Piz La Ila, reachable with the cable car that departs only some metres away from the Apartments Loretta and Te Paisc.
