Notte sulle Dolomiti
(Night on the Dolomites)

Un chiaro di luna
Che fruga le rocce

Un chiaro di stelle
che fende le crepe

Bivacchi di gocce
Le nubi in parete

(italian poetry by anonymous – plaque close to Croda da Lago massif)


Night on the Dolomites. Priceless experience.

The atmosphere of the Dolomites at night is unique. Those who love the mountains cannot miss the opportunity to experience, at least once, an evening excursion or a night in a bivouac at high altitude. The light of the moon and the stars in the high altitude, especially in the clearest nights, gives the sensation of being much closer to them than to the villages of the valley. Breathtaking views, feeling in direct contact with the sky, crisp air that fills the lungs, that sense of completeness and total freedom that makes you feel in touch with the universe. A priceless feeling!

Spending an evening the Dolomites means rediscovering the most poetic meaning of life. And it may be that you will experience somehow the emotions of those who have passed before you. Like our “anonymous climber” who left his thought on a plaque in the Croda Da Lago mountains area. This is also alpine tradition!

Dolomites, pure evocative power.

All the mountains and particularly the Dolomites, have a great evocative and fascinating power. The contact with the dolomite rocks provides a particular sense of solidity, strength and eternity.  Just think that the formation process of the Dolomites begins 250 million years ago, from a coral reef base and warm and deep seas! This is why the dolomite, the rock of the Dolomites studied for centuries and with unique characteristics, is defined as “revolutionary rock“!
