A well-known winter ski destination, the northern Italian mountains are beautiful in the summer; after the snow melts, the landscape of the Dolomites morphs into lush green valley pastures and thick forests – an idyllic setting for family adventure in the fresh mountain air. Set by wooded slopes with spellbinding views of the Tofane Mountains, Cristallo, A Luxury Collection Resort & Spa offers an authentic Belle Epoque base from which to explore and a welcoming mountain home atmosphere to return to. There is a wide array of summer activities for all ages on your doorstep here. Mountain biking, cycling or trekking are the ideal way to explore the wild nature of the mountains. For the more intrepid parents and teenagers, the via ferrata, or ‘iron roads’, are a must. Offering unprecedented panoramic views of the mountain range, these walkways are equipped with fixed cables, ladders and bridges – the very first originated in the Dolomites during the First World War.
