Discover 5 of the most beautiful waterfalls in the Dolomites in Italy and take your time to indulge in the beauty of the landscape on your way to them.
Not only the waterfalls are breathtaking and relaxing to watch, but the treks are easy and can be accessed by kids as well.
Waterfall of Fanes, Cortina d'Ampezzo
The Watefall of Fanes is the highest waterfall in the Dolomites, in Italy.
But this is not all.
Its suggestive canyons and the via ferrata under it make it one of the most popular destination for easy treks and hiking in the area.
We invite our Guests to reach the area by bikes (ebikes available if you are not trained enough for the Dolomites).
You have two ways to reach the centre of the canyon and get a great view of the waterfall:
- via Ferrata Giovanni Barbara, you will be walking just under the waters so mind the wet rocks
- via Ferrata Lucio Delaiti you will be crossing a wood bridge on a creek
Waterfall of Pissandro, Pieve di Cadore
Pieve di Cadore is the hometown of Titian, one of the most talented painter of the sithteenth century.
The skies he painted in some of his most famous paintings seem to celebrate the blue and white of the skies in the Dolomites.
Pieve di Cadore is also the starting point of the easy trek taking us through the small village of Nebbiù and its woods to the waterfall of Pissandro.
The waterfall of Pissandro is not as high as the Waterfall of Fanes but it does not lack a unique charm.
If you are lucky and silent, you may even happen to meet some ibex drinking at the pool under the waterfall early in the morning or at dawn.
An incredible meeting, do not you think?
Waterfalls of Comelle, Canale D'Agordo
The waterfalls of Comelle is one hour and a half drive from the centre of Cortina.
The two waterfalls can be reached via an easy trail from the small village of Gares and you won't get lost as there is plenty of road signs to them.
The trail requires trekking shoes and it is accessible for kids as well.
Favourite time of the year to visit: late spring and full summer when the falling water raises an iridescent mist in the air.
Though some think that the view of the iced waterfall in winter time is awesome as well.
So it's up to you: just do not forget to let us know your opinion about it!
Waterfall of Pile Pile, Calalzo di Cadore
Calalzo di Cadore is just one drive from Cortina.
Once there, park and reach for the "Rifugio Capanna alpini", the small mountain bar midway to the waterfall.
From the "Rifugio Casa degli Alpini" just follow the road signs to "Rifugio Galassi" and you'll reach the waterfall in 15 min walk.
The trekking is kids friendly and they will love climbing the rocks: quite an adventure for them...and for adults, too!
Waterpools and waterfall at Sospirolo
The Cadini del Brenton are large pools excavated in the rocks by the river Brenton.
Locals love to tell toddlers the pools were excavated by giants who had lived in teh area millions and millions of years ago.
The water of the pools or "cadini" as the locals call them change its colors depending ob the daylight and it's quite suggestive.
The trail to the Waterfall della Soffia runs along the Lago Mis, a little mountain lake known for its emerald green water.
This is a family-friendly trekking in the Dolomites area and the ideal place for a picnic.
And after all this walking, hiking and trekking in the Dolomites, we will be waiting with a flute of prosecco in our hotel lounge.
