People & Place
The Dolomites, also known as the “Pale Mountains”, are a mountain range in the northern Italian Alps. The Dolomite region is characterized by jagged peaks and ridges with scenic valleys nestled in between. This incredible hiking alpine lodge-to-lodge trip winds through the staggering Dolomites mountain range, through meadows, valleys and postcard-perfect villages.
For many years, the Pale Mountains in the South Tyrol and in the Veneto Region that today comprise the UNESCO World Heritage Site remained unexplored by outsiders. Only a few inhabitants of the valleys carved out within the mountains had some knowledge of their unique beauty.
Its inhabitants speak different languages: German is spoken in the north and northwest; Italian in the south; and Ladin in the central area – in the four valleys that branch off the Sella Massif (Val di Fassa, Val Gardena, Val Badia, and Livinallongo) – and in Ampezzo. The Ladin language is thought to have originated from the Etruscan civilization in Northern Italy that predated the Roman civilization.
