Swimming in the Dolomites
Dive into happiness
Simply dive in, feel yourself weightless, let your muscles relax - nothing is more refreshing after a day out in the Dolomites than leaping into the cool water!
Open air swimming in the Val d'Ega
Savouring the Alpenglow as the giant peaks of the Catinaccio and Latemar massifs form a cinematic backdrop to a day in the pool. Collepietra too has an open-air pool where visitors can crawl, dive, float or simply mess about after a long day’s hiking or biking. The nearby provincial capital of Bolzano offers plenty of water fun, with a children's club, swimming lessons, tournaments and music evenings. And the lakes in the surrounding area - the Laghetto di Fié, the Lago del Colle at Aldino and the Monticolo and Caldaro lakes – let you experience the joys of swimming in nature!
