Where are the Dolomites located?
The administrative subdivision of the Dolomites into the 5 Italian Provinces of Belluno, Bolzano (Südtirol), Pordenone, Trento and Udine

The Agordino, institutionally located in the Province of Belluno (Veneto Region) on the border with Alto Adige – Südtirol and Trentino, is a unique and particular place: here you will not find the cultural, linguistic and gastronomic standard of Trentino or South Tyrol, but rather the unique fusion of Ladin elements (in the Agordo Municipalities of Colle Santa Lucia and Livinallongo del Col di Lana), indigenous (Rocca Pietore – Marmolada), from the Cadore area (Selva di Cadore) and Venetian (Conca Agordina, Val Cordevole, Val Biois, Val del Mis), a certainly original mix to be discovered, far from the usual clichés.

The target group of customers to which the Agordino is well suited is that of enterprising and sporty visitors, in search of the natural, the wild, the original to live and explore: nowhere else in the UNESCO World Heritage, even less in large tourist resorts, you can enjoy the nature of the Dolomites in a more perfect and unspoiled form.

Moreover, due to the great presence of peaks, the Agordino is better suited to mountaineers, hikers, lovers of mountain biking and skiing in its various forms (so for sportsmen and active vacationers) than tourists looking for boutiques for shopping and local fashion, to which we recommend the nearby Cortina d’Ampezzo or the centers of Trentino-Alto Adige. The Agordino is the ideal place for those who love the mountains, certainly not the worldliness. Our rich agricultural tradition, carried on with great passion still today by many Agordino farmers and breeders, offers our visitors a wide range of organic products and many tasty dishes; in Agordino there are no monocultures or intensive farming and consequent massive use of pesticides and pollution; air and water are our best business cards along with our beautiful Dolomites.

If you are looking for all this, we are waiting for you in the valley of the Cordevole stream, the heart of the Dolomites!
