Corvara: a relaxing stay or an active holiday in the Dolomites
No doubt we don’t need to go into further details about the village of Corvara. It is situated 1,568 metres above sea level and plays an important role in the history of South Tyrol tourism. As early as the second half of the 18th century, local youngsters were guiding explorers and students to the then largely uncharted peaks of the Dolomites. In the 1930s the first ski school of Alta Badia was founded and just ten years later Italy’s first chair lift was opened on the Col Alto. Today Corvara counts as one of the best holiday destinations in the Dolomites, without having lost any of its original charm as a mountain village.
