Sunday 22 Sept
We are organising an optional excursion on Sunday, Sept. 22 to see one of the UNESCO World heritages — the Dolomites. Prepare, since we are going to climb up the Catinaccio (it) / Rosengarten (de) massif. But do not be afraid of the steep mountains. Our idea is to offer you a comfortable, guided hike with absolutely breathtaking views. The duration of the excursion is 2h30min circa. Detailed information is provided below. Feel free to contact us in case you have questions.
The shuttle costs will be covered by the school organisation committee. However, those volunteering for the hike will be asked to pay additional 14€ — the cost of the chairlifts.
Since the hike is going to take place at an altitude of more than 2K meters, the temperature is expected to be from 8° to 15°.
The duration of each ride is 10 min circa. If you are afraid of heights, please consider that we are going to take chairlifts, that is, with your legs hanging freely.
Comfortable shoes with good grip are recommended. Hikers should bring their own water and, if needed, a snack. We are not planning to stop at any hut.
For curious hikers, here is the map of the massif.
In case of bad weather, the backup plan is to visti the Roncolo (it) /Runkelstein (de) castle, which is easily reachable from Bolzano, on foot or by public transport. In this case we will not provide any shuttle. You will need to pay the entrance ticket of 8€, with possibly extra 2.70€ for a guide. A single bus ride costs 1.50€.
