Where to stay at Passo Campolongo

The Campolongo Pass, located on the border between Veneto and Alto Adige, offers two valleys of exceptional beauty for your stay: Arabba in Veneto and Alta Badia in Alto Adige. These valleys, distinct in their characteristics and atmospheres, represent two different faces of the Dolomites, each with its own charm and peculiarity.

Arabba: Cool climate, history and tradition of the Dolomites

Arabba nestles at the foot of the Dolomites, in a narrow valley less exposed to the sun, making it one of the coolest areas during summer heat waves.

Its position makes it a privileged starting point for exploring the surrounding natural wonders, such as the Pordoi Pass or the breathtaking panorama from Porta Vescovo, accessible by cable car. This natural "balcony" offers an incomparable view of the Marmolada glacier, offering unique emotions to those who visit it.

Although Arabba offers cheaper holiday solutions compared to Alta Badia, being a smaller town, the variety of accommodation is less wide, but this does not take away the charm of an intimate and welcoming stay, perfect for those seeking tranquility and contact with nature.

Alta Badia: Sun, Excellence and Quality Services

Alta Badia stands out for its wide and sunny valley, which today attracts selected tourism willing to invest more for the quality of the holiday.

This area is renowned for its excellence in service and hospitality, offering a wide range of activities for all tastes and ages: young people, elderly people and families find here the ideal place for an unforgettable holiday.

Although prices may be higher than in Arabba, the value of the offer in Alta Badia amply justifies the investment, guaranteeing exclusive experiences in one of the most popular mountain areas of South Tyrol.

The Choice of Living Room: Between Tradition and Modernity

Whether you opt for the tranquility and coolness of Arabba or the wide offer and sun of Alta Badia, reaching the Campolongo Pass remains simple and convenient from both valleys.

The decision on where to stay will depend on personal preferences relating to the desired atmosphere, the type of holiday sought and the budget available. Both destinations offer access to uncontaminated nature, hiking routes and breathtaking Dolomite panoramas, guaranteeing a unique and enriching holiday experience, immersed in the wonders of the Dolomites.
