A costume made of pine-cones? A forest with fairytales to tell? A spot of climbing? Or maybe a walk in good company or a trip astride a marvellous horse? Kids, you’ll be spoilt for choice in the Val di Zoldo this coming summer, with a host of fantastic adventures waiting for you!
Every Summer, the Green Week for Kids offers younger visitors to the Val di Zoldo a fun opportunity to discover the traditions of the Dolomites and the secrets of nature, as well as to learn to respect the mountains, thanks to a series of dedicated fun activities organised by the tourist operators in the area.
During July and August, kids will have the chance every day of the week to take part in different, free educational workshops, where they can learn more about farm animals, prepare (and taste!) some delicious mountain dairy cheese, or listen to the fascinating legends of the storytelling gnomes of Dognomitico.
These experiences are ideal for the whole family to enjoy together, as they learn more about the wonderful world of the Dolomites.
