Experience the Dolomite passes with #Dolomitesvives

Reach Passo Sella with alternative means of transport

To discover and experience the charm of the Dolomites in a responsible, eco-friendly and sustainable manner: this is the challenge accepted by Trentino and Alto Adige/Südtirol who, as of last summer, promote the #Dolomitesvives project in order to contribute to the appreciation and protection of the Dolomite territory, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

That is why, from 23 July to 31 August, from Monday to Friday, from 9 am to 4 pm, access to Passo Sella will be regulated: the number of vehicles that may access the Pass every hour, in fact, will be restricted based on the time of day, so as to avoid access peaks and subsequent traffic jams.

However, in the true spirit of #Dolomitesvives, the idea is to encourage the use of alternative means of transport and to (re)discover the mountain as a place for all five senses: leave your car at your accommodation facility or in the parking lots at the bottom of the valley, and reach Passo Sella by public transport, by skilift, by bicycle or on foot. In this way, we can all make a precious contribution to the protection of this unique natural treasure.

It is still possible to reach Passo Sella with your own vehicle, by requesting a Dolomitesvives Pass, which you can obtain through the Openmove App, through the web page www.openmove.com or directly at the #Dolomitesvives information points as of 23 July 2018. The pass can be requested the day before or the same day of your access to the Pass, and is valid for a given time, which refers to the time you drive up to the pass. You can go back down, on the other hand, at any time you wish.

Guests who are staying at accommodation facilities on Passo Sella, on the other hand, do not need to request a pass, and they can access the Pass on the day of arrival at any time, showing confirmation of their booking at the checkpoint. On arrival at the hotel, they will receive a DOLOMITESVIVES PASS that is valid for the entire duration of their stay.

The #Dolomitesvives project is promoted by the Autonomous Provinces of Trento and Bolzano, in collaboration with the UNESCO Dolomites Foundation.
