The 3 most famous Dolomites elopement locations
QUITE POSSIBLY THE PRETTIEST LAKE IN THE WORLD
One of the most iconic and picturesque locations in the Dolomites is Lake Braies, a pristine jewel nestled amidst lush greenery and towering peaks. This enchanting alpine lake, also known as Lago di Braies, offers a magical setting for your elopement.
For a truly exclusive experience, consider renting the boat house and two boats privately for 90 minutes during the serene early morning hours. Best months to visit the lake: May, June, September and October.
THE ‘HIDDEN GEM’ THAT’S ALL OVER INSTAGRAM
Close to the most famous Dolomites hike (Tre Cime), the Cadini di Misurina viewpoint offers a sense of grandeur and seclusion. It can get a little busy, especially during the day in summer, but the short hike to this viewpoint offers many beautiful spots that make it worth to visit even if there are a few people around. It’s easy to get to when the road for the Tre Cime hike is open (June-October) otherwise the hike is a lot longer and harder.
THE ICONIC DOLOMITE NEEDLE PEAKS
With its striking vertical cliffs and rolling meadows, Seceda offers a surreal and breathtaking setting for your elopement. Use the cable cars for quick access from Ortisei or even Alpe di Siusi. Or hike up before the cable car starts, make the hike a little shorter by staying in one of the mountain huts in the area. And don’t forget to explore more than just the ridge, like the scenic hike to Pieralonga that leads you through alpine meadows and meandering paths, offering panoramic views that will take your breath away.
OTHER BEAUTIFUL SPOTS
