Winter holidays at the Plan de Corones/Kronplatz – what else is there?
Skiing, cross-country skiing, winter trekkiing… what else? If you wish to enrich your winter holiday in the Dolomites with some less-obvious activities, here are a few pointers for you.
A toboggan ride is the most direct – and probably fastest – way to fun for young and old.
