Accessible Dolomites: a heritage for everyone
“The mountains are for everyone, not just climbers: for those seeking rest in silence, and for those who seek even greater rest in thei labours”. This is how Guido Rey, the Italian climber, described the mountains, and this is exactly what a World Heritage Site like the Dolomites should offer.
The Dolomites should be accessible to everyone and a number of routes have already been freed of all barriers to allow everyone to enjoy the extraordinary Dolomite landscape. To make the Heritage Site more accessible, offering experiences and emotions to all those who visit it, whatever their needs and possibilities, the local administrations and associations involved in sport, accessibility and disability in the Dolomites have come together under the coordination of the UNESCO Dolomites Foundation to compile a guide which helps visitors find details of accessible itineraries, so everyone can explore the Dolomites World Heritage Site.
At the end of February, users will be able to access the website www.visitdolomites.com and view 23 different itineraries which are accessible to everyone and cover the nine Systems of the Dolomites recognised by UNESCO. Each itinerary contains clear indications of the level of difficulty, as well as a detailed map, the GPS coordinates and the environmental and geomorphological features of the area.
