Vacation with dog

Dear dog-lovers,
We are delighted that your four-legged friend is joining you on your trip to our Dolomites Region, and wish you the very warmest of welcomes. The Seiser Alm is a nature reserve, a protected area and a part of the Dolomites UNESCO World Heritage. The villages of the area are located amidst woodland which is home to a wealth of flora and fauna, that’s why we kindly ask you to lead your dog on a leash at all times.

In public places (and therefore also when hiking in the mountains) it is mandatory to keep dogs on a leash.

Dogs can travel on the Seiser Alm Cable Car and all lifts (with a lead and muzzle for safety reasons). Prices for the transport of dogs can be found at

A ticket must be bought for dogs travelling on public transport and on Seiser Alm Express (bus no. 10), and free of charge on shuttle buses to the Seiser Alm Aerial Cableway valley station and on the Almbus (bus no. 11). Leads and muzzles are obligatory. Guide dogs and small animals that can be held or sit on a lap travel free of charge. For orientation purposes: Animals that fit into a carrier box measuring a maximum of 70x30x50 cm do not require a ticket.

Dogs are not permitted in a number of areas, including children’s play parks, school playgrounds and cemeteries. These areas are signposted accordingly. Private property may not be entered or used as a dog toilet.

Please meet the cattle with special caution.
Go in between cattle and dog, leading your dog the opposite side. Don’t run, the animals react to fast movements! Pass them calmly while keeping an eye on them. Should the animal come at you aggressively, unleash your dog so he can get to safety faster. The cattle will be distracted and you’ll be able to leave the dangerous zone calmly and fast paced.

In the Winter months there are numerous walking trails. Please be careful not to stray onto cross-country skiing tracks with your dog, as they are reserved for skiers.

Your four-legged friend‘s needs …
Numerous dog-toilet stations provide plastic bags to dispose of your dog’s waste. It is obligatory to carry a supply of these bags with you and to dispose of the waste as soon as possible in a trash bin.

It’s prohibited to dispose of the bags outdoors anywhere else.
