Dolomites Passport 2.0
The Dolomites Passport app is a modern-day version of the Dolomites Passport, the original booklet which real lovers of the Dolomites still use and guard jealously. With the paper passport, every time you visit a refuge, you get your passport stamped by the owner, showing you have visited it. It is a way of keeping track of where you have been and remembering the unforgettable emotions that only the mountains can convey. While your emotions remain the same, the app can make your trip more enjoyable with practical information available anywhere and everywhere, irrespective of your Internet connection.
Dolomites Passport, challenge your friends and become an unbeatable discoverer of the UNESCO Dolomites!
As well as giving you information about the most beautiful Natural Heritage Site in the world, the Dolomites Passport app keeps track of your route. The traditional stamps collected in the paper version of the Dolomites Passport are integrated into the app in the form of badges. Every time a walker reaches a place of interest, whether it is a panoramic balcony, a refuge, a museum or one of the visitor centres in the parks, he can ‘check in’. This interactive feature allows him to earn points, creating a profile which can range from shy to invincible explorer, from curious to determined curator, from fearless to super discoverer. A variety of factors help determine the score and the profile. The challenge is to reach the top spot on the podium: invincible discoverer!
There are 66 refuges in the UNESCO Dolomites and each one is different yet representative of the core zone of the Heritage Site. The app provides a data sheet for each refuge with a map and contact details.
The Dolomites offer a variety of museums which combine nature and culture, history and innovation, tradition and research, ethnography and folk culture to illustrate the Dolomites from different points of view. Each museum has a dedicated entry with all the practical information you need for your visit.
