9 Photos of the Dolomites to Inspire Your Wanderlust

Tucked away in Northern Italy within the Southern Tyrol region (formerly of Austria) lies some of the most dramatic mountainous landscapes in all of Europe.

A lone church sits still amongst a field of flowers as the mountains loom behind.

Woke up like this. No, seriously.

Met some of the locals on top the mountain of Seceda (2500m).

The beautiful crystal clear waters of Lago Di Braies. This view will never get old.

 Need to know what kind of conditioner this guy's using!

How could anyone ever be bored on a planet as amazing as this?!

The 360 view of the Dolomites when the sun is setting is a lot to take in...words cannot express.

There are not enough pictures of Seceda in the world, this place is magical for golden hour!

Sunrise, an empty Lago Di Braies all to ourselves, and views like this make for the perfect morning.
