TRIP HIGHLIGHTS
  • Discover the fairy tale world of the Dolomites
  • Experience the rich Ladin culture with many traditions that make this region so unique
  • Enjoy the atmosphere of the mountain rifugios, the real mountaineer flair

This itinerary lets us visit by foot some of the most incredible areas in the Dolomites.
The UNESCO World Heritage Committee has recognized the uniqueness of this Italian mountain group and placed it under protection. The weird towers and crags are favorite motifs for postcards and paintings, though they also make a splendid backdrop for outdoor pursuits such as walking, climbing and skiing.
Wild alpine meadows, deciduous and evergreen woods, high altitude lunar-like terrain soaring peaks, dramatic walls and towering heights alternate with the refined South Tyrolean towns of Val Gardena and Alta Badia and hidden delicious mountain inns that we encounter during our daily hikes.

     Molto Bene!
    Great views, great places to stay, great food/drink and even great weather.....you were able to accommodate a 15 month old as well as the over 50 crowd.  Lots of logistics for you to manage and it was well done.  We'll have great, fun memories of your beautiful country and we'll be talking about this trip for a long time. Please use me as a positive reference for your company any time.
