The Dolomites in winter are positively enchanting. On this eight-day snowshoe trip you’ll hike from one lodge to another, crossing several Dolomitic valleys with incredible panoramic views. Our mountain lodges, or rifugios, provide all meals and linens, so all you have to carry is a light backpack. And, you’ll enjoy the most incredible sunrises and sunsets across snow-swept vistas from these charming alpine lodges.

This itinerary combines the beauty of the region with its cultural and historical highlights. We will snowshoe through areas rich not only in visual appeal, but in artifacts from the First World War. From cannons to galleries built into the mountains, these relics commemorate the bravery of the soldiers who fought in these challenging mountain conditions.

     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.
