  • Cinque torri, italy
  • Active & Adventure trips

Soaring high in the sky, Italy's majestic Dolomites play host to our exciting family adventure traverse. 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 the Val Pusteria and Cortina d’Ampezzo to the quaint villages of the Alta Badia.

We take the best of this fairy-tale setting – incredible scenery, gorgeous hotels and Rifugio and delectable cuisine – and we weave them together with great activities: biking, hiking, via ferrata and plenty of options for kids and adults.

After the first nights in Cortina d’Ampezzo, we hike to the Rifugio Scoiattoli where we will overnight, and then on to Rifugio Lagazuoi with sits uperb panoramas, experiencing two nights of the unique mountain inn flair. The final days are spent in the posh family run Relais & Chateaux Rosa Alpina in the hidden Alta Badia valley, the heart of the Dolomites.

     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.
