  • 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 Dolomiti di Sesto 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 rifugi, and delectable cuisine – and weave them together with great activities: biking, hiking, via ferrata, and plenty of options for kids and adults.

Spend the first few nights in the Dolomiti di Sesto; hike to the Rifugio Lagazuoi where we will overnight and experience the unique mountain inn style, in addition to its superb panoramas and fascinating WWI relics; and end in the hidden Alta Badia valley, a bastion of the ancient Ladin culture that remains intact here in the heart of the Dolomites.
