Dolomites - UNESCO World Heritage Site
The Dolomites have long attracted walkers and climbers drawn by the high mountains, vast limestone cliffs and thick forests. Located close to the border between Italy and Austria, we spend a week exploring the area which has recently been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site thanks to its outstanding natural beauty. Our hikes take us to lakes, along ridges, across passes and to the top of some peaks.
Ridge walks, lakes & iconic Tre Cime
Our walks take us into the Dolomites' National Parks and are point-to-point enabling us to cover more ground and see more of the area. We hike along some quieter trails, make 2 excellent ridge walks above 2000m and traverse in front of the Tre Cime - arguably the most famous landmark in the Dolomites. Throughout the trip there are jaw-dropping views with mountain panoramas and sheer cliffs dropping over 500m.
Charming traditional Alpine hotel with indoor pool/spa & other activities
Our very comfortable family-run 3-star hotel is located in Dobbacio - a small Italian town with a handful of shops, restaurants and perfectly located to head off into the mountains each day. The hotel has well-appointed en-suite rooms, a restaurant, bar, swimming pool, health & fitness spa and sauna. There is one free day where you can visit Cortina, the 5000 year-old ice man at Bolzano or head to Lienz - a medieval town in Austria full of beautiful architecture and museums.
