Guided Walking Holidays - In the Heart of the Dolomites You can see the path, a white ribbon climbing up through pines and then open ground into the distance. It looks daunting on the way up but raise your gaze to the jagged Dolomitic peaks above you and suddenly everything falls into the correct perspective. Yes, the climbing will be challenging but look again at the peaks and the rewards are oh, so obvious!Experience this journey with Ramblers Walking Holidays. Now begin your climb. The stony path feels good underfoot, the morning skies clear and blue, the sun not yet uncomfortably warm. In moments the gentle murmur of human habitation from the town below is reduced almost to a melody by the distance. With each step the views become more expansive and the goal looks a step closer. Grass and scrub gives way to rock and scree and here now are the magnificent views for which the Dolomites are known. Each step seems lighter and easier in the presence of such beauty. From here it is obvious to all why one would choose to walk the Dolomites. The clear air and vast panoramas, on this walk and every walk in this small area of northern Italy, are over endowed with grandeur. The dairy herds are taken up to high pasture adding character and perspective to this vast landscape reminding us that man has lived amongst these peaks for millennia. If you are lucky you will hear and see marmots, chamois mountain goats, and overhead, kites, buzzards and golden eagles. Our higher grade walks offer plenty of chances to reach local summits. Piz Boe at 3150m is the highest point and perhaps offers the most outstanding views. However this is only one example of the huge range of peaks, ridges, plains and valleys to be enjoyed.
