Hiking Week in The Dolomites
Explore the mountains of the Italian Dolomites. Be prepared for breathtaking views, the friendly people of Tyrol, amazing food, and comfortable accommodation.
This 8 day holiday (6 days of walking) will take place in the stunning Mountains of The Dolomites.
We plan to visit a different area each day to give you as much variety as possible and to capture the best views of the Dolomites.
You will be in the capable hands of an experienced and knowledgable International Mountain Leader David Norris. Dave takes great pleasure in looking after his clients and imparting his knowledge.
The mountains in this area are majestic with sharp tooth-like ridges appearing from every direction. The mountains have many hidden wonders with beautiful lakes and mountain streams at every turn. There are also plenty of opportunities to sample mountain refuge snacks and beverages with the added bonus of an amazing view.
A continental breakfast and a packed lunch are provided at your accommodation. If you are a fit summer walker and looking to experience some high mountain walking, then this Dolomites trip is for you!
