Located towards the Eastern end of the Alps’ great curve from the Mediterranean coast through Central Europe to the Balkans, the Dolomites region occupies an area of Northern Italy as large as Wales. Its world famous fairy tale spires, broad rock plateaus and mountain lakes provide a uniquely stunning environment. Its plunging forested valleys deservedly attract mountain lovers and keen walkers. One Foot Abroad are proud to offer this destination to you.
This adventurous trip takes you to the highest part of the Dolomites, following rivers and lakes. You will experience the contrast between the lush green valley and the massive limestone peaks looming above you.
This trip alternates between nights in Cortina and high mountain refuges. This enables you to enjoy the comfort of a hotel, as well as getting the unique feeling of high altitude while staying in amazingly located refuges. Every day you have a choice between a “Moderate+” or a “Challenging” itinerary, starting and finishing at the same point. This way, you can vary the difficulty by doing some challenging days and some easier days, depending on the weather, your fitness and experience and what you fancy. In Cortina, you will stay in comfortable hotels, ranging from 2* to 4*.
Visitors to the Dolomites in summer 2019 need to be aware of possible problems regarding paths. The situation is ongoing. The best advice is to check locally with Tourist Offices and refuges, do not under any circumstances take risks, and be versatile – if your planned route is closed, be prepared to change your plans and take an alternate path.
