Human-scaled hiking tours

“We only operate in the Dolomites as this is our home turf. We want to share the beauty of this varied and magnificent landscape with others. Many of the hikes we suggest are not in travel books. The places we visit are those same places our parents and grand-parents took us exploring when we were young.”

- Franco, walkthedolomites team leader

Walk the Dolomites tours are geared to satisfy customers from the adventurous intermediate to the seasoned hiker. Walking experience is a must, as our hikes include an average of six to eight hours on the trail every day.

In 2015 we are adding a second hiking tour focused on the Great War that swept Europe and the Dolomites between May 1915 and November 1917. We will trek on the front line that worked its way along the mountain peaks and valleys on a journey into the past. We will walk in the trenches, through the tunnels and on the battle fields. We will visit the largest Alpine open war museum at the Cinque Torri. Details on the Great War in the Dolomites hiking tour will be posted very soon.

Belle Dolomiti and the Great War hiking tours include the following:
* pick-up and drop-off at the Marco Polo airport in Venice.
* all local transportation for the duration of the hike, including the transfer of bags from one site to the next
* 7-night-accommodation in hotels selected for comfort, quality and privacy; magnificent bed and breakfasts nestled in small mountain villages; and quiet alpine rifugi at higher elevations. Breakfast is always included in the price.
