Walking through spectacular alpine scenery
Well-marked and maintained paths with no dramatic climbs or descents
With the air crisp and fresh, you'll explore off the beaten tourist paths dotted with sun drenched scattered trees and alpine scenery. Throughout your offbeat treks, the lesser-known Dolomites shows off its greatness uneclipsed by its unique pale colour discovered around 18th-century. The UNESCO-listed mountain range consists of 18 peaks covering roughly 350,000 acres of pure beauty. This relaxing walking tour takes on the most scenic hiking trails of the region. You'll begin each walk with a cable car ride giving you unbeatable views of towering limestone pinnacles, spires, evergreen forests, and rolling meadows. After arriving in Bolzano, the beautiful capital of South Tyrol, you'll be taken to a spectacular valley considered as one of the most breathtaking in the 'Ladino' heartland of the Dolomites. This spectacular valley will be your base throughout your holiday.
The walks during your tour follow well-marked trails with no dramatic climbs or descents. During your hike there will be lots of opportunity to explore an assortment of rare flora and fauna, the Dolomites' main claim to fame, and delight in a country style lunch or break or in a vintage mountain hut that truly adds up to your mountain experience in the Italian Alps.
