Snowshoeing in Tre Cime di Lavaredo, Dolomites

We truly had an unforgettable snowshoeing tour with Dean! We couldn’t have asked for a better guide! Even though my snowshoeing skills were not the best, he was very patient. He definitely has the skills and was incredibly knowledgeable. He made sure we stayed safe and kept a close eye on everyone. He was kind enough to take photos of us! You can tell he loves what he does. You will not be disappointed with Dean! As for the Explore-Share service website….it made the booking process and communication extremely easy. I emailed with questions first and within 24 hours I had a response and decided to book. All in all the whole experience was great!

Snowshoeing in Tre Cime di Lavaredo, Dolomites

We had a wonderful day today with Dean as our guide at the "Tre Cime". He was very patient with us (we're not particularly fast walking up a mountain), but we never felt pressured. He offered us some additional detour to give us an additional special view, but made clear that we would have to see first if the conditions were good enough for us to pass, as otherwise it would be too dangereous. We were lucky and were able to walk on, but on the "dangerous" icy passage over a cliff he walked under my wife making sure she was safe - overall, we felt that we were in very good hands with you, Dean, thank you very much!!

Snowshoeing day in the Brenta Dolomites- Adamello Brenta Nature Park

We had an amazing day out in the mountains with Giorgio. He's a great tour guide, happy to answer all the questions you have before or on the day of the hike and very quick to respond your messages. It was a beautiful day for snow shoeing, blue skies and breathtaking views, we can only highly recommend booking a tour with Giorgio, it's well worth it as you will have a super fun day that you will remember for a very long time. Thanks again Giorgio for getting us around the mountains and we hope to see you again some time! Vanessa & Ross

There are many reasons for choosing Snowshoeing in Italy

The Italian Alps are gorgeous. Stunningly scenic mountains, the karst features of the Dolomites and the alpine lakes and forests all make for a spectacular backdrop to any snowshoeing adventure. Head out for an incredible winter hike in any of these spectacular landscapes, you won’t regret it.

Country Code:






Best time to visit:

December to April. Some guides offer trips in May as well

What’s the weather like?

During the winter months, the north of Italy is generally quite cold with mean daily temperatures of -7 ºC. Temperatures increase a bit in the spring, but not by much. While the area receives plenty of snowfall, there are also many clear days; ideal conditions for ski touring

How to get there:

This depends on where you’re headed. For the Aosta Valley and Piedmont, flights into the Geneva International Airport (GVA) or the international airport in Turin (TRN) get you there most quickly. If you’re headed to the Dolomites, then flying into the Venice airport (VCE). From each of these, the most popular starting points can be reached by bus, train or airport shuttle

More info about Snowshoeing in Italy:

With mountains running all across the north and through the center of Italy, it is little wonder that there are so many incredible snowshoeing opportunities in the country. Away from the aforementioned ones, there are plenty of others to see and experience. Other popular spots include the Monte Rosa massif further to the west. Boasting plenty of minor peaks throughout the massif as well as 4,634 meter high main peak, there is plenty to see and explore here. Heading to Gran Paradiso and romping through the surrounding national park is another excellent spot to explore on some snowshoes. This peak is also fairly easy to climb on snowshoes, as long as you are fit enough, and provides excellent views of Mont Blanc, Monte Rosa and the Matterhorn
