Description

Join me on this challenging but rewarding 1-week hiking expedition through the Italian Dolomites!

After we meet up, we will spend the first few days acclimatizing in the stunningly scenic mountain town of Colfosco. We will make the most of our time here by hiking into the mountains and building up our strength for the highlight of our trip.

In the evening, we will be free to enjoy the various restaurants and cafes in the town, tucking into some excellent local cuisine and drinks.

The Dolomites have recently, and rightly, been named a UNESCO world heritage site. You will see why throughout the week, as we enjoy spectacular views of snow-capped mountains and glaciers, sky blue lakes and picturesque evergreen forests.

For those of you who are feeling more adventurous, we will have the option of doing an overnight hike in which we will stay in one of the region’s iconic alpine huts.

Finally, at the end of our trip, we will spend the day hiking to the top of the 3.200 meter Marmolada and enjoy the breathtaking views from its summit. Afterwards, it is time to hike back to Colfosco and say our goodbyes.

So what are you waiting for? Book now for this scenic and exciting 1-week hike through the Italian Dolomites, culminating in us reaching the summit of the Marmolada!

If you like the look of this trip then I think you will also enjoy my 15-day trek through Peru’s Cordillera Huayhuash and tour of Machu Picchu!
