Description

The Dolomites are a world-famous Italian mountain range. Join me and cross its stunning peaks on an unforgettable 5-day ski touring expedition!

Part of the Southern Limestone Alps, the Dolomite Mountains stretch from the River Adige to the Piave Valley. Located in northeastern Italy, these beautiful mountains are part of the provinces of Belluno, South Tyrol and Trentino.

The goal of this 5-day ski touring adventure is to cross from the Pala Group (Pale of San Martino) all the way to Lake Braies (also known as Pragser Wildsee and Lake Prags). We will discover amazing descents on the Marmolada, the Sella Group, and the Fanes/Sennes Group.

The classic starting point of the Dolomites traverse is San Martino di Castrozza, located in the most southern part of the massif.  However, I am very flexible and we can start from other places too. We will use the Superski Dolomite lifts only when we need to.  Additionally, we will climb no more than 700 meters per day using skins. Finally, we will get a well deserved rest. After skiing all day long on top quality snow, we will spend the nights in charming mountain huts where we will enjoy delicious Italian foodYou can check the complete itinerary below!

Keep in mind that for this trip you need to be at least an intermediate skier with some ski touring experience and a good fitness level. And please bring fat skis!

So, if you are up for this unforgettable ski touring experience in the Dolomites, please get in touch with me. I am sure that this 5-day adventure will amaze you from beginning to end!

Robert was an incredible guide for our via ferrata experience! It was by far, our favorite day on our two week vacation in Italy. Robert is very experienced, and we felt completely safe and comfortable for the whole hike. We also left our hike with some incredible restaurant and hotel recommendations from him! If we make it back to the dolomites one day, we will definitely be booking another trip with Robert!

Very beautiful trip, with several different interesting types of challenges (need for snow shoes, crampons, varying temperatures, etc.) - We did the ascent in May which still means a lot of snow making the trip quite tough (you need to be in decent shape and have a some experience to enjoy the trip).

We had wonderful days and a lot fun. All arrangments were perfect and easy! Our guide Paolo has been not only an excellent mountain and skiing guide but also he is very nice and empatic person who shared his love and knowledge of the Aosta valley! Wonderful days and skitouring, well organised, we will come again!

We did a 1 day Ferrata with Marica. We've both never climbed a Ferrata before but we are both good hikers. We enjoyed our trip very much and you don't need to be a climber. Marica took good care of us and she is very informative with the local geography and history. We felt very safe with her. If you are traveling near the Dolomite and want to try something a bit out of your comfort zone, I highly recommend doing a ferrata especially with Marica. We did both ferrata ra gusela nuvolau and ferrata-averau. It took us about 6 hours.

Our trip was excellent with PeaksHunter guides. Great communication from Sylvia and our guides Gabriele and Paulo were excellent. They were patient with us, had great knowledge and prioritised our safety. Three of our group managed to summit Grand Paradiso which was an amazing experience with incredible views. The climb and descent in the second day is not to be underestimated. Very good fitness needed!
