Follow experienced mountain leader Lucia on this 6-day adventure in the Dolomites mountains and enjoy hiking around Zemola Valley.
Relax in a beautiful natural environment for 6 days.
Explore the Zemola Valley and contemplate its incredible landscapes.
Enjoy camping in the middle of the wilderness and meet the local animals.
The Friulian Dolomites Natural Park is a protected area and a UNESCO World Heritage site in the Friuli-Venezia Julia region of Italy. Zemola Valley is situated here and it’s where our program takes place amongst stunning valleys, woods and mountains!
During the first part of this trip, we’ll go on a hut-to-hut tour in the Zemola Valley at an altitude of 1,200 meters. We will enjoy the stunning views and the sweet silence of nature. Additionally, we’ll explore the areas surrounding Rifugio Cava Buscada and Rifugio Maniago. While hiking, we’ll be able to see part of the local wildlife, such as eagles, marmots, deer and mountain goats.
On the second part of the program, I propose to go to another alpine valley in the area: Cimoliana Valley. Here, we can either choose to do day hikes or take a two-day hike with an overnight in a bivouac. We’ll arrange this according to your preferences.
Please, keep in mind that this program can get demanding sometimes. Therefore, you need to be physically fit.
If you think that this program is interesting and would like to try it, all you have to do is send the request and book your place. I will be very happy to guide you around Zemola Valley.
Another option could be this hiking tour in Mount Pelmo, also in the Dolomites.
My love for the mountains grew up with me in the flats of Romagna, thanks to my family that let me spent all my vacations in the Dolomites when I was a child. The Dolomites and the mountains between Romagna and Tuscany are the most vivid memories I have of my childhood.
Then I forgot the outdoors for a few years, and spent some time following the other great passion I have: travelling. When I wasn't at school I spent all my time wandering from one hostel to the other all around Europe with my best friend, always searching for new landscapes and new emotions.
I graduated from high school as Business and Programming Consultant, then I completely changed my core subject as I attended the Undergraduate Courses in Anthropological Sciences at Bologna's University. My thesis project brought me back to the mountains, with a research in Landscape and Disaster Anthropology that took me to Erto for the fieldwork, the town where I spent the last six years!
After that I attended the Graduate Courses in Cultural Anthropology, Ethnology and Ethnolinguistics at Ca'Foscari University in Venice, and this time I wrote a thesis on Alpinism. The subject was again Landscape and Risk Anthropology, but this time fieldwork took me to all the best climbing sites in Europe and beyond: Mont Blanc, Arco, Siurana, Montserrat, Elbsandsteingebirge, Céüse, Osp, the Todra Gorge in Morocco and other more...
Once finished with University I decided to turn my passion into a profession, so I took part in the selection for the courses organized by the UIAGM Mountain Guide's Association, and after a year of hiking and studying I became a Mountain Leader.
Now I take other people with me to discover the wonderful vertical world of our mountains, and enjoy the great times together in the outdoors.
It was lovely day. It is one of the best day we had in Italy. Lucia was very friendly and professional. We really liked the hike and she adjusted the hike according to our ability. We saw the open air museum for war . It was interesting. At the end , we had our lunch in the hut . The food was very delicious . I highly recommended this experience. Don’t miss it if you are in Dolomites.
I approached Gauthier about doing a hike with Lucia at the 11th hour and he was quick to respond. They tailored the hike to suit my 10 year old. While the terrain is something we could have navigated on our own - it was fabulous having Lucia as our guide. She knew all the WW1 history of the area, and the geology around how the Dolomites were formed. It was fascinating
i cannot say enough good things about lucia! she got me through to the top both physically and mentally. give her 10 stars!!!! the hike itself gets 5 stars...my age limited my enjoyment of it to about 1 star. i simply bit off more than i could chew. at age 65, 5 star experience, but at nearly 87 ....too much for me.
