Description

Would you like to enjoy a unique family adventure in the Dolomites? Then join me on this 4-day program in Cortina d’Ampezzo and I will show you some amazing WWI tunnels, via ferratas and rock climbing options for all levels that will make your family holiday unforgettable!

Outdoor adventures are a great way for families to bond and the Dolomites offer a wide variety of options as well as stunning landscapes to explore. On this 4-day program, I have designed an itinerary that combines different activities to keep things fun and interesting for everyone. Each day, we will enjoy a hike and a climb or a via ferrata. However, the program can be adapted to suit everyone’s needs, and some of the activities are optional.

On this program, we will sleep in 3 different huts. Each hut is no more than a 2-hour hike away from the next. Therefore, participants will need to be able to hike a minimum of 2 hours a day. Of course, there will be plenty more to do if you are up for it too! I will be there every step of the way to help and guide you. Children as young as 5 can join. You can find a detailed description of the itinerary below.

You can also read about one family’s adventure in the Dolomites here.

Mountain Guide

I was born in Bozen and I have been living all my life long in Fassa Valley, Dolomites. That's why my native language is ladin, a reto-romanic language spoken around Sella.

My big passion besides traveling is mountains and guiding because I love to show the people the beauty of the mountains.

I was a member of the Italian National Alpine Ski from 1990 to 1997 when I became Ski Instructor. In 2009

I became an IFMAG Mountain guide. I guide in the Dolomites, Sarca valley, Sizialian vulcanoes, Ortles Cevedale area, and Sardinia.
