  • Enjoy snowshoeing in a beautiful natural area in the Dolomites.
  • Contemplate the stunning landscapes around the Mondeval plateau.
  • Take part of a pleasant outdoor activity in the middle of a wilderness area.


On this adventure, I invite you to put your snowshoes on and explore a fantastic natural area near Cortina d’Ampezzo, in the Dolomites. Come with me on this 1-day program and discover the beauty surrounding the Mondeval plateau.

This beautiful natural area belongs to the 1st System Pelmo-Croda da Lago in the Dolomites UNESCO, where we’ll find a wide variety of flora and fauna as well as stunning landscapes. In addition, above Selva di Cadore, we will find the Mondeval Man, a very interesting point regarding archeology and history from the Mesolithic age.

The starting point of our program will be at 9 am in Refuge Giau Pass, at an altitude of 2,236 meters. From there, we’ll cross a beautiful forest near Lastoni di Formin and get to the Forcella Giau, a great viewpoint with incredible landscapes. Finally, we’ll reach the Mondeval plateau and enjoy snowshoeing down. This area has top quality terrain and it’s perfect for this activity. I’m sure you’ll love it!

Please, take into account that this is an estimated itinerary. We can modify it according to weather and snow conditions. As for the requirements, it’s important to be physically fit.

About the guide

I was born in the plain in 1983, but as often happens to those who were born there, I have always loved the mountains. I was three years old when I wore my first skis, not knowing that this would become my strongest passion ... Skiing, walking, climbing: it is since I was a child that I go to the mountains, first with my parents and my grandfather and then with my friends.

The degree in forestry science was only the logical consequence of this passion, as well as the beautiful summers spent managing the refuge Capanna Punta Penia in Marmolada (the highest refuge in the Dolomites, on top of the highest mountain in the Dolomites!), which I call "the bus without wheels" and all over the Dolomites!
The last step (for now...) was to become a Mountain Guide, to let you experience what the mountain transmits to me!
… and to show you the famous " bus without wheels”

What people are saying about Giovanni Orlando

August, 2019

Giovanni was an exceptionally wonderful guide! Our family spent the day with him climbing in Cinque Torri. He was incredibly patient with our children, and was able to find routes that we all enjoyed climbing. We loved every minute of the day and would recommend this trip to any family interested in doing some sport climbing near Cortina/Cinque Torri.
