Highlights

 
  • Spend a week snowshoeing through the Dolomites of Italy.

  • Scale several different peaks in the majestic range.

  • Spend each night in a comfortable hotel room.


 
Famous around the world for its array of amazing views and incredible peaks, the Dolomites of Italy are a true wonder. And on this week long snowshoeing expedition, you will get to explore a number of great peaks throughout the majestic mountain range.

Our trip in the Dolomites will take place not far away from Cortina d’Ampezzo, a ski resort town that is definitely worth a visit either before, or after this trip, or both if you have the time!

The trip will begin in Dobbiaco, which is where our hotel is located. From the hotel, every day, you will get to visit a new mountain pass or peak.  I know you’ll love each one.

The pass and peaks visited on this trip include the following.

  • Strudelkopf (2,307m)
  • Corni de Fana (2,663m)
  • Kalkstein Jochi (2,326m)
  • Tre Cime (The three peaks) (2,999m)
  • Kreuzberg Pass (1,636m)
  • Lutterkopf (2,295m)
  • Durakopf (2,275m)

With such a varied list of locations, you can be sure this trip will be as memorable as it will be enjoyable. However, due to the variety of locations, it is important for participants to be in good physical condition, as the pace of this trip will be constant. There will also be a lot of elevation throughout the week as well.

Exploring the Dolomites, particularly during the winter, is an unforgettable experience. And if you would like to enjoy that experience for yourself, for an entire week, all you have to do is send me a request.

I can also take you on another week long snowshoeing trip in Vallee de la Claree in the French Alps.
