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.

Description

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.

AMAZING! This was a last minute decision and my first multi day trekking tour and it far exceeded my expectations. The communication and preparation was comprehensive and accurate. Our guide (Lindsay) was phenomenal. The route was the perfect mix of challenge and comfort. I will definitely be booking my next hiking trek thru Emma.

We booked 3 full days of private showshoeing in Chamonix. Emma Jack was very responsive to our inquiry during booking and our emails leading up to our trip. We were paired with a local guide, Sebastian, who was very knowledgeable about the Chamonix area and picked the perfect spots for us to snowshoe each day based on the weather and snowfall accumulation. I highly recommend booking your trip with Emma Jack and would use her again if we return.

Your service was wonderful - it was easy to use and put me in touch with my hiking guide Suze through Cloud 9 Adventure! I couldn't have asked for a better guide or day of hiking in Chamonix.

Emma is a very nice and attentive guide. She is super healthy and energetic, always smiling. She has a great enthusiasm in general. Very knowledgeable about nature, she shares and teaches with care. Also, she always pays attention to each and any person, and especially adapts pace so that the hike remains a pleasant adventure and memory for all. Plus, she is very cautious of weather and mountain conditions, and has a lot of resources and ideas to adapt to the situation and hikers. In short, very nice and professional! You feel in good hands.
